If re-elected, we will sustain the change to correct systemic distortion- Buhari 

  • inaugurate, women youth presidential campaign team

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said, if re-elected in the February 16th presidential election, he will sustain the change mantra to correct systemic distortion of past administration. 

“I am happy to tell you that we have made numerous landmark achievements and the change remains unshaken and continues until we return Nigeria on track to assume its rightful place among the comity of nations, he said at the  inauguration of Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team at the State House Conference Center.

“To all Nigerians, I appreciate your love and support. I hope you will renew the mandate you overwhelmingly gave us in 2015. Please do not be distracted, our country is on course.”

He charged them to reach out to all Nigerians door-to-door and remind them why the ruling party needs another four years.

While stressing the critical role of the women and youth in the campaign as direct and indirect beneficiaries of the social investment programmes, Buhari said, “In carrying out this assignment, I expect from members of this team the same loyalty and support which you exhibited in 2015. Let us remind Nigerians about our plans, our good work and achievements. Tell the people why they should give us another four years. Our dream is to sustain CHANGE so that all systemic distortions can be corrected and we can enjoy the fruits of being Nigerians under the banner of freedom. It is also our hope that our unborn children will inherit a better nation.”

The President said the gathering reminded him of his political struggles over the years and the support he enjoyed from all. 

According to him, “My association with you has been for very long and is characterized by loyalty to the cause of change.

“The Women and Youth Presidential Campaign Team being inaugurated today was constituted to support the Presidential Campaign Council which I chair. This shows the importance with which we view the role of women and youths as the backbone of the Nigerian electorate. As such, they should be the drivers of our campaign, more so, they are the major direct and indirect beneficiaries of our social investment programmes.”

Buhari while commending his our party men and women for their unwavering support and commitment,  called on them to redouble their efforts and “re-elect us in February, so that they can witness the next level of change.

Chairman Board of Trustees of Buhari Support Organisation, Col. Hammed Ali, in his opening remarks, stressed that Nigeria was too great and important for selfish interest to be set aside and rescue her.

He said Buhari had the option to seat back and tend to his garden in Daura or Kaduna but because of his love for the nation, he decided to return to rescue it.

“I assure you that we are behind you and we will work for your success. We are going to hit the road and let the people know what we have done,” he said.
