Pretoria - An APC chieftain in South Africa, Chief Chuks Okoye, on Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari has the potential to make Nigeria regain her lost glory.
Okoye, who is the Chairman of the National Elders Forum of the APC in South Africa, revealed in Pretoria, South Africa, that Buhari would bring significant change to move the country forward.
"This task cannot be achieved in one day. But with time, Nigerians will see the difference and style of leadership Buhari will bring to the country.
