He said: “For me, such report is a mere political strategy to weaken the Buhari’s support in the southeast. If our people fail to give massive votes to the president’s re-election, it will be used against our people in 2023.

“Our people should be concerned with what is before them now and that is, give massive support to Buhari’s re-election bid, because when we do that, it will enable us cross the 2023 political bridge with ease."

According to Gbujie, the Buhari/Osinbanjo 2019 Next Level, a privately funded group, has at least 200 members in each polling booth in Imo and other southeastern states.

He said: “The Buhari/Osinbanjo Next Level 2019 is a support group funded by private Nigerians who believe in the ideals of Mr President. We are of the view that Buhari has made landmark, remarkable and key achievements that if consolidated, will place the country on solid footing in the next couple of years."

The former governorship aspirant said that members of the group would soon begin door-to-door campaign to tell Nigerians things Buhari had achieved in his first tenure and things he intends to achieve if re-elected in 2019.

Gbujie said Buhari had done well in the fight against corruption and fight against insurgence in the northeast zone.

He added: “When Buhari took over, there were several ungovernable spaces in the North-East, but today, the insurgents are not in control of any area, that is better way to measure security success."

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 for the zone in the areas of road constructions linking all the six states and the fight against insurgency which “has improved greatly” the security of lives and property in the sub-region.
