The National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted insinuations that President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is too slow, stating that Nigerians should not expect the party administration to fix the 16-year-old problems caused by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in 30 days.

Tinubu said this in Abuja on Tuesday, July 14, at the Presidential villa where Buhari hosted members of the party to the breaking of fast.

He‎ described the APC as an Armoured Personnel Carrier, saying it represents the diversity of Nigeria.

He thanked President Buhari for bringing together people of various backgrounds, regardless of religious affiliations, to break the fast with him..

"We believe this diversity will continue to propel us to economic growth under your leadership,’’ he said.

In his remark, the President appealed to Nigerians, irrespective of their political or ethnic affiliations, to form a united front against corrupt practices in the society.

He also enjoined members of the APC to drop their differences or influence in order for the party to achieve its campaign promises to Nigerians.

According to him, the APC-led administration is determined to fulfill all the three basic promises of addressing security, economy/employment and corruption which it made in its manifesto.

"No matter the level you are, drop your influence so that we can help achieve the manifesto - security, economy, employment and corruption- because if we don't kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria.

"We have to ensure that people we bring forward are those that will move the society forward,’’ he said

President Buhari,‎ who narrated how the APC successfully defeated the PDP-led Federal Government in the March 28 presidential election, commended Tinubu for his support and words of encouragement.
