According to a statement by Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, Buhari said the former Borno governor “will not disappoint” Nigerians.
The president also thanked the members of the party for their efforts towards ensuring the success of the party’s national convention, as well as the APC primaries.
“I want to thank you all for the roles you played in the build-up, first to our national convention earlier this year, and later, to the primary elections,” Buhari was quoted aa saying.
“You were all of one mind, wanting the best for the Party, with the candidate emerging in a free and fair manner.
“For us all, the cohesion and unity of the Party was the first priority, and ambition was second. I am glad that you all saw the larger picture, rather than narrow, self-serving interests.”
