Buhari, who was very excited during the occasion, thanked Nigerians for the solidarity and support he has enjoyed all this while and promised to offer the desired leadership, if he eventually emerges winner at both the party's primaries and the 2011 general elections.
He assured party members that 'victory definitely is ours', but emphasized on the need to protect votes if this dream will be transformed into reality. In his remark, National Chairman of the CPC, Sen. Rufai Hanga, assured of the party's preparedness to go into the election with its eyes wide open, pointing out that the party will never fold its arms again and watch anybody cheat Nigerians at any election.
