The APC presidential candidate said that  this is a critical time in the history of Nigeria as the next election will determine the future of Nigeria, adding that ensuring that PDP is voted out of power should be the collective interest of Nigerians.

While calling on Nigerians to take part in the polls, Buhari said: “The Igbo nation has been ruined for the past 16 years by the PDP.  We must not allow PDP to rule this country for 20 years. If We do that it will be very disastrous for the country. We are here to restore this nation. So all of us most collectively vote PDP out of Government in this election.

He said the Ibos have been supporting past Presidents that have ruled the country, but lamented that nobody has ever supported them in their quest of becoming the president of the country.
