He said APC Diaspora wholeheartedly approved the able
leadership of the committee.
John hailed the role played by Nigerians in the Diaspora
during the election on March 29/30.
“The role of Diaspora Nigerians came to lime light most
especially at 2015 polls, for its remarkable and outstanding involvement from
start to finish. Aggressively campaigned in a timely manner, consistently
mounted national and international pressure, enabled power shift to APC.
Invariably, APC campaigns can be compared to the likes of
US President Barak Obama.”
John said the poll outcome was well-received among
Nigerians in the Diaspora.
“Amazed Diaspora supporting this change are going home in
mass to witness the historic change of baton. They are not only confident at
the incoming administrations capabilities but cautions political jugglers and
party defectors and the need to review acceptance rules.”
Buhari will be sworn in on May 29.
