As preparations towards the 2019 general elections gathers momentum, one of the leading gubernatorial aspirants in Gombe State on the platform of
All Progressives Congress (APC), Alh. Farouk Bamusa, has donated a campaign office edifice and 13 vehicles for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and his election. Speaking to newsmen shortly after the presentation of the vehicles at the state APC secretariat in Gombe, the gubernatorial hopeful said it had become necessary for Nigerians with progressive minds to contribute in any form towards achieving a second term for President Buhari considering his numerous achievements since he assumed power in 2015.
“That is why I decided to donate a multi-million naira campaign edifice and vehicles to all the local government areas in the state, the state party officials and elders forum of the party in aid for the campaign.” Bamusa said Nigerians have seen tremendous change in all aspects ofdevelopment, in less than three years of Buhari administration, hence he deserve a second term for continuation of the good developmental projects he started.
He said the fight against Corruption, insurgency and the improvement of the nation’s foreign reserve among others are some achievements of the present regime.
Speaking on his aspiration, Bamusa said the project of rescuing Gombe state and liberating it from bad governance, requires urgent attention that’s why he decided to join the race and if elected he will surely put things right. “PDP government has messed up the state, totally, there is drinking water, no sanitation, no health care services, no youth employment. I am coming with new ideas that will engender change, progress, employment and businessactivities.” He said. The gubernatorial hopeful also gave the assurance that he will be ready and willing to support whoever emerge as the party flagbearer through a free, fair and transparent primary.
“As a party man I will support whoever emerge as the flagbearer in a free, “Middle Belt, the land of the people that were never conquered nor enslaved. I am delighted and grateful to God for this important gathering of these free people whose freedom had been put to question in a very barbaric manner under a democracy.
“It is too late in the day for Nigeria’s democracy to be subjugated. I want to assure you that like my brothers have said, this is not a personal ambition, it is a struggle to save Nigeria from imminent fascism.” He declared.
He therefore assured Nigerians that his government would fix the nation’s economy, create enabling environment for business to flourish and create jobs for the benefit of all and sundry.
Also speaking, another presidential aspirant, Professor Iyorwuese Hagher said many Nigerians from the region are eminently qualified to become the next president of this country.
According to him, we have very highly qualified leaders in this region who can become the president of this nation. If I become the president of this country, there will be peace, equity, quality, progress and Nigeria will be greater.
In his own speech, the Former Deputy Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), who is also another aspirant, Dr Obadiah Mailafia said the race was not a do or die affair and whoever emerged among the contestants would be supported during the forthcoming presidential election in 2019.
“We are all going to work together because we are brothers and sisters, the race is not about me, it is not a must, it is about our people, their long suffering and the destiny of this nation. What kind of leadership do we want? What kind of transformation do we want?
“My vision is of a country that will be competing with Germany not South Africa or Brazil. A very advanced technological society based on the rule of law, based on democracy and socio justice.
“This is what I believe in. I believe in good government and I believe in servant leadership, this country must not continue like this, it may collapse, so let us work for a collation of patriots not only from the Middle Belt but through South and the North extent of this nation.” He pleaded.
