Chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari will fulfill his campaign promises with the support of all.

They gave the assurances in separate interviews with NAN on Friday on the sideline of the 2015 Presidential Inauguration ceremony held at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

Mr Lai Mohammed, the APC’s National Pubicity Secretary, however, urged Nigerians to be patient with the new administration as the administration was ready to make extra sacrifices in order to satisfy the expectations of Nigerians.

“We are all excited and we feel elated because the day that we thought was not possible has finally comes.

“With today also comes very heavy burdens and responsibilities because the expectation out there is very high and people are expecting change overnight.

“Change might not come overnight in the sense of coming on Saturday but we are going to set the moral tone from today.

“Nigerians would not t accept any excuses, therefore, we must make more sacrifices to ensure that we deliver on a proper note.”

On his part, Sen. Olorunibe Mamora, Deputy Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, said that change already began when Nigeria made history by electing an opposition party which was the first in its history.

According to him, the challenges on ground are enormous but the new administration under the APC would strive to tackle three main issues of insecurity, corruption, and economy.

“In spite of the daunting challenges, I can assure you that we are undaunted and we would do our best to meet the yearnings and of the people.

“I also need to ask that the people must be patient and this things cannot be done overnight.

“Insecurity would be tackled, corruption would be tackled and economy would be tackled and the three of them are interwoven because once these three are tackled, it would result in multiplier effects.

“If you tackle corruption, you would save money to plough into the system to jump start the economy.

“Once you are able to plough the money into manufacturing, into agriculture, into mineral resources, you would create employment for the people.

“Youth employment would be reduced, once you create a conducive environment, investors can come and invest.”

Also speaking with NAN, Sen. Hariat Gwadebe, a former senator representing the FCT, said that the organisation of the programme, which was orderly, was a good indicator as to what Nigerians should expect from the new government.

She urged the Buhari administration to ensure rule of law, discipline, and a corrupt-free system.

On his part, Sen. Bukola Saraki said that the celebration was not just for the APC but for all, as every Nigerian contributed to making the change a reality.

He said that the Buhari administration would be a people’s government and pledged to contribute his own quota in the success of the administration.

Saraki urged Nigerians to support the new administration so that Nigeria could regain its rightful place in the commity of nations.

Mr Behgjet Pacolli, former President of Kosovo, told NAN that the legacy set by Nigeria, through the transition and inauguration of a new president, was a model for oher countries to emulate.

Pacoli said that former President Goodluck Jonathan had made a name in Nigeria’s history by ensuring a free and fair election and for conceding defeat.
