Campaigns for the 2019 presidential election formally opened, with President Muhammadu Buhari launching the All Progressives Congress, APC, Road Map.
The road map is tagged “NEXT LEVEL.”
In accordance with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s regulation, campaigns for the 2019 elections officially kicked off on Sunday.
Buhari at the unveiling of his campaign at a well attended launch in the presidential villa vowed to take the country to the next level against the background of what was claimed as 16 years of waste under the PDP.
He was immediately countered by Atiku who declared Buhari’s Next Level theme as a new level of propaganda, saying that the administration had failed in its three key promises to enhance security, employment and anti-corruption.
President Buhari at the flag-off of the campaign observed that education remained his biggest ambition in sight, but nevertheless acknowledged challenges, notably the farmers-herders clashes which he said have been aggravated by struggle for land, climate change among other issues, which he said were worsened through cynical manipulation by the political class.
Yesterday’s formal campaign flag-off by the President took place at the Presidential Villa and was witnessed by leaders of the APC, including governors, ministers, and senior government officials.
