….Set to open Buhari/Osinbajo South West campaign office on Jan. 20

The re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari has begun ahead of potential rivals, even though he is yet to make up his mind on the 2019 presidential election, said Minister of Communications, Alhaji Adebayo Shittu, on Wednesday.

Shittu who said he has just been appointed national chairman of the Board of Trustees of Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group, shortly after a closed door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said the South West Zonal Office of the Buhari/Osinbajo Campaign Organisation would be inaugurated on January 20.

When asked if the development was an indication that campaign for 2019 has started, the minister responded, “Every day since he (Buhari) came into office, all his activities are geared towards letting Nigerians know that they have a saviour, a rescuer, somebody who is committed to providing relief for Nigerians in all respects.

“It goes without saying. I mean if you have a child who goes to primary school and he does well, he proceeds to secondary school and he does well, and you keep asking if he will be going to university. It goes with out saying.

“In the area of fighting corruption, insurgency whether in the North East or the Niger Delta; in the area of repairing the economy and providing jobs and providing social stability in the society.

“You will agree with me that today but for Buhari, Boko Haram would have invaded even Lagos.”

According to him, Buhari’s ardent supporters of which he is one would prevail on him to seek re-election.

“By the grace of God, we his (Buhari’s) ardent supporters who appreciate his worth on behalf of millions of Nigerians would urge him to re-contest.

“I know he has not made up his mind but I can say that some of us can assist him in making up his mind so that nigeria can continue to enjoy stability and progress in our land.”

He said they would help Buhari to make up his mind so that Nigeria can continue to enjoy stability and progress.

The eagerness to start a re-election campaign might expose the president to criticism for focusing on politics despite pressing crises at home and abroad, many in Nigeria say.
