Leaders of the United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ade Omole, has called on the international community to support the 2019 re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure consolidation and continuity.
Omole made the call in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday, October 4, in Abuja.
Legit.ng gathers that he said he would be presenting a paper at the British House of Parliament on October 26 to showcase the achievements of the Buhari-led administration that would convince the international community and organisations.
According to him, Buhari is better placed to deliver and consolidate on his developmental strides than a change in government at this moment of Nigeria’s political history. He said that because of his antecedent, Nigerians were not in doubt of Buhari's ability to pass the integrity and anti-corruption test.
Omole said that beyond the fact that President Buhari was rebuilding Nigeria`s economy and fighting corruption head-on, he had eloquently acquitted himself as a true democrat and a believer in democratic tenets.
He noted that the president’s relationship with international communities and his official visit to some countries, was already yielding positive results for Nigerians, and should be consolidated on.
Omole added that the Buhari administration initiated the Social Investment Programmes (SIP) that was touching the lives of poor Nigerian directly, citing the CCT, Npower, NHGSFP and GEEP as examples.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Ade Omole, a leader of the United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that Olusegun Obasanjo's criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari should not be taken seriously.
He made this statement on Tuesday, May 29 in Abuja while reacting to Obasanjo’s accusation of the president and the ruling APC government as "underperforming".
Omole said Obasanjo's criticism of Buhari was full of contradictions when critically examined, adding that the former president’s campaign was all about power struggle.
