A political group, Buhari/Osinbajo Mandate Group (BOMG) vowed on Sunday, October 14, that no amount of unnecessary distraction from the opposition can stop President Muhammadu Buhari from winning his re-election bid in the 2019 presidential election.
The national coordinator of BOMG, Ali Baba Mohammed, said in a statement issued in Abuja, that, the current gang up against President Buhari will fail.
He said the president is the divine choice of God to rescue Nigeria from the hands of those who have held her prosperity and greatness to ransom, Vanguard reports.
Mohammed, who noted the country, has suffered in bondage over the years, said the corrupt elites are not happy with Buhari’s giant strides towards ensuring the complete liberating of the nation from their iron grip.
He said: “Today, Mr President is their enemy and the rest of the masses movement of the people of Nigeria are his friends and he is their hero.
“As far as Nigeria of today is concerned, there is hardly any political leader, past and present in Nigeria whose records of present and antecedents, could stand, match or displace that of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Hence, our insistence that he is still the best man for the job; the best that has happened to Nigeria and he is still what is right to continue to happen in political leadership and civil governance in Nigeria for the next four years.”
The national coordinator said the core mission of Buhari, which is total restoration of the country, must be accomplished and therefore called on Nigerians to continue to support him.
“We, therefore, make bold to say that Nigerians are wiser now and are more politically informed and enlightened, and so will not vote for the enemies of their country to come back to power again. They will not vote to collect their country from the hands of the hand of the current responsible leaders and give it back to those irresponsible ones they already know.
“Nigerians are unanimously set to prove it to the world that they know a responsible and visionary leader when they see one. And so, will not make the mistake of proving it to the world that it is a crime to be irresponsible leader in Nigeria,” he said.
Meanwhile we previously reported that the chairman of the Northern Elders Council,, said that the programmes put forward by President Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar would determine which of them the group would support in 2019.
The NEC chairman said it was premature to endorse any presidential candidate without knowing his or her manifesto.
Yakasai said: “In my opinion, this is not the appropriate time to start making decisions about where the votes will go. Neither of the two candidates has published a clear-cut manifesto or programmes. I am advising that people wait for the programmes put forward by the candidates before we make our final choice.”
