Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, yesterday, led the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women and Youths Presidential Campaign Team on a solidarity walk to rally support for the re-election of her husband.

The first Lady, Hajia Aisha Buhari, who expressed gratitude for the show of support to the second term bid by her husband, called on voters to keep the peace on election day.

Represented by Dolapo, the wife of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Aisha Buhari made reference to the several roads, rail services and  other developmental projects embarked upon by the current administration to underline the need for a second term for President Buhari at the poll.

Mrs Buhari said: “President Buhari has already shown he is a good man worthy of support by Nigerians. It means we are sure APC is going to the next level; it means everyone is going to the next level. After we must have voted, we must endeavour to wait until the votes are counted in polling units. You all have to vote peacefully. There should be no fighting on the day of election.”

Also, minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung, faulted claims by the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the level of poverty among Nigerians went up since the inception of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Speaking during the walk for Buhari, organised by the women and youth campaign organisation of the APC campaign organisation in Abuja,

Dalung argued that Nigeria cannot be exempted from the malaise as poverty and insecurity remain a worldwide phenomenon.

He cited oil rich Venezuela and Sudan as clear examples of similar conditions, which were even plagued by demonstrations and violent street protests occasioned by high levels of crime, surging inflation and food shortages.

The minister insisted that President Buhari has put in place measures to address the problems associated with the biting level of poverty in the country, which he said, was caused by 16 years of PDP-led administration.

Chairman, Central Working Committee, Women and Youths team, Brig Gen Buba Muhammed Marwa, who spoke in the same vein, said President Buhari deserves a second term to move the country to the “next level” of growth in security and the socioeconomic development of the country.
