The Nigeria Diaspora for Asiwaju (NDA) says sustaining legacies of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration lies with delegates to the party’s presidential primaries.

Ayobami Oyalowo, the NDA national spokesperson, said this in an open letter to delegates to the party’s presidential primary election slated from May 30 to June 1, saying that Nigeria had begun a march again to greatness.

“We appeal to you as delegates in all good conscience to decide and define the future for Nigerians by voting to ensure that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu emerges as APC presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election,” said Mr Oyalowo.

According to him, party members and delegates to APC’s forthcoming presidential primaries are responsible for ensuring the legacies of the Buhari administration were sustained and improvements made where necessary.

“The APC will embark on its presidential primary election in a matter of weeks to elect a candidate that is worthy and versatile enough to emerge victorious come 2023 and to consolidate on the party’s achievements,” he explained. “The future, therefore, lies on your shoulders as delegates to our party’s coming presidential primaries.”

Mr Oyalowo explained that the decision of over 7,800 delegates expected at the APC presidential primary would ensure continuity of the ruling party, particularly at the federal level.

He said their decision could also truncate the current developmental strides of Mr Buhari’s regime, charging the delegates to see themselves as nationalists who want the best for their fatherland.

“It is either we decide a future of economic prosperity, financial re-engineering, human capital development and social inclusivity in an Asiwaju presidency or we define a future of constant blame ringing with tales of woe,” he further urged the delegates.
