- A senatorial aspirant in Niger state, Alhaji Shuaibu Gwada, has called on Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019
- Gwada listed not less than three reasons Nigerians should support the president in his rerun bid
- He said that the president has achieved much for the country in the areas of agriculture, economy, and security
Alhaji Shuaibu Gwada, a veteran journalist and All Progress Congress (APC) senatorial aspirant for Niger east district on Thursday, Wednesday 13, called on Nigerians to support the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Gwada told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the president's leadership scorecard in the past three years was laudable.
He said that the president had lived up to expectations in economic reforms having enhanced local content and food sufficiency.
“You can agree with me that Nigeria is now self-reliant on their own food produce especially rice. This administration has saved many Nigerians from poisonous rice that were being dumped in the country after many years in the ship,’’ Gwada said.
The APC chieftain, who said that he was in the race for the Senate to complement Buhari’s efforts in building new Nigeria, restated his call for Nigeria’s support.
Gwada said that President Buhari delivered on his promise of fighting corruption irrespective of some pockets of compromises by few people.
According to him, graft and indiscipline are now publicly seen and identified as crime and not a way of live unlike before. He lauded the president for degrading Boko haram in spite of few challenges.
The Niger east Senatorial Aspirant urged Nigerians not to lose hope, saying that Buhari was determined to take the country to the promise land.
NAN reports that Buhari returned his nomination form to run for second term on Wednesday, September 12.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had submitted his nomination and expression of interest forms to the APC at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja shortly after presiding over the federal executive council meeting on Wednesday, September 12.
It was reported earlier that President Buhari was expected at the APC national secretariat on Wednesday, September 12, to submit his nomination and expression of interest forms for the 2019 presidential election.
