The ruling All Progressive Congress APC, has said Nigerians want a working president and not a talker as the government strife to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement on Saturday by the APC publicity secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party said ‘a few Nigerians want a President whose preoccupation is talking; while the majority voted for a President who is deploying his energy to working.’
The APC also commended many Nigerians who rallied behind the President, Muhammadu Buhari with their own contributions, including the ministers who voluntary donated 50 percent of their March salary. Adding that it would bolster the confidence of ordinary Nigerians.
The party condemned those its described as ‘wailers’ who its alleged were spreading fake news on the president’s coronavirus test result and allegation of hijacking of a teaching hospital ventilator to the villa.
It therefore noted that the task before them is for all Nigerians to focus and collectively beat the coronavirus and the president is tirelessly leading the charge.
APC tweeted: “A few Nigerians want a President whose preoccupation is talking, while the majority voted for a President who is deploying his energy to working. We all can see the effect of the grand efforts being led by President Muhammadu Buhari to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic in Nigeria.
“The efficiency of the field workers and other state actors has ensured we are able to minimize the spread so far with many states taking proactive steps to forestall wide spread of the very infectious virus.
“We are glad to see many Nigerians rallying behind the President with their own contributions. Notably, the news of the ministers’ voluntary donation of 50 percent of their March salary is unprecedented. We commend the foresight of the Minister of State for Transportation, Sen. Gbemisola Saraki in coordinating this patriotic action.
“Beyond the monetary donation, the gesture by the ministers would bolster confidence of ordinary Nigerians to call up the resilience for which we are known for. It would also encourage many more organisations and other well-to-do Nigerians to lend support to the presidential committee.
“Meanwhile,the wailers who have severally professed their death wish for @MBuhari since 2015 have, again, found their voices amid the coronavirus outbreak. From conjuring and spreading fake news on the president’s coronavirus test result, to spurious allegation of hijacking of a teaching hospital ventilator to the villa and to the purported smuggling of the President to the United Kingdom, they are up to their ignominious pastime and tired antics.
“We will not be distracted or deterred because their unpatriotic actions serve as a reminder to the failed and rejected past.”
It concluded: “Right now, the task before us is for all Nigerians to focus and collectively beat the coronavirus. To achieve this, the president is tirelessly leading the charge through action.”
