One of the signs that President Muhammadu Buhari will seek a second term in office played out yesterday with the commissioning of an office of a Buhari support group, Council For New Nigeria, in Warri, Delta State.
The imposing building, accommodating the Council for New Nigeria, was commissioned by Senator Ita Enang, Special Adviser to President Buhari on Legislatives Matters and assisted by Chairman, Board of Trustee (BOT) National Committee of Buhari Support Groups, Senator Abu Ibrahim.
Addressing hundreds of supporters that thronged the venue, Senator Enang reeled out the achievements of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the past three years under President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said President Buhari had succeeded in tackling the hydra-headed monster of corruption, as well as turning the economy around, with his various policies; noting that his achievement on area of agriculture is obvious to Nigerians.
Senator Enang said government meant well with the introduction of ranching in states but that opposition politicians were the ones kicking against the policy to derail the plan and put government in bad light.
Chairman BOT of National Committee of Buhari Support Groups (NCBSG), Senator Abu Ibrahim commended Council of New Nigeria for opening the office in support of the re-election of President Buhari in 2019.
He acknowledged that the Council of New Nigeria is the first of over 200 Buhari Support Groups under NCBSG that will open an office for its operations to garner support for President Buhari and commended the leadership of the group led by Chief Emma Aworoh.
National Chairman and Secretary of NCBSG, Alhaji Mustapha and Otunba Biodun Ajiboye urged supporters of President Buhari not to be brain washed by the antics and blackmails from the opposition but instead go all out to enlighten others on achievements of President Buhari and the need to re-elect him.
Delta State Coordinator of Council of New Nigeria, Chief Emma Aworoh said the group was established to support President Buhari because of its belief in fighting corruption, good governance and empowerment of the people.
He expressed appreciation to the leadership of NCBSG and the Legislative aide to President Buhari noting that their presence at the commissioning of Council of New Nigeria is a manifestation of their support for the group.
