National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has spoken on the Buhari led government.
He stated that the party has proven that it was for the common man.
Tinubu said this while speaking with newsmen in Lagos on Friday after a Prayer Programme organised by Islamic and Christian clerics to mark his 67th birthday.
“You will think that APC had been on for twenty years but is not up to six years.
“We went through compromises because we know that if we form a good alliance of progressive thinkers and believers in the ideology of common man, we will be able to serve the people.
“It is not by criticism alone. You have to have the opportunity to even change the life of the people and quality of their standard of living.
“So, we stood by it, we persevered persistently, uttered our voice, offered our recommendations, and then we are here. And today I am extremely happy that we are in government for the common man.
“The only way to change Nigeria from penury is to fashion out our own organic economic strategy and plan that will continue to cater for all,” he said.
