The group made this known in a statement jointly signed by its chairman, Niyi Akinsiju, and secretary, Cassidy Madueke, on Tuesday, February 5, in Abuja, News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The campaign group said the endorsement came from real people whose lives were touched by the three-pronged programme of the Buhari-led administration.

It said: “Perhaps more instructive is the endorsement by the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), a group that has membership spread across the country."
