Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has described the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections in Nigeria as proof of the performance of the Buhari administration.
Garba Shehu made this assertion on Thursday in his office in Abuja when he was appointed Grand Patron of the Arewa Young Lawyers’ Forum (AYLF).
Shehu asserted that the triumph of President-elect Bola Tinubu, Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima and governorship candidates had established the APC as a “dominant national party.”
He noted that an opposition victory in February and March would have been a career-ending moment for many APC leaders.
According to him: “APC victory in the election is a watershed moment for the Buhari government, its orientation, its programmes and projects.
“In the hands of the opposition, many of the laudable programmes of the Buhari administration would have been sabotaged or unimplemented.”
Shehu added that Tinubu/Shettima’s victory not only ensures an orderly transfer of power but also the safety of the policies of the outgoing government.
