The North-eastern part of Nigeria will vote massively to reinstate president Muhammadu Buhari for a second term, Next Level Project has declared.
National coordinator of the group, Umar Waziri Kumo made this known while addressing journalists on Tuesday after a townhall meeting with politicians and youths of the North East in Bauchi state.
The Next level project
The Next level Project is a political campaign group of President Muhammadu Buhari. The group aims at garnering support for Buhari’s re-election bid in 2019.
Why will the North East vote for Buhari?
Kumo who is also a Personal Assistant to the President, stated that people of North East would massively support Buhari’s reelection bid in view of his administration’s impacts on their lives.
He claimed that the Federal Government had done much to the zone in the areas of roads construction linking all the six states and in the fight against insurgency “has improved greatly” the security of lives and property in the sub region.
According to him, agriculture that has been the main occupation of people of the zone has also received tremendous boost due to the commitment of the APC-led administration.
“This is evident in the boost in rice production and other staple foods that have almost made Nigeria a food-sufficient nation,” he said.
Buhari will win in 2019- Kumo
Kumo expressed optimism that the APC presidential candidate will win the entire North East in the next election.
According to him “stakeholders had during the townhall meeting resolved to help the group in mobilising support for the reelection project of Buhari/Osinbajo in 2019.”
He maintained that they would work for Buhari’s re-election based on his youths and empowerment programmes, Ongoing Mambila Hydroelectric power project and appointment of key persons from the Zone into sensitive and important positions by the APC led administration.
They cited the Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Comptroller General of Customs, SGF and NITDA DG as part of the positions accorded to the zone.
