2019: UNBELIEVABLE! All 36 Governors Are Working Towards Buhari's Re-Election - Yari
Governor Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara State says all the 36 state governors will support and work for President Muhammadu Buhari, to ensure he is successfully reelected.
The Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, says all the 36 state governors including those on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are making financial contributions to President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign; for his re-election.
Yari said this in his remarks during the official inauguration of a grassroots campaign organisation, Forward Buhari, where he hinged his claim on the contributions Buhari made in giving bail-outs to states; to pay workers’ salaries.
"We are for Buhari for so many reasons. The president has done something not expected. There was a time up to 20 governors couldn’t stay in our states because we couldn’t pay salaries of workers.
“Therefore, if he did this to governors, who are separate entities, irrespective of parties, I think this is time to pay back. I am speaking for PDP, APC governors and others.
“We also know that he has zero tolerance for corruption.
“Each APC governor is coordinating for him. Where APC does not have a governor, we have a coordinator. Your job is to do ward to ward to polling units.
"We need to work harder, go back home to ensure that our aim is achieved by returning president Buhari for a second term
“Again, a lot has been done by President Buhari.
"He gave Paris Club Debt refunds, he has been going on about infrastructural development, has signed so many outstanding bills into law. I am proud to associate with him and we shall do all things possible to ensure that each and every vote count for him,” he said.
Speaking further, he added: “You know why governors are backing Buhari? I knew what happened in the past administration and now. The president has given us infrastructure. It has been right to ride behind him. We will do all to support this group".
