Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), on Monday pledged to bring about positive change in Nigeria within two years in office, if elected.
Buhari, who made the pledge while addressing his supporters in Kaduna, said the APC administration would reverse the current state of economy, insecurity, unemployment and corruption in the country.
“We pledge to you, that if given the mandate, we will bring about positive changes in the lives of Nigerians within two years”, he said.
“Our desire for change has not diminished, that was why in all the elections we participated we never asked people to take the law into their hands.
“We have always pursued our grievances over the elections at the tribunal.
“I believe in democratic governance, and as long as I am alive, I shall continue to struggle for the good of all Nigerians”, he said.
He said that APC was not unmindful of pervasive unemployment in the country due to negative economic policies that led to closure of industries.
The APC presidential candidate also pledged to revitalise the education sector, provide functional health care services and revitalise national infrastructure, if elected.
Buhari urged eligible voters to obtain their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to enable them exercise their franchise.
He also advised them to shun violence but ensure that their votes count.
