President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured Nigerian women and youths that he will not disappoint them in the next four years of his administration.
Backstory: The President gave the assurance at a victory dinner for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women and Youth Campaign Council which held on Saturday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The APC Women and Youth Campaign Council was headed by his wife, Aisha Buhari. The President at the dinner acknowledged the role played by women and youths towards his reelection victory.
“I very much appreciate your coming here tonight but I’m congratulating ourselves for succeeding, if we had failed, my good God, thank goodness we have succeeded.”
The group demanded more representation of women and youth in Buhari’s next cabinet. Buhari himself promised that only those with integrity and interest of Nigeria will be considered for appointment to the next cabinet.
Buhari faulted the 16-year rule of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), accusing the party of wasting the nation’s resources and allowing for infrastructural decays.
