Chairman of the ruling APC, Adams Oshiomhole, says the President Muhammadu Buhari is ready for his re-election campaigns. He told Aso Rock correspondents: “We are fully ready, we have done with our primaries and filled our nominations.
“As you know, INEC still has a window between now and first of January to deal with issues of substitution. As of campaigns, we are ready.
“We are going to announce the date and programme for our campaigns. My idea of kick-off will be the day we will do our first presidential rally where Mr President as our candidate and other candidates, party leaders will assemble in a venue that will be agreeable to all of us.
“There will be two sets of messages. One, on what we have done in the past, without failing to remind people of where we were before, what we are going to do in the next four years, and a couple of things we believe we will be doing differently.
“President Buhari if compared to the rest of the candidates, there is no basis to compare day and night. The real issue in this election is not going to be religion. It is not going to be about ethnicity.
“Central to the issue and given our past experience as a country, we know that what makes a difference is the character, the issue of integrity of the candidates.’’
According to Oshiomhole, the campaign is going to be focusing on character and integrity of those who want to govern the country.
