The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has in a recent statement advised Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019 as this is in the best interest of the country.
The Kogi State Governor made the re-election call in a statement released by his director General on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo.
The Governor who stated that the re-election of the current president would be in Nigeria and Nigerian’s best interest added that it has taken a lot of efforts to “rescue the country from the deep pit of economic mess” which previous administrations put it.
The statement further added: “We were here during the previous administration, and we saw what our country went through.
“Revelations in courts and from anti-graft agencies have shown us how bad the country was exposed to economic woes.
“President Muhammadu Buhari came and has continued to do his best to sanitise the country and relaunch it on the map of international reckoning.
“It takes more time to rebuild than to destroy. For our President to have achieved this much is magical and laudable. In the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians, President Buhari should continue to lead our country beyond 2019.”
The governor also noted that with the visible progress Nigeria has made in recent times, Buhari is indeed the man for the job come 2019.
