The Plateau state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) have endorsed President Mohammadu Buhari and Solomon Lalong of Plateau state for second term.
According to the chairman of the council Capt. Joseph Din, he said Buhari and Lalomg has done enough to deserve a second term.
“Mr President has fight corruption with all Political will hence the improvement in the economy of the country which only the opposition may not see and appreciate, but the attack on corruption has today attracted commendation all over the world to the effect that the African Union has appointed him the first chairman of fight against corruption in Africa,” the elders said.
They said the Buhari administration has done well in also engaging the youths.
“Based on the foregoing, we the elders advisory Council wish to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest as President come 2019 in spite of the comments made by some eminent citizens calling on him not to re-contest and we assure him of our unflinching support,” they added.
They also lashed out at Chief Olusegun Obasanjo for asking the president not to contest saying this was left for Nigerians to decide.
“Obasanjo does not have the right to stop President Buhari from contesting for a second term, the elections is for the 180 million Nigerians to decide, but not one man in this country can come out and decide for the President, after all the Constitution allowed him to contest for second term and he is not seeking for the third term like Obasanjo wanted to do,” Din stated.
