Buhari’s Support Group Pledges to Mobilise Support
On Friday, the National Committee of the Buhari Support Group, (NCBSG) led by Senator Abu Ibrahim, visited President Muhammed Buhari at the State House and promised him to “strive and mobilise young Nigerians to become drivers of the CHANGE administration’s programmes and achievements”.
The group assured the Nigeria’s President, Buhari, that they had a massive, diverse, grassroots base, which would enable them deliver on the support agenda.
This is contained in Press Statement on Friday by President’s spokesman, Femi Adeshina.
Muhammadu Buhari commended the support groups working for the progress of his administration, saying posterity will reward their sacrifices for the peace, progress and prosperity of the nation.
Receiving members of the group, President Buhari assured them of the judicious use of available national resources for the betterment of all Nigerians.
”I am grateful for your sacrifices. Your work requires a lot of sacrifices both physical and material.
”I do not think anybody will join this organisation for material reasons.
”What you are doing is for the nation and not for me as an individual. Therefore, there is no way you can lose because what you are doing is for posterity,’’ the statement said.
Adeshina said the group apprised the President of their activities, and stated that they would continue to engage in the production of detailed sector-specific documentaries, programmes, policies and achievements of the administration.
It is not clear yet whether the President would seek re-election in Nigeria’s general election in 2019. Neither Buhari nor his political party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) has made a categorical statement on that. What is clear however, is that some of Buhari’s supporters, including former and serving governors are already prodding the 74-year-old retired Military General to seek re-election. This newspaper learnt that the visit of the Buhari support group today might not be far from this.
