*Adds: Buhari administration remains focused on improving infrastructure, lives of Nigerians.

“Let me say to you that what we are going through in our country is a battle for the good of the common man.  The day that Muhammadu Buhari was voted in as President, there were many people who knew that from that day, there will be no stealing in government, there will be no more stealing of the money of the people. We will focus on helping the people of Nigeria, the common people of Nigeria.”  

“Today, many people who were in government before, who had stolen the money of the people, now want to come back to continue to steal the money. But we say no, we say no way, you cannot come back! So long as this country is run by an honest man, like Muhammadu Buhari, we will always be happy and we will make it work, I can assure you that we have good plans and we will do better and better. Today, we are building Lagos-Kano railway, we are building all the roads everywhere in Nigeria, there is nowhere we are not building roads.” – Acting President Osinbajo

REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, PROF. YEMI OSINBAJO, SAN, GCON, ACTING PRESIDENT, THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, AT THE CAMPAIGN RALLY FOR HON. AHMAD BABBA KAITA, IN KATSINA STATE, ON THURSDAY, 9TH AUGUST, 2018.

PROTOCOLS

I am here representing President Muhammadu Buhari, and you know, he would have been here by himself but I think it is a good opportunity for me to be here.

I am not going to talk for long at all, because my chairman has already spoken very well and His Excellency, the Governor has spoken, the Governor of Kano State has also spoken, so I won’t speak too long. I want to say that there are three important reasons why we will make sure that we vote on Saturday for our candidate who is here, Hon. Ahmad Babba Kaita.

The three reasons why we must vote for him: the first reason is that we must have a majority in the Senate, politics is about numbers.  You cannot make a mistake; you cannot say you cannot vote for our own person. Politics is about numbers. You must make sure that you vote him in because we want to maintain our majority in the Senate of Nigeria.

The second reason is the memory of our own very dear departed Senator, Senator Mustapha Bukar, because of his memory; we must not allow anybody but our own senator.

The third reason as you know is that Katsina and even this particular constituency, is the constituency of Mr. President. Every vote for Kaita is the vote for Mr. President, so we have no choice, we must vote for Mr. President. That’s why we are all here, to make sure that there is no problem at all in this election and that we all vote in the right way.

Let me say to you that what we are going through in our country is a battle for the good of the common man.  The day that Muhammadu Buhari was voted in as President, there were many people who knew that from that day; there will be no stealing in government, there will be no more stealing of the money of the people. We will focus on helping the people of Nigeria, the common people of Nigeria.

That is why today, many people who were in government before, who had stolen the money of the people, now want to come back to continue to steal the money. But we say no, we say no way, you cannot come back! So long as this country is run by an honest man, like Muhammadu Buhari, we will always be happy and we will make it work, I can assure you that we have good plans and we will do better and better.

Today, we are building Lagos-Kano railway, we are building all the roads everywhere in Nigeria, there is nowhere we are not building roads.

Forty years ago, they abandoned Mambila Hydro project, now we are doing it.  Even the second Niger Bridge, we are doing it and we are earning less money than we earned before.  When they were in government, they were earning ten times what we are earning today, but we are doing more because we are not stealing the money.

I want you to remember all the time, that for the interest of all of us and the interest of the common man, we must continue to vote APC and I’m saying to you today, this my brother who is standing here, Hon. Ahmad Babba Kaita, will now become Senator Ahmad Babba Kaita by the grace of God.

Thank you very much and God bless you.
