President Muhammadu Buhari has launched the women and youth presidential campaign team led by Aisha, his wife.
Speaking at the launch which took place at the presidential villa in Abuja, the president asked members of the team to embark on door-to-door campaign for the success of the party in the coming general election.
“In carrying out this assignment, I expect from members of this team the same loyalty and support which you exhibited in 2015,” he said.
“Let us remind Nigerians about our plans, our good work and achievements: tell the people why they should give us another four years.
“I call on you to redouble your efforts and re-elect us in February, so that you can witness the next level of change.
“To all Nigerians, I appreciate your love and support. I hope you will renew the mandate you overwhelmingly gave us in 2015.
“Please do not be distracted, our country is on course, I am very pleased to inaugurate the Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team.
“I charge you to reach out to all Nigerians door-to-door and remind them why we need another four years.
“I am happy to tell you that we have made numerous landmark achievements. The change remains unshaken and continues until we return Nigeria on track to assume its rightful place among the comity of nations.”
He said the campaign team was constituted to support the existing APC Presidential Campaign Council, which he chairs.
He underscored the importance of women and youths in electioneering campaign, urging them to remain steadfast in the task of consolidating the gains recorded by the APC administration.
