President Muhammadu Buhari said on Wednesday that he would be consistent and steadfast in delivering effective leadership if re-elected in the forthcoming presidential election scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 16, 2019.
The president said this while addressing All Progressives Congress (APC) Supporters at a presidential campaign rally in Makurdi, Benue state.
“I assure you, I am not going to change. I am going to be consistent, I will remain steadfast. Anybody who abuses trust will be exposed and he will be dispossessed,” he said.
He said with the turn out of the crowd at the Aper Aku stadium, he was convinced that the people of Benue state have firm believe in what the federal government, under his leadership, was doing to transform the country.
“I stand before you to thank you most sincerely for deferring the weather and standing for hours to come and see and listen to us. I am very grateful. I am convinced that you believe in what we are doing and that you stand to support us even further,” he said.
The president said the federal government would continue to, “do roads, rail ways and provide electricity with monies recovered from looters.”
Also speaking, former governor of Benue state, Senator George Akume, said the president is one of the few Nigerians who does not like money.
“He had opportunity to make money as Head of State, minister of petroleum and military administrators of north eastern states but did not amass wealth. Buhari has managed the economy very well and we are very proud of him.
“The landmark projects of the government are impacting positively on the lives of the people. “Mr. President, you promised to provide infrastructure and we are seeing it, you are not a man of talk but action- talk and do,” he said.
Akume assured the president that he would get 70 per cent of the votes in Benue state in the forthcoming election.
