- The national coordinator of the Next Level Project, Umar Waziri Kumo, has expressed optimism that the northeast zone will vote for President Buhari in 2019
- The Next Level Project coordinator said the zone will support Buhari’s re-election due to the benefits it has enjoyed from the APC-led administration
- Amongst other things, Kumo said Buhari has done much to the zone in the areas of roads construction and the fight against insurgency
The national coordinator of the Next Level Project, a political campaign group of President Muhammadu Buhari, Umar Waziri Kumo, has stated that people of northeast would massively support the president’s second term bid due to his administration’s impacts on their lives.
Addressing journalists on Tuesday, December 25 after a town hall meeting with politicians and youths of the northeast held at Riveredge Hotel, Bauchi, Kumo, who is also a personal assistant to the president, said the federal government had done much to the zone in the areas of roads construction linking all the six states and the fight against insurgency which “has improved greatly” the security of lives and property in the sub-region.
According to ThisDay, Kumo said agriculture that has been the main occupation of people of the zone has also received a tremendous boost due to the commitment of the APC-led administration.
“This is evident in the boost in rice production and other staple foods that have almost made Nigeria a food-sufficient nation,” he said.
He expressed optimism that the President Buhari will win the entire northeast in the next election as “stakeholders had during the town hall meeting resolved to help the group in mobilising support for the re-election project of Buhari/Osinbajo in 2019.”
He said: “They also mentioned youths and women empowerment, the ongoing Mambila Hydroelectric power project and appointing key persons from the zone by the federal government into sensitive and important positions at the federal level, such as Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Comptroller General of Customs, SGF, NITDA DG as few examples of what Buhari did for Northeast.”
