- An APC chieftain has called on Nigerians to give massive support to President Buhari in the elections
- According to Chief Biodun Akinfasae, Buhari deserves a re-election because he has organised many poverty alleviating programmes to help the masses
- Akinfasae also said the president who has zero tolerance for corruption would not stop prosecuting corrupt politicians
Chief Biodun Akinfasae, a leader in the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday, February 13, begged Nigerians to massively vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the coming elections on Saturday, February 16.
Akinfasae, who is also the secretary of the presidential campaign council in the Ekiti state made the plea when speaking with newsmen in the state, Vanguard reports.
He mentioned that Buhari has a strong determination to revive the country corrupt practices, especially from people who had looted the nation.
The secretary also said Buhari introduced many economic empowerment programmes in order to deal with poverty and create more job opportunities for everybody, especially women, youths and artisans.
He said: “I wish to say that Buhari administration is the very first government since 1991, where priority is given to the welfare of Nigerians and corrupt leaders and politicians arrested and prosecuted according to the law.
“Buhari is determined to create wealth and jobs for all Nigerians at all levels, that is why his administration introduced N-Power, traders moni, money market and scholarship programmes. He is passionate about the welfare of both civil servants and public servants and he is ready to approve the minimum wage, if he can be re-elected to continue his good works."
Akinfasae also added that the president does not have any tolerance for corruption and that is the sole reason why he has been going after corrupt politicians.
In his words: “Buhari is not a corrupt leader and does not encourage fraud, this is the more reason why he has been prosecuting corrupt politicians, even public office holders recently.
“I wish to advise Nigerians to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday because he is the only solution to the problems facing us in Nigeria.”
