Buhari Appeals To APC Presidential Primary Delegates: All I Can Offer Is My All, Not Money


Frontiline All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, today appealed to the sense of patriotism of delegates to the party convention in Lagos, which will determine the choice of flagbearer at next February’s election. 
He told them in a letter he had no money with which to motivate them, and even if he had, would not give them because the fate of Nigeria is not up for sale.
“I can’t give you a pocketful of dollars or naira to purchase your support,” he stated.
“I seek to be the next president of our beloved nation because I believe I have something to offer Nigeria at this time of multiple crises. Insecurity, corruption, and economic collapse have brought the nation low. Time is past due that we work together to lift Nigeria up. I am ready to lead Nigeria to its rightful future.”

He reminded them he has always served Nigeria to the best of his ability, and tried to give more to the nation than it has given him.  
“This is the principle of service that has guided my public life,” he said, adding that he is not a rich person.  
“What I will give you, and this nation is all of my strength, commitment, sweat and toil in the service of the people.  What I can give you is my all.”
He called on the delegates to remember that history, change and the hopes of Nigeria are at the convention with them.  “They are there to ask you to perform according to your best judgment and patriotic conscience,” he said.  “I also ask you to do the same.”
