Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello has decribed those who left the All Progressive Congress ( APC) recently as fair -weather friends who came for the good times.
He spoke on Wednesday night to young supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari,during a dinner at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, the defectors left because of the President’s insistence on personal integrity, fiscal prudence, equality before the law, national security, party discipline, international dignity and a single-minded war on corruption.
He said supporters of the President have three things in common which are” One, believe in Nigeria, two, belief in Nigeria’s potential for Greatness, and three, belief in President Muhammadu Buhari as the best person to continue leading Nigeria towards greatness at this point in our history.
He said “belief in Nigeria means you love this country and truly want the best for her. Belief in her potential for greatness means you are ready for the sacrifices of nation-building. Belief in Mr. President means you still have absolute confidence in him as the best leader for our nation till 2023 at least.
“These three great beliefs are vital if our commitment to confront the odds and win in 2019 is to remain unshaken. It is only when you believe Nigeria is worth fighting for that you can commit your all to make sure she does not fall again into the hands of the PDP or a similar swarm of locusts.
“The APC that is going into the 2019 General Elections is radically different from the APC which won the 2015 Presidential Elections. Our party has been through a steep learning curve and the lessons have been difficult, even painful, in many instances.
“Fair-weather friends who came for the good times have left, disappointed by Mr. President’s insistence on personal integrity, fiscal prudence, equality before the law, national security, party discipline, international dignity and a single-minded war on corruption.
“We are charged with telling the story of this Administration from now till victory is gained in 2019. The immediate task before us is to convince the masses that everything Mr. President has done is for our overall benefit,” he said.
