Katsina – The Katsina State chapter of Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) has declared support for the re-election of the President Muhammadu Buhari and Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State in 2019.
Alhaji Ibrahim Kallah, the Coordinator of the group in the state, made the declaration at a press conference on Sunday in Katsina.
Kallah said that the decision was in recognition of the successes recorded by the Federal and Katsina State Governments under the APC platform.
He said that the successes were on economy, fight against corruption, unemployment, security, agriculture and power sectors, among others.
“It is a fact that the present administration had recorded tremendous successes in security without which nothing can be achieved.
“There is the need to recognise the zeal of the Buhari administration particularly in the security sector especially the recovery of 14 local government areas that were previously under Boko Haram control in the Northeast.
“Rebuilding lives of the millions of people displaced by the insurgents by returning them back home withing two years is laudable,” he said.
The coordinator pointed out that ensuring continued peace in the Niger Delta through the amnesty programme for ex-militants was also a good step for ensuring security in the region.
He stated that boosting morale of the Nigerian military and equipping the Armed Forces is also something that contributed towards the successes recorded in the security sector.
In Katsina state, the coordinator said that the issue of cattle rustling has become a thing of the past sequel to the introduction of amnesty programme.
According to him, hundreds of cattle rustlers surrendered their weapons in the state while over 480 weapons were destroyed.
He therefore urged people to support the re-election of Buhari and Masari in 2019.
