The South West Director-General of the Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation, Chief Olusola Oke (SAN), on Friday declared that President Muhammadu Buhari inherited what he described as a ‘decadent system’ from his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan when he assumed office in 2015.
Oke made this declaration while addressing journalists at a press conference held in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital after the organisation’s meeting.
The APC chieftain while speaking, said that the organisation would run issue-based campaign across the south west, saying the region’s hope and strength lie in the APC.
He also pledged the organisation’s readiness to campaign vigorously for President Muhammadu Buhari in the region.
Oke said, “The south west is very unique and significant in this transition and those who cares know that the region has never had it so good like this. APC is our hope and strength in the south west. We are going to kick-start our campaign very soon and it is going to be a whirlwind,” he said.
Oke said that the Buhari administration had in the last three and a half years laid solid foundation for the building of a super structure.
He said that the efforts of the administration had secured the confidence of international communities as well as investment for Nigeria.
Oke said, “The damage of the past is not what can be repaired overnight. Buhari inherited a system that is decadent. There was total decay in infrastructure, psyche and orientation. Today, we are fixing the economy, it may not be clearly seen but the economy is growing. Buhari had since assumption of office been laying solid foundation for national growth and development.
“The nation has gained the confidence of international communities with these efforts. This why he deserves our support to lead Nigeria to the next level,” he said.
Oke lamented that successive administrations in the country lacked integrity until the assumption of Buhari, whose integrity is internationally recognized.
He said that no nation could progress with grand corruption, massive treasury looting and infrastructural decay.
“The anti-corruption crusade is already going into the psyche of everybody. Anybody, no matter how daring today will think twice before looting the treasury because the mention of Buhari’s name.”
Oke assured Nigerians that the economy was been fixed, anti-corruption crusade ongoing and vital infrastructure is been put in place.
He said that the campaign committee would roll out the time table for the presidential campaign in the region next week, saying the campaign will be carried out within two weeks.
