Timothy Choji, Abuja


Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has called on political leaders in Nigeria, to invest more in the lives of ordinary Nigerians, whose requirements are basic amenities like potable water, healthcare and education.

She says: “provision of these amenities will guarantee an easy re-election for any official.”

Mrs Buhari was speaking during a courtesy visit on her by officials of Project 4 + 4 Buhari/Osinbajo for 2019 at the State House.

The wife of the President, who commended the Pro-Buhari group for its campaign for the re-election of President Buhari, called on them to continue to propagate the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which promises to improve the lives of Nigerians, as well as publicize what the party has achieved so far.

She expressed happiness that millions of Nigerians have directly benefitted from various components of the Social Investment Programme of government, citing the N-power, TraderMoni and Conditional Cash Transfer as visible successes.

Mrs Buhari therefore, called for more publicity on these positive and beneficial projects which are direct dividends of democracy.

“Our party has done creditably well despite numerous challenges” she said, stating that apart from starting fresh human and infrastructural developmental projects, our great party is also completing projects abandoned by former governments; such projects will not only secure more jobs for the people, they will also lead to more development,” she said.

Earlier, the National Coordinator of the group, Garba Bello, said President Buhari has promised four years of change, which he has accomplished with numerous landmark projects; and therefore requires the next four years to consolidate these achievements.

Bello said the group targets 35 – 40 million Nigerians for sensitization through various channels, saying that most Nigerians need to be reached with facts and figures on the change that has been achieved since 2015.

He said they will employ digital media, town halls, publications and other direct methods to ensure that Nigerian electorate make the right choice in 2019.

Members of the group include Chief Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Jr. Hajiya Binta Muazu, among others.
