A group known as Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) has scheduled a 1m – man match in support of the re-election of President Mohammadu Buhari in Minna, Niger state.
The Niger state coordinator of the organisation, Alhaji Umar Shu’aibu said the match is scheduled for Wednesday in a chat with journalists in Minna.
He said the match is aimed at mobilising over 1.5m votes for President Buhari in the state in appreciation of his developmental strides and projects in the state.
He said, “we call on all and sundry to come out en mass for a one-million man match in support of re-election bid of our President, Muhamadu Buhari. He is the only man who has dared to fight corruption.He cares for the common man against all odds”.
Shuaibu said it was expedient not to grant elements vehemently opposed to the courageous fight against corruption, the opportunity to take the country back to the dark ages
He said: “It is not surprising that the corrupt elements are fighting back teeth and nails. Let us not grant them the slightest opportunity to take us back to those dark ages of insecurity, economic sabotage and massive corruption”.
He implored the people of the state to come out in their numbers and demonstrate their support in practical terms for the President by voting for him. He stated that Nigerians should encourage thepresident who wants our progress and development.
He said the match would be the largest gathering of supporters for President Buhari in the political history of the state adding that “it will commence from Trade Fair Complex at 9.00am on Thursday February 2019 through the Obasanjo shopping complex and terminate at the Niger state BSO Headquarters.’’
