Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday promised to ensure to make the naira equal to the dollar in value, if voted into office.
Buhari said this during the south-east presidential rally of the party at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, Imo state.
NAN quotes him as saying:“It is sad that the value of the naira has dropped to more than N230 to one dollar. This does not speak well for the nation’s economy”.
He promised to ensure that corruption is tackled headlong if he is elected by people.
Earlier, the Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Okorocha, had urged APC supporters to vote for the party’s candidates at all levels, noting that a vote for Buhari without support to others at the state would amount to nothing.
He said that Buhari was loved by the people in the region and urged them to elect him and other APC candidates during the March 28 and April 11 general election.
Former Governor of Anambra, Dr. Chinwoke Mbadinuju, and Chinwe Obaji, former Minister of Education, were formally welcomed to the APC at the rally.
The rally was attended by APC supporters from Abia, Ebonyi, Anambra, Enugu and Imo States.
