The national coordinator of the coalition, Agbaminoja Olatunji George, who made this known during a press briefing on Friday, September 15 in Abuja, opined that Buhari deserved a second term of office.

His words: “I don't want to talk about politics now but Buhari remains the best candidate for the APC. The future belongs to God and it's God that make kings. Of course, if he decides to run, we will support him.

“The corruption that he is fighting tooth and nail will help to propel this country to its past glory. Nigerians voted the previous government out because of suffering. The country was in a recession.

“After few months, this man (Buhari) led us out of recession. He is not even proud of it. He is still saying that the common man should feel they have stomach infrastructure. Is that a leader not worth fighting for?

“You have a leader that is not stealing money, you have a leader that the ministers are not living flamboyantly, you can see the television that he watched recently, it's the same television I use in my house.”

Similarly, the deputy director of media, Buhari Campaign Organisation, Mr Ayo Oyalowo, has stated that Nigerians are lucky to have President Buhari as their leader presently.

Oyalowo, who is also a member of the APC and a popular social media influencer, made the statement on a political programme aired on Channels Television on Sunday, September 11.

“I think he (Buhari) is a good person, I think he’s honest, I think Nigeria is blessed and lucky to have him as president.

“From 2011 I have been with the man, I supported him in 2011. I’m very happy that he finally got it in 2015 and if God wills and he wants to do it again, I will gladly support him,” Oyalowo declared.
