A Muslim group in the South West, Trust Alliance Foundation for Change, (TAFC), has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari of All Progressives Congress(APC), for re-election in the forthcoming general election.
Dr. Morufu Afolabi, its Coordinator, said the endorsement of Buhari from its part was hinged on the policy-driven and ethical government that has been entrenched in the country since the coming on board of the President and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
At a news conference on Wednesday in Akure, the Ondo State capital with members from the south-west states, Afolabi berated the statement credited to the PDP candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar on the alleged plan to sell off of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) to his “friends.”
This he noted had revealed that the former Vice President cannot be trusted with governance.
“We base our decision to work and vote for the success of Buhari/Osinbajo in the forthcoming presidential election on the level of integrity and achievement in the fight against corruption, infrastructure development.
“We are convinced that the expected Modern Nigeria is achievable if we have the like of Buhari as Governors and Chairmen in all the 36 States and 774 LGAs in the federation,” he said.
Afolabi urged Nigerians, particularly the south-west electorate to ensure that President Buhari is re-elected during this month’s presidential polls, adding that the region would benefit more.
“Nigerians should look beyond Buhari/Osinbajo winning the 2019 Presidential Election and be more concerned about how to get similar credible candidates who will take over from them after expiration of their term in 2023,”Afolabi said.
The Ondo State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro said President Buhari will win the election hands down as no credible candidate is available to defeat him.
“As regards PVC, we have sensitised the public on the need to obtain their PVCs as it is the only mean to determine who govern them. We have informed the public to shun vote buying as this could be disastrous to the survival of our nationhood,” he said. fffffffffffffff
