The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa state, on Wednesday said it was ready to host its presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, and his campaign team in Yenagoa on Thursday.

He urged Bayelsa people to be of good conduct during the rally as every effort had been made to ensure its success.

Fortune appealed to the people of the state to come out en masse to welcome the APC flagbearer to the state. Bayelsa is President Goodluck Jonathan’s home state.

Meanwhile at a campaign in Calabar today, Gen. Muhammad Buhari promised to use the non-oil sector to boost Nigeria’s economy, if elected.

“Our main objective is to make sure that agriculture and other non-oil sector get priority to give opportunities to every Nigerian so that Nigerians, whether educated or not, will have gainful employment,’’ he said.

Buhari said his administration would also restore the lost glory of education and address the problem of power supply to resuscitate ailing industries in the country.

“Unless we get power supply correct, our industries cannot survive, so we must resuscitate our industries and get Nigeria going again,’’ he said.

The candidate urged his supporters to be vigilant during the elections to ensure victory for the party.

Gov. Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers described Buhari as a credible candidate and urged the people of Cross River to vote for him.

Amaechi said an APC government under Buhari would rehabilitate all federal roads in the state, including the Calabar-Itu and Calabar-Ikom-Ogoja roads.

The National Chairman of the party, Dr Odigie Oyegun, said an APC administration would provide Jobs for three million Nigerians in the first four years.

He later handed over the party’s flag to the Gubernatorial Candidate of the party in the state, Mr Odey Ochicha.

Oyegun also received three members of the State House of Assembly who defected to APC from the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

He described the defectors as courageous and assured them of victory on the platform of APC.
