Following the success recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari in the ongoing war against insurgency, the National Coalition of Patriots for Positive Change has called on the President to seek a second term in office.
During a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, the coalition, led by Charles Mbani, National President and Israel Akindele, Secretary General said the President deserves another term in office.
Going by his achievements in the fight against insurgency and the fulfilment of his campaign promises,the coalition said after a critical assessment of the administration of President Muhammdu Buhari in the past two years, they have no doubt whatsoever that he has performed creditably well.
“As such he deserves our commendation and also, worthy of another term in office because of his sterling performance, which we would all agree is what our dear country needs at this critical stage of our existence”, the coalition said.
The coalition further said it is delighted to identify with the administration of President Muhammdu Buhari for his sterling performance in office in the last two years.
“This is because of his avowed commitment to the continued existence of the Nigerian nation. President Muhammadu Buhari has indeed fulfilled his campaign promises to Nigerians in two years of his administration.
“We would recall that one of his campaign promises is to win the war against Boko Haram insurgents who were in control of over 20 local government areas in Borno state North-East Nigeria. “Today, no local government area in Borno state is under the control of Boko Haram insurgents. This is indeed a testament to the commitment of President Muhammdu Buhari to the Nigerian cause. He has indeed matched words with action.
“As a result of the achievements of tthe administration of President Buhari, the coalition said they believed President Muhammadu Buhari deserves another term of four years in office for him to consolidate on his numerous achievements, especially the war against terrorism and corruption.
“We also believe that the purposeful leadership provided by President Muhammdu Buhari has returned Nigeria to the path of progress once again.
“We are by this press conference urging President Muhammadu Buhari to seek a second term in office, not just to consolidate on his developmental agenda, but to ensure that never again in our history as a nation would we be held ransom by insurgents and terrorist.
“We also appreciate the Nigerian military and urge the Service Chiefs never to relent in defending the Sovereignty and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
