Former Imo Action Alliance (AA) governorship candidate, Mr Uche Nwosu, has expressed optimism that achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration were obvious to earn the All Progressives Congress (APC) continuity in power by 2023.

Nwosu, who recently returned to the APC along with his supporters, expressed the optimism in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said he was not surprised that Buhari assured Nigerians that he would not impose his successor on the party or the country, saying “I believe him; that is him and that is leadership.

“The APC under President Buhari has done well in the areas of fight against corruption, insecurity and agricultural development.

“In the area of agriculture, we now have abundance of locally produced rice. In the area of fight against corruption, corrupt people are now scared. In the area of integrity Nigerians are now happy to reveal their identities anywhere in the world,” he said.

Nwosu added that Buhari had also given voices and recognition to young Nigerians.

“It is because of the Not Too Young to Run Bill that made some of us to run in the last general elections. It is because of the bill that someone like me decided to run for governorship election in Imo,” he said.

He said the party would leverage on Buhari’s achievements that cut across different sectors of the country’s economy.

“If the president made locally produce rice available to Nigerians, if he has fought corruption and he has made Nigeria’s name to be dear to other nations, we should leverage on that.

“It is we that are governors, leaders and members of the party that should leverage on his achievements,” he added.

Nwosu however advised the party to also build on Buhari’s achievements, especially in the area of youths empowerment within the next four years.

“We should leverage more on youths empowerment because 60 to 70 per cent of the population are youth. We need to empower more youths,” he said.
