Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says in the history of Nigeria, no other government can match the Buhari administration in terms of touching lives.
Adamu said this in his inaugural speech as chairman of Nigeria’s ruling party.
Daily Trust had reported how Adamu emerged at the convention which held at Eagle Square, Abuja, on Saturday.
In his remarks, the ruling party chair also extended hand of friendship to the aspirants who withdrew from the race, saying they would “succeed in God’s time”.
“On behalf of my colleagues, the newly elected members of the National Working Committee of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), I like to express our gratitude to the Almighty God, our very sincere thanks to our leader, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, Governors in the fold of our Party, the Chairman and Members of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, (CECPC), delegates to the convention, to all our leaders at various levels, as well as to all members of our great party nationwide for electing us into these positions of very high responsibility.”
“We accept the onerous responsibility that you have placed on our shoulders and we will work hard to ensure that we fulfill your expectations for the greater good of our great party and of our dear country.
“For almost seven years now, APC Administrations at the Federal, state and local levels have been battling night and day in order to enhance the livelihood of Nigerians through various policies, programmes and projects.
“No Administration in the history of Nigeria has performed as much as we did in building key infrastructure and in uplifting the living conditions of the Nigerian people. Projects that once existed only in the dreams of Nigerians such as the Second Niger Bridge, complete rehabilitation of the Lagos-Ibadan dual carriageway, the Lagos-Ibadan express rail, the Abuja-Kaduna express light rail, the Ajaokuta-Kaduna-Kano pipeline and many others, have either been started and completed during our Administration or have been inherited in abandoned conditions and have made rapid progress in the last seven years.
“No government can satisfy everybody, however hard it works. Some work will always be left undone and every work done will continue to need maintenance, expansion and improvement.”
