Buhari Opens 2019 Presidential Election Campaign Office As Minister Calls Him “A Saviour”
Thursday January 4, 2018 – Buhari Approves Opening Of 2019 Presidential Election Campaign Office As Minister Calls Him “A Saviour”
PMB has approved the opening of his first campaign office in the South-West.
This is coming ahead of his final declaration for the 2019 presidential election. Minister of Communication, Barr. Adebayo Shittu, who disclosed this yesterday to State House Correspondents at the presidential villa, Abuja after a closed door meeting with President Buhari, said the office in the South-West will be commissioned on February 20.
he minister said that he seized the opportunity of the meeting to inform the President that already, the Board of Trustees of the Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group had been appointed and will be inaugurated at a grand event.
Shittu explained that as presently constituted, himself would serve as board chairman of the Buhari/ Osinbajo Campaign and Support Group.
While justifying his action, the Communication Minister stressed that Nigerians have never had it so good like what is being witnessed across the country. Shittu described President Buhari as “a saviour” who is at the helm of affairs in Nigeria.
He said: “Everyday since he came into office, all his activities are geared towards letting Nigerians know that they have a saviour, a rescuer.
Somebody who is committed to providing relief for Nigerians in all respects.” The minister emphasised that Buhari deserved a second term in office and should be encouraged to recontest.
He also noted that the President has done well in certain areas including the fight against corruption, insurgency whether in the North-East or the Niger Delta, economy and the provision of jobs as well as social stability nationwide. “You will agree with me that today, but for Buhari, Boko Haram would have invaded even Lagos,” Adebayo said.
Speaking further, the minister, who responded to questions on whether the campaigns for 2019 had started in earnest, said: “If you have a child who goes to primary school, does well; proceeds to secondary school, does well, and you keep asking is he going to university?”
Shittu said that even though the President had not made up his mind on the matter, he, along with other ardent supporters, would urge him (Buhari) to contest for a second term in office. “I know he has not made up his mind, but I can say that some of us can assist him in making up his mind so that Nigeria can continue to enjoy stability and progress in the land.”

I ones was for the real Buhari based on my little experience i had about his leadership with Idiagbon,there was total discipline(maybe there was a hidden agenda) and Nigerians are respected all over the World on that their short stay.
During the campaign that made him democratic president,i still saw him as that humble fellow who had good intention (maybe i was a fool or fooled),in fact he was still trying until British do this their magic and give us different version of Buhari, they,British threatened him much,showed him again agreement they reached which states Fulani’s were born to rule…. folks what i am driving at here is, THE cabals are British,they are behind the backwardness of Nigeria and they enshrined it in the mindset of the Fulanis who are known for their conquer nature.

KAI…. I JUST Don‘t know what to tell this overfed sycophant called Shittu.
See, may God in Heaven decend His angry Thunder on you and your entire generations yet unborn for presenting, praising and promoting evil all because of your selfish greedy gains.
Even buhari himself knows he can‘t win a second bid if he dare, hence he remain indicisive about the whole thing and you want to drag his leg by mouth praise.
If you believe you and you cohorts can make him (buhari) make up his mind to re-contest then you will only succeed in draging the old man to a “Quicksand of failure“ and you can count on that prophecy.
So by your score card buhari has performed excellently well in all matters cocerning security and other areas and fulani herdsmen are busy killing innocent law abiding citizens on daily basis across the country with a careless abandon?
Your head no correct, in fact, you deserve being stoned to death for this your useless nonesense statements. God punish you and that your mouth.
2019 will tell. Can you go to Benue, Bornu, Enugu, Kaduna etc and make this stupid comment? Fool.
I take a stroll…

Nonsense talk. What has president Buhari done for Nigeria for the 4year he has occupied the presidential office. Upon all the billions and trillions he has recover from PDP party members, he has not done anything with the money. Buhari tenure is the worst and most looting tenure I have ever witness since I was born. The old man should not bother to contest again,let’s also give youths a trial.

This man called Shittu is trying to save his ass and position and continue to siphon the treasury as they normally do. Mr. Shittu is fighting for his pocket; he does not care for the welfare of his fellow Nigerians. The only arena I see that Buhari has made an impact is the fight against corruption and even at that corruption still contiinue to thrive. His son was riding a $157,000 BMW motorcycle when he had the accident. In Naira at N365 it is N57,619.000 (FIFTY SEVEN MILLION, SIX HUNDRED AND NINETEEN THOUSAND NAIRA). Does Buhari know that his son purchased such an expensive bike? Bolaji Tinubu is the richest politician in Nigeria today. He made his daughter the Iyaloja of Eko (the head of all market women in Lagos state) and they pay royalty to her. Governor Rochas Okorocha is there in Imo state grabbing all the land, building properties and him and him family and some idiots in the Imo state house loot the Imo state treasury. His son in-law and his deputy joined the frey. I dont know why the people of Imo have not risen up like they did during the Otokoto riot.
