Gov. Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa state has said that the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019 is a done deal, saying the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors, were only waiting for political activities to kick-start next year.
Al-Makura, made this known Wednesday, while receiving members of the Democratic Youth Assembly (DYA), who paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Lafia.
According to the governor, as soon as the ban on political activities for 2019 general elections is lifted, the APC governors will all go out to ensure the realization of Buhari’s re-election to enable him continue with his good works for Nigerians.
The governor said the President, has brought about sanity in the country by restoring hope and security of lives and property thereby making it possible for many Nigerians who were contemplating relocating to other countries before his coming on board to stay back home in the country hapily.
“The re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari, my mentor come 2019 is a work over because the sanity he brought to this country and the restoration of security of lives and property of the citizenry, among many other achievements will speak for him”
“For us in the APC Governors Forum, we are only waiting for the whistle to be blown so that we can do the needful to actualise this noble project of ensuring Mr. Presidents remains in Aso Rock beyond 2019”.
Earlier national chairman of the group, who is also the member representing Akwanga South constituency at the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Kassim Mohammed Kassim, told the governor that the DYC, is a body of highly committed Nigerians, who are out to ensure President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election come 2019.
