The All Progressives Congress Presidential Candidate, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, in Port Harcourt on Thursday promised that his administration would use the nation’s gas resources to generate electricity.
Mr. Buhari made the pledge at the APC South-South campaign rally, saying that if properly utilised, the sector would expand the economy and open other ventures that would be useful to the people.
“We need high technology to separate our gas because ours is associated gas. When we do this, we will have enough gas to generate power and expand our economy”, he said.
Mr. Buhari urged the people to join in the fight against corruption by protecting their votes.
He said, “If you work hard to stop corruption at the polling units by voting for the APC, I can say that you are not doing me good but you will be doing yourself good”.
Mr. Buhari called for a comprehensive approach in the fight against corruption in the country, adding: “Nigerians must rise up to fight and kill corruption before it kills us”.
In his speech, Rivers Governor, Chibuike Amaechi, urged supporters of the party to vote for a change in the Presidential and Governorship elections.
He also urged the people to use the power of their votes to elect candidates of their choice.
Mr. Amaechi said the decision by INEC to use card readers for the elections was a welcome development.
“Majority of Nigerians must be allowed to vote and what INEC is doing now is better than in the past”, he said.
A former governor of Bayelsa, Timipre Silva, urged the people to vote for APC to enjoy democracy dividends.
