With less than one month to the presidential election, an independent campaign platform which cuts across party, civil society groups, ethnic and religious leanings has unveiled its plans to embark on massive grassroots campaign for President Muhammadu Buhari.
This was made known in a press briefing held in Abuja by Alhaji Abdulkarim Dayyabu, alongisde Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara state who is the chairman of the group.
The group known as Forward With Buhari, says President Muhammadu Buhari remains the best man for the job of moving Nigeria forward.
They say he has demonstrated what he understands as what must be done to fix Nigeria for the ordinary citizens to enjoy, instead of what held in the past where the majority Nigerians live in abject poverty, while a very few enjoyed the commonwealth.
“Today, we have come together, to tell the world, of our determination, to sustain the on-going socio political and economic revolution that is presently moving our country Nigeria, to forward with Buhari to the next level,” the group said.
The group added: “Our choices will shape, our economic security and our future prosperity. Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focused government to move the agenda for our country forward.
“Four years ago, President Buhari promised Nigerians real change in what we do and how we do it. He has worked hard to fulfill these promises and while the road may have been difficult, over the last three and half years, he has laid a solid foundation for a strong, stable and prosperous country for the majority of our people.”
The group said they are coming together to galvanize the support of all well-meaning Nigerians, to continue to build a country that represents shared aspiration, and belongs to all, irrespective of economic or social status.
The Forward With Buhari group added that Nigerians are now confronted with an opportunity to decide on whether to move backward, or endure and sustain the momentum that has already started making impact.
According to the group, “the February 16 election is about which candidate will sustain the war against corruption. It is about a government that will invest in our education, a government that will secure our country from internal and external aggression, a government that will empower our rural dwellers, a government that shares the aspiration of our people irrespective of their religions or tribes, a government with human face and that will provide a more united nation.”
Meanwhile, a civil society organisation, Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES), has launched a campaign against violence as Nigeria prepares for the 2019 general elections scheduled for February 16 and March 2.
The campaign tagged 'I Stand 4 Peace' is geared towards raising awareness that will engender peace, before, during and after elections.
Speaking at a press briefing/media launch of the campaign on Monday, January 21, Oche-Precious Edeh, the convener of the group, said YES will collaborate with other groups to embark on campaign tour of the country during the campaign.
