A group, Forum for the Patriotic Members of APC ((FOPMAPC), has thrown their support to the recent declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari to seek second term in office in the face of mounting pressures from his detractors as the usual courage by the President and hope revitalised for the electorate.
National Publicity Secretary of the Forum, Engr. Ibrahim Baba Bashar, said Buhari’s declaration of intention to seek second term in office is good for Nigerians because the constitutional first four-year term couldn’t be enough to carry out all the impactful capital developments in agriculture, power, transportation and a host of other relevant projects that will create employment and help mop up the army of unemployed youths in the country.
“The federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari is putting in place apparatus that will lift Nigeria from the doldrums of infrastructural underdevelopment and the grip of corruption,” he said. He advised Nigerian masses not to be discouraged by the present hardship which was caused by the PDP’s years of maladministration and palace corruption. rruption. “Whenever there is a change in the baton of leadership, there are feelings of either jubilation or apprehension. The declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re-election in the 2019 general elections for a second term in office is a welcome development to all members of the Forum for the Patriotic Members of APC and all patriotic citizens at home and in the Diaspora.
This, indeed, has revitalised the values of courage, competence, honesty, dignity and integrity for Nigerians all over the world.” He appealed to Nigerians to shun sentiments and those who are corrupt minded so that Buhari will lead Nigeria to the land of our dream. According to him, a country’s sustainable development does not come without sacrifices by the citizens during the incubation period.
