President Muhammadu Buhari says he is expecting millions of Nigerians from all parts of the country to join the All Progressives Congress (APC) in few months’ time.
President Buhari stated this in his letter dated January 25, 2018 and sent to Senator Basheer Mohammed Lado who recently defected to the APC in Kano State.
Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, yesterday posted a copy of the letter entitled “Re: Declaration for APC” on his Twitter handle, @BashirAhmaad.
The letter, signed by the president, read: “I was most delighted to receive your letter informing me of your impending decision to formally declare for our great party, APC.
“Furthermore, I am very encouraged to learn that you are bringing thousands of new supporters into the fold.
“We are expecting millions to join us in the next few months from all parts of the country.
“I would have very much welcomed another opportunity to be in Kano but due to a conflict of engagements, I am due on that day in Addis Ababa for an important African Union meeting which was scheduled months ago.
“I hope I shall have the pleasure of welcoming you to the Presidential Villa in the near future. I wish the event turns out to be a resounding success.”
Senator Lado and 116,000 of his supporters who dumped the PDP at the weekend were officially received by the Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, at a special reception held at the Sani Abacha Indoor Stadium on Saturday.
