Stanley Uzoaru, Owerri
Governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), Uche Nwosu, has restated the commitment of supporters of his party to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the rescheduled presidential election.
Nwosu, who briefed newsmen in Owerri, said the postponement of the Presidential and National Assembly elections has not killed his zeal and that of his supporters, adding that they will come en masse to cast their votes for the President.
He said though the postponement came at a great cost to Nigerians, it would have been more costly if at the end of the day the election was discovered to have been compromised.
He said: “We are prepared to deliver president Muhammadu Buhari on February 23, there is no going back on that. We are still committed to our promise to deliver one million votes to Buhari and not even the shock and disappointment of the postponement can alter our resolve.
“On the day that the election was scheduled to hold, we had already mobilised massively and we were sure of victory for the president before the election was postponed, but, we are back to the trenches and we are seriously mobilising our members across the state ahead the February 23 presidential and national assembly elections.”
Nwosu, however, enjoined members of the party, as well as all his supporters across party lines to remain calm and rise above the pains and disappointment of the election postponement and focus on the job at hand.
