- The Buhari's media organization has unveiled its new logo ahead of 2019 elections
- President Buhari had on Monday, April 9, made public his intention to seek re-election in 2019
- A former minister of information and communication, Ibrahim Nakande, said while unveiling the logo said that they would soon begin to showcase the president's achievements
The Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) has transmuted into the Buhari Media Organization (BMO) with greater focus on resetting the tone of political conversation in the country ahead of 2019 general elections.
Vanguard reports that while unveiling the new name and logo at a media parley on Friday, April 20, in Abuja, a former minister of information and communication, Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki Nakande noted that, “for too long, we have allowed the opposition to take control of the media space while we will now be reacting."
He said the Buhari administration has a lot of masses oriented programmes and policies which must be publicised for Nigerians to understand the trajectory of the administration.
“Our job is not against anybody but about how to move the nation forward. In a football match, you have the supporters club whose job ends as the game ends.
"So, we thought it fit to metamorphose into an organization that will be most enduring and serve as a catalyst for development. The idea is to bring together all groups that have been supporting the president in this sector so that we can have an all encompassing organization”, he said.
Earlier, the coordinator of the BMO, Austin Braimoh, said the organization has been able to do a self evaluation and identified its shortcomings with a view to enhancing the electoral fortunes of the president at the next general elections.
