APC national chairman Abdullahi Adamu says the party will make Nigeria the biggest economy if Bola Tinubu is elected president.
Mr Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, is contesting in Saturday’s presidential election.
“In this connection, we assure that the APC remains committed to implementing ideas that will continue to make Nigeria the biggest economy in Africa,” Mr Adamu said.
He said this while speaking with journalists on Wednesday in Abuja on the party’s chances.
“The APC is fully prepared and ready to go into this election. For us as a party, the only result we expect from this election is victory. We have worked hard, really hard. No party has been able to put up a robust campaign like the APC did,” stated the party chair. “I am sure that the efforts we have put into this campaign will definitely result in successes at the polls.”
He called on the party supporters and agents to conduct themselves peacefully and be vigilant in the polls. Mr Adamu also expressed optimism that Mr Tinubu would bring renewed hope to Nigerians if elected president.
The APC chair added, “We told Nigerians to have confidence in the ability of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to bring renewed hope to them. I assure every Nigerian that the next APC administration will not only build on monumental achievements of the past eight years, it will open new areas of development for the country.”
He added that in keeping with its commitment to a peaceful electoral system, the APC ran an issue-based and hitch-free campaign devoid of mudslinging and other provocative acts.
Mr Adamu said the party focussed on issues concerning Nigerians and assured that it had everything it takes to reset the country.
