When you emerged the presidential candidate of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), I had no doubt about your ability to lead our party to our third triumph at the presidency because of your pedigree and intimidating track record.

Your conquest is an attestation that majority of Nigerians believe in the milestones you achieved in Lagos State from 1999 to 2007, and your immense contributions to our democracy over the years.

This victory is very important to Rivers State APC because our state is among the states you won convincingly; this shows that our party is fully on ground in the state.

– Tonye Cole, mni.
