A Pro-President Muhammdu Buhari youth group, I Stand With Buhari Movement, ISWB, says it’s is consolidating and widening its spread to ensure the President’s landslide victory in 2019 presidential election.
The Deputy National Coordinator (South) of the group, Chineme Ume-Ezeoke, said on Thursday in Lagos that Buhari’s victory would be based on his outstanding performance in the last three and half years.
Speaking on the movement’s approach to create more awareness across the zones in the country, the coordinator said that the strategy was purely issue-based and devoid of propaganda.
He said the movement had taken steps to consolidate its youth mobilisation and voter education by inaugurating local government coordinators for all the 774 local government areas in Nigeria.
According to him, the aim is to take the message of Buhari to every home in Nigeria and to raise a new generation of patriotic Nigerians from the grassroots.
Mr Ume-Ezeoke, a former Special Adviser to late President Umaru Yar’Adua, said in a statement: “These coordinators have likewise inaugurated coordinators for the various wards and polling units in their local government areas”.
“With these established networks, we are working to ensure that 2019 general elections is a resounding victory for president Buhari and APC.
“It is in pursuit of these ideals that the movement is constantly expanding its fellowship base and enlightening volunteers on the essence for Nigerians to see leadership continuity as a tool for consolidating the gains in the fight against corruption,’’ he said.
Mr Ume-Ezeoke also said that various achievements of the present administration could be felt at all levels.
According to him, the movement’s approach is based on facts and to make the people see the truth that corruption has been the bane of development.
“We have to educate our people that there is danger in voting those who do not have the boldness to deliver Nigeria from clutches of bad governance.
“The movement has been in the forefront of grassroots-oriented sensitisation, mobilisation and empowerment of Nigerian youths across all the geo-political zones for greater nation building.
“From inception, the vision has always been to stand as a backbone to ensure adequate support for this administration through the propagation of the mission and vision of Buhari for Nigeria.
“We must ensure that everyone remains actively engaged in defending the core ideals of Buharism which includes standing for honour and integrity in all we do,” he added.
