Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, has appealed to Nigerians to re-elected President Buhari in 2019. In a statement released by his director General on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, Governor Bello said the re-election of President Buhari in 2019 is in “the best interest of Nigerians”. According
to the governor, it is taking a lot of efforts to “rescue the country from the deep pit of economic mess” which previous administrations put it.
The statement reads: “We were here during the previous administration, and we saw what our country went through. Revelations in courts and from anti-graft agencies have shown us how bad the country was exposed to economic woes. President Muhammadu Buhari came and has continued to do his best to sanitise the country and relaunch it on the map of international reckoning. It takes more time to rebuild than to destroy. For our President to have achieved this much is magical and laudable. In the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians, President Buhari should continue to lead our country beyond 2019”. The governor added that with the visible progress Nigeria has made in recent times, President Buhari will easily win in the 2019 election. “Nigerians have continued to show their solidarity with the President. He will easily win again in 2019”. Governor Bello said those opposed to President Buhari’s re-election were only exercising their fundamental right to freedom of expression and are not necessarily speaking the minds of millions of Nigerians who were at the receiving end of bad governance, corruption and terrorism before the rescue mission of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Governor Bello and six other APC governors, visited President Buhari on January 12th at the state house to urge him to seek a second term.
