Some families in Abuja have taken the streets in a rally to create awareness for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming 2019 presidential election.
The families comprising mostly of women said they were using the rally to all register their total allegiances for the re-election of President Buhari come February 2019.
The group of families under the aegis of Advocacy Crusade March for the re-election of President Buhari trekked from AYA to the Unity Fountain and later the presidential villa on Wednesday, January 9, chanting ‘Sai Baba'.
Some of them also carried various banners with photographs of the president alongside his vice Yemi Osinbajo.
Speaking during the rally, the convener of the group, Ajibola Princess, said Nigeria has suffered all kinds of political vices in the past ranging from consuming insecurity, shameful depravities and underdevelopment.
Princess however said that, the leadership of president Buhari, however, there's been a paradigm shift.
She said: “The office of the President of Nigeria is very important in defining the tone of leadership and enhancing good governance down the lower rungs of leadership. So, we cannot afford to be passive onlookers in deciding who occupies the apex leadership office in the land."
“The ‘5,000 Families For Buhari 2019,’ is drawn across Nigeria. It is not subject to regional, religious, or ethnic biases or persuasions, but women who are united by a common agenda and target. We are concerned about the future and progress of Nigeria as well as the prosperity of our children, yet unborn.
“We have seen the resurgence of perpetual presidential contestants, who have invaded the democratic space seeking our mandate to become Nigeria’s President this year.
“We do not find such candidates today, under whatever banner as trustworthy choices to lead Nigeria. They are not alternative presidential candidates, credible enough to challenge the retention of the incumbent President," Princess added.
