Muya said: “We have gone through the allegations against Buhari and found out they are untrue. In case you were told that Buhari is an extremist, our finding and research has proven it wrong, that is why we are endorsing him for a second term."
According to the group, Buhari is the only president in Nigeria that continues with the 95 per cent abandoned projects of a previous administration.
Muya continued: “Today, we have seen a man who has been accused without proof. We are here to tell Nigerians that Buhari is a good leader, worthy leader and never had anything against Christians and Christianity. We endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari’s second tenure and we must stand and protect our votes."
