Yahaya Bello, the Kogi State Governor, has said President Muhammadu Buhari remains the “unbeatable candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC,” in 2019.
Bello said this while stating that people of his state and Nigerians in general were determined to ensure that Buhari continued his “good work for the nation beyond 2015”.
Speaking with reporters in Abuja, Bello said despite concerns about the president’s health, Bubari is “fit to continue to unsettle the forces of corruption.”
According to him, “We are a Democratic Party who will do everything within the ambience of the rule of law. But we cannot forget that our party has the most respected, the most popular and the most incorrigible material in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“All over the world, his name represents anti-corruption, transparency and good governance. We cannot jettison such a global brand.
“It is true that many people are concerned about his health. President Buhari is now fit to continue to unsettle the forces of corruption who think four years are enough for people to forget the pains their corruption brought on our people.
“People who love Nigeria will definitely want Mr. President to continue. His second term will help strengthen our institutions of governance and assure our nation of a greater tomorrow.
“Ambitions are normal in politics. But the Nigerian project is far more important than the interest of individuals. Our party leaders will continue to act in unison for the prosperity of Nigeria”.
