The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated this in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.
He said ”President Muhammadu Buhari in particular, is very pleased with the bye-elections outcomes” and had urged the ruling party to sustain the spirit of ”hard work, unity, progress, cooperation that form the bedrock of these victories.”
According to Shehu, the results of the by-elections, which took place in several states showed that the APC remained Nigerians’ choice.

”We do not take this confidence of the people for granted and we will not fail them.
