A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has pledged his support for President Muhammadu Buhari's second term bid, saying that the president deserved a second term in office.
Tinubu, who made the comments in Abuja on Tuesday, June 12, at the investiture of Moshood Abiola in Abuja, said that he would work for Buhari's victory in the 2019 presidential election, Punch reports.
NAIJ.com notes that Tinubu claimed that Nigerians are no longer paying for darkness, giving an indication that electricity supply has become stable under the administration of Buhari.
The APC leader commended the president's school feeding programme, a component of the federal government’s Social Investment Programme.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that a former personal assistant to the late Moshood Abiola, Lisa Akerele, on Tuesday, said the annulment of the June 12 election will forever haunt the then military head of state, Ibrahim Babangida.
Commending President Muhammadu Buhari for declaring June 12 as Nigeria's new democracy day, Akerele called for financial compensation for the family of the 1993 president-elect, for the loss and pains they suffered as a result of the June 12 saga.
Speaking on Abiola's crumbled business empire including the Concord Press of Nigeria, Radio Communication Nigeria Limited, Abiola Bookshops, Abiola Bakeries, Abiola Farms, Concord Airlines and Summit Oils, Akerele said the compensation would help the family to revive the companies.
