A GOVERNORSHIP aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gombe State, Alhaji Habu Muazu, has urged Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s poll.
He donated N11m and campaign materials to 114 wards and 11 local governmens in the state to boost the re-election bid.
The money was presented to party leaders at a colourful ceremony at Emerald Hotel, Gombe.
While presenting the funds and campaign posters to the representative of the state chairman, Muazu said they will assist the Buhari Campaign Organisation to secure offices in the 114 wards and the 11 local governments.
He said: “I am doing my bit to save our state from a failed PDP government and to ensure that Buhari is re-elected.”
The aspirant said similar donations were made in the past, adding that he decided to made the latest one public to encourage voters and motivate party supporters.
Muazu called on the people of the state and the entire country to disregard the recent declaration by Rev. Father Cornelius Mbaka that Buhari will not win and that Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo should be supported for the presidency.
He said Dankwambo was no match for Buhari.
Muazu added: “From today’s endorsement by key stakeholders in the state you should know that Dankwambo is not popular and cannot be a march with President Mohammadu Buhari. So, I don’t know how Father Mbaka got his inspiration.”
The aspirant said the people of the Northeast have causeto support Buhari, considering the restoration of peace, the construction of the Mambilla hydro-electric power project, the establishment of the Northeast Development Commission many political appointments from the region.
The vice chairman of the party, Ado Gabani, who represented the chairman, Amangal Mike, thanked Muazu for the kind gesture. He also called on other party members to assist in taking the party to a greater height.
