The reelection campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari is getting a lot of boost as people in all sectors show their support for the President in their different capacities.
Impressive donations to Buhari's presidential campaign
A stalwart of the All Progressive People’s Party (APC) in Niger State pledged his allegiance to the number one citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by donating a campaign secretariat and 100 vehicles to enhance the actualization of the President’s political ambition.
The donor who was identified as Mohammed Musa, and popularly called Sani 313, donated a three-storey building in addition to the vehicles for campaign movements. An event for the donation was among the many activities organized to take place while the President was on a visit to Niger State. But it had to be scheduled as a result of the very busy schedule of Mr. President.
Standing in for President Buhari, Governor of the state Abubakar Sani Bello received the donations on his behalf. The Governor expressed his appreciation to Mohammed Musa. He also urged the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) and the Buhari Support Organizations (BSO) to put the resources to good use for the President’s reelection bid.
The stalwart is such a rare loyal and generous individual to Mr. President
Speaking at the event, Musa said he was happy to support the President for his exemplary leadership and zeal toward building the nation.
On a similar note, a Monarch in Anambra State, His Royal Highness Igwe Dennis Ezebuilo, made a donation of a Toyota Hilux as part of his support to the President’s reelection campaign. This was done in appreciation of the good works Buhari has done since he came into office.
Speaking on the President’s performance, the Monarch said he had performed very well in regard to transport and economy, infrastructure and anti-corruption. Igwe Dennis Ezebuilo made his donation in Abuja on January 19, 2019.
According to reports by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), His Royal Highness attributed his donation to the outstanding leadership of the President since getting into office. Speaking at the occasion, the traditional ruler called on Nigerians to support the President massively in his fight against corruption. He acknowledged that the President had prosecuted several corrupt public officers, allowing the law to take its course and recovering stolen funds. He commended the President on his Whistle Blower policy, which has motivated Nigerians to expose public officers who have looted funds. Keeping the policy ongoing would lead to the recovery of more stolen public funds, the Igwe added.
Receiving the donation of His Royal Highness at the Abuja office of the Buhari/Osinbajo campaign, the director, Mahmoud Mohammed, commended him for the gesture, and gave him the assurance that the vehicle would be used for the purpose it was donated for.
Buhari and Atiku are competing tightly for the General Elections next month
About the presidential election
The General Elections in Nigeria will be held on February 16, 2019. It’ll be the sixth democratic elections to be conducted in the country since May 1999. Top on the list that day is the Presidential Election.
Although there are other contestants from the 73 political parties running for the Office of the President, the two major frontrunners are the current president Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive People’s Party (APC) and Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Unlike the 2015 presidential election where religion and region were determining factors as Muhammadu Buhari contested against Goodluck Jonathan, this time, both candidates are from the same region and are of the same religion. These will make the election even more competitive as people from the Northern Region will have divided votes.
Listen to Nigerians' opinions on who they would vote in 2019!
Nigerians have different opinions in regard to their preferred candidate. With Buhari and Atiku being very popular among the masses in all regions of the federation, the forthcoming elections will be fiercely contested.
