FORMER presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and founder of Leadership Group Limited, Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah, yesterday, congratulated General Muhammadu Buhari who emerged as the presidential candidate of the party at the APC’s third convention and his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).
This came as former governor of Kwara State and chairman, Senate committee on the environment, Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki (C.O.N) also extended his congratulations to Gen. Buhari and Prof. Osinbajo.
Nda-Isaiah said in a statement that the announcement of Osinbajo, a distinguished professor of law and a man of strong integrity as running mate, was coinciding with the 72nd birthday of Gen. Buhari, who has served the country selflessly.
He said he was confident that the candidates will lead the APC to victory in the forthcoming elections.
Senator Bukola Saraki on his part said the emergence of Prof. Osinbajo, a senior advocate of Nigeria, SAN, and a committed pastor of unquestionable integrity from the south west further attests to the commitment of the All Progressives Congress to fairness and equality.
While lauding the leadership role of Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu which led to the emergence of Osinbajo, Saraki said that Tinubu’s belief in the Nigerian project which he sees as bigger than any individual interest, he made it clear that we cannot ignore the current happenings around the country that require that as a party, we must take extra caution and be sensitive to every ethnicity and religion by picking a Christian candidate.
