The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his showing after APC’s victory.
“President Jonathan has been wonderful. By what he has done today, he has contributed immensely to laying the foundation for a new Nigeria,” he said.
He added that “the president that we are giving the country is the president of everybody. It will be a government without any discrimination, religion or tribe.”
Also speaking with newsmen at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, declared that “the mood is that of thanksgiving to God and, of course, we are all happy with what is happening in the country.”
Another national leader of the party, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu, said “we all know that Nigerians want change and we are happy that the change has come.
“For the party, we feel happy that Nigerians have accepted us and are giving us the opportunity to govern and we are going to show Nigerians that many of the problems that have remained intractable will be solved.”
