Group appeals to Yoruba people over Buhari’s reelection
National Chairman of Door-to-Door Campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign, Osun State chapter, Mr Bola Ilori, has appealed to the people of South-West to come out en masse and vote for President Mohammadu Buhari, on Saturday.
Ilori made the appeal during the group’s door-to-door and market-to-market campaign across communities in Osun State.
He said that the Yoruba nation would adequately benefited if President Buhari is reelected into the office.
He further said, “presently, Nigeria is in the wilderness and gradually it’s moving towards the promise land and that is why people are complaining about hardship.
“It is clear that Nigeria has left the wilderness through President Buhari, who is laying a solid foundation for people of Nigeria to get to the promise land.”
Ilori, who is the former Commissioner for Regional Integration in Osun State also highlighted the achievement of the APC-led Federal Government, ranging from infrastructural development, social investment programmes and far reaching reforms in other areas of the economy.
He further assured the people that if President Buhari and his vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo reelected on Saturday, Nigerians would enjoy more of the numerous social investment programmes in which their administration has embarked upon since inception.
While speaking on the order of the President Buhari against ballot box snatcher, Ilori said the order is to caution the people engaging in extra judicial killing during election.
“Many people are regularly being killed in each electoral circle by those who attempted to snatch ballot boxes. The president has given order to forestall recurrence of such in accordance with section 33:2(a-c) of the Nigeria 1999 constitution as amended. We must all join hands to condemn extra judicial killings in Nigeria by election manipulators.”
He, however, called on security operatives to only be ruthless on armed snatchers, while others should still be arrested and dealt with appropriately.
It will be recalled that about some weeks ago, the Directorate of Field Operations of the APC Presidential Campaign Council activated party members across the federation who are canvassing and persuading electorate to vote for APC candidates in the general election.
