- The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO) has taken a decision to endorse the president as its sole candidate ahead of 2019
- The BYO says the decision follows its study of President Buhari's activities in the last two years
- The group reveals its resolution in Makurdi, Benue state, after a meeting of its members
The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO) has declared President Muhammadu Buhari its sole candidate for 2019 just as it asked the number one citizen to seek re-election to enable him consolidate on the achievements recorded by his administration.
In its resolution published by Vanguard, at the end of its national delegates conference held in Makurdi, the Benue state, the group, through its national president, Comrade Yusuf Nalado, said its members made the decision after carefully studying the achievements of President Buhari in the last two and a half years.
“Prominent among the achievements are the anti-corruption crusade, the war against insurgency, introduction of the Treasury Single Account, Social Investments Programmes and the Customs and Federal Inland Revenue reforms among others,” part of the resolution said.
Speaking further, the national organising secretary of BYO, Terhide Utaan, said: “We presently have no alternative to President Buhari whose policies, unarguably, have placed our country on the pedestal of sustainable growth and development.
“Indeed today the image of our dear country has since been enhanced around the world and Nigeria is gradually retaking its pride of place in the comity of nations courtesy of President Buhari’s led government.

“It is on this premise that we the youths of our dear country are appealing to the President to run again in 2019 in the collective interest of all well-meaning Nigerians.”
NAIJ.com reported earlier how Ya’u Umar Gojo-Gojo, a former speaker of the Katsina state House of Assembly and the Katsina North senatorial district candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 general election, declared that the opposition party cannot defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Though Buhari is yet to declare interest to seek re-election, Gojo-Gojo, who has now defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the quest by the PDP to reclaim the presidential and Katsina state’s governorship seats are misplaced hope.
