Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has stated that Nigerians will re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019 because of their confidence in his capacity to deepen good governance and transparency in the country.
The governor’s take was given by the Director General on Media and Publicity to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo during an interview with some select international media.
“As far as we know, Nigerians are happy and satisfied with the performance of Mr. President. He is honest man who is trusted by the international community to take Nigeria to the promise land and will therefore be re-elected next year by the masses of this great nation,” he said.
“Those who love Nigeria and the strides of Mr President want him to continue the rebuilding process. Our nation was a subject of international scorn for corruption and insensitivity to the plight of the masses. Today, the respect is back because of the personality of Mr President.
“Our economy is looking up and it is trickling down to the states. Kogi State has keyed into the agricultural policies of the Federal Government to create more jobs and wealth. Our youth and vibrant populace now see a career in agriculture.
“The Federal Government has been very supportive of our war against criminality in the state; the same way the war against insurgency has been waged with serious mindedness.”
“Nigerians surely do not want the gains of this administration reversed.”
Buhari returns to the country today after a 10-day trip to the UK for his annual vacation.
