Director of Awareness and Sensitisation of the National Movement for Re-election of Buhari (NMFRB), Prince Samuel Ojo, has applauded efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government in building a prosperous Nigeria, adding that his leadership qualities are worthy of emulation by other leaders across the world.
Ojo cautioned political leaders in Nigeria against inflammatory and unguided utterances capable of heating the polity, stressing that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable.
According to him, there is no doubt president Buhari’s capacity to take Nigeria to the next level.
While advising the opposition to play the game by the rules, the retired deputy commissioner of Police, commended the National Coordinator of the movement, Dr. Orji Kalu, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Comrade Adams Oshiomole and other stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for their spirited efforts in ensuring victory for president Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, in the February 23 presidential election.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, yesterday, Ojo stated that NMFRB leadership has concluded plans to commence a “Thank You” tour of all the states of the Federation; as promised during its sensitisation visits to all the states, before the 2019 general election.
He said: “I salute the courage of our national coordinator, Dr. Orji Kalu, who took it upon himself to galvanise support for the re-election bid of president Buhari, by visiting all the states in Nigeria before the general election.
“While the president was on medical vacation abroad, Kalu was mocked by the opposition for making claims that president Buhari, would be full of life upon his return to Nigeria.
“We are happy that today, Kalu has been vindicated; not only because the president is hale and hearty but has performed beyond expectations.
“For the sake of building a decent society, Nigerians must complement the efforts of the president in its determination to reposition the country.
“We must shun violence and political sentiments in the interest of national unity.
“The president has done extremely well since he assumed office in 2015.
“The goodwill of president Buhari is what the APC is enjoying. As suggested by the NMFRB national coordinator, Dr. Orji Kalu, the party should honour the president with the position of Life Chairman, Board of Trustees of the APC.
“The president is the brand behind the APC.
“After the expiration of president Buhari’s tenure, the party will still leverage on his robust popularity across the country.
“Every Nigerian knows that president Buhari means well for the country”
Ojo, while commending APC governors for their patriotic gestures during the sensitisation visits to their states, added that the pro-Buhari group will seize the opportunity of the ‘Thank You’ tour to sensitise the public on its post-election activities.
The retired police officer, who urged the national coordinator of the movement not to relent in its efforts to take the group to greater heights, added that president Buhari has written his name in gold, in the history of Nigeria, owing to the remarkable achievements of the federal government, under his watch.
