The minister said Buhari had done so well to merit re-election.

“I stand before you today to say Mr. President has done so well in all ramifications.

“He will be returned by Nigerians in 2019 in a landslide victory,” he said.

Ngige, who noted that the party would contest all elective positions in the general elections, urged party faithful to work hard to ensure that the APC scores not less than 70 per cent of the votes cast in the state.
