The Nation reports that the south east students union made this known in a statement by the national president, Okechukwu Chigbo.
Chigbo said the union will hold a zonal rally in Enugu to formerly adopt President Buhari as its preferred candidate in the election adding that over one million delegates are expected to be in attendance.
The statement read: “Fellow countrymen, we can attest to the fact that previous administrations in this country faced a lot of challenges which were inherited by the Buhari-led administration.
“Therefore, we need total restoration of our dear country back to her lost glory. For us to achieve this we need a leader whose words are his bond, a man who puts character above wealth.
“Nigeria needs a leader who has a strong will and never to lose his individuality in a crowd. The giant of Africa deserves a leader who makes no compromise with wrong.
“We need a man whose ambitions are never confined to any selfish desires, a man that will always be honest in small things and in great things.
