LOKOJA – Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has reiterated the determination of the people of the state and Nigerians in general to ensure President Muhammadu Buhari continues at the Presidency beyond 2019.
Bello said Buhari remains the unbeatable candidate for the APC and must be elected to continue his good works for the country.
“We are a Democratic Party who will do everything within the ambience of the rule of law. But we cannot forget that our party has the most respected, the most popular and the most incorrigible material in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“All over the world, his name represents anti-corruption, transparency and good governance. We cannot jettison such a global brand.
“It is true that many people are concerned about his health. President Buhari is now fit to continue to unsettle the forces of corruption who think four years are enough for people to forget the pains their corruption brought on our people.
“People who love Nigeria will definitely want Mr. President to continue. His second term will help strengthen our institutions of governance and assure our nation of a greater tomorrow“.
Bello who stated this through a statement by his Director General, Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo urged APC leaders to speak with one voice and remain united in order to continue to push the nation toward greatness, “Ambitions are normal in politics. But the Nigerian project is far more important than the interest of individuals. Our party leaders will continue to act in unison for the prosperity of Nigeria”.
The Governor also called for understanding over the President’s call for development attention in the North-East, said it is a normal post -war advocacy, “The insurgency and the war against the enemies of our nation really devastated the North-East. A good number of schools and other public institutions were destroyed. It is therefore not out of place for the President to call on the World Bank to help rebuild the battered region.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is not a sectional leader. He would have done same for any battered region in Nigeria. Leaders of influence must continue to promote speeches that will enhance our unity rather than divide us.”
