Ahead of the 2019 general election and as President Muhammadu Buhari prepares for a reelection, the South West Zonal office of his Muhammadu Buhari-Osinbajo (MBO) campaign team, Dynamic Support Group, is set for inauguration on Saturday, January 20.
The Minister of Communication, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, revealed the details of the inauguration while speaking to State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday.
The Minister also informed he has been appointed the national chairman of the board of trustees of the MBO Dynamic Support Group while describing Buhari as “Saviour’’ of Nigerians.
“Every day since he came into office all his activities are geared towards letting Nigeria know that they have a saviour, a rescuer, somebody who is committed to providing relief for Nigerians in all respects.
“These include fighting corruption, insurgency; whether in the North East or the Niger Delta; in the area of repairing the economy and providing jobs and providing social stability in the society.
“You will agree with me that today but for Buhari Boko Haram would have invaded even Lagos,’’ Shittu said.
The minister, who disclosed that President Buhari was yet to indicate interest on whether he will seek re-election in 2019, said his ardent supporters would continue to pressure him to seek re-election to enable him complete his good works to Nigerians.
“It goes without saying I mean if you have a child who goes to primary school does well, proceeds to secondary school does well, and you keep asking is he going to university?
“By the grace of God, we his ardent supporters who appreciate his worth on behalf of millions of Nigerians would urge him to re-contest.
“I know he has not made up his mind but I can say that some of us can assist him in making up his mind so that Nigeria can continue to enjoy stability and progress in our land,’’ he added.
