Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, has described the current political happenings in Nigeria as a battle between the good and bad elements whose aim was to continue suffocating the nation by milking it dry.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, Osinbajo said that the Federal Government “would not compromise” in the ongoing war against corruption and protection of national interest.
Osinbajo made the declaration in Daura on Thursday while addressing thousands of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists at a campaign rally for Saturday’s Katsina north senatorial district bye-election.
He reeled out the achievements of the administration which focused on transforming the nation’s infrastructure like roads, rail lines, agriculture, education, health, security and the fight against corruption.
“We will not relent,” he said, adding that no amount of blackmail will stop the government.
He used the occasion to call on the electorate in Daura North senatorial district to vote for the APC, noting that the election was necessitated by the death of the senator for the area, late Mustafa Bukar.
Also, Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje who spoke on behalf of the Northwest governors, described the bye-election as a testing ground, preparatory to the 2019 general elections and called on the electorate to use their votes wisely.
APC National Chairman, Mr Adams Oshimhole called on the electorates to vote for the APC and shun financial inducements.
