National coordinator of Change Advocate of Nigeria (CAN) Comrade Gebriel Nwajei has said that the senseless killings in Benue and Zamfara and other parts of the country following intelligence report has gone beyond Fulani herdsmen that it has a political coloration intended to distract the ruling party.
He also alleged that, the opposition party sponsored on unidentified gunmen to rise afoke on some communities within the country just to discredit APC because the All Progressive Congress government has done what PDP could not do for 16 years in 3 years, like the anti-corruption war.
In a press release made available to correspondent in Asaba, signed by the National Youths leader Change Advocate of Nigeria, Gebriel Nwajei also called on party delegates across the country to throw their weights behind the former governor of Edo state, Aliyo Adams Oshiohmole for the position of party national chairman.
The group also took the opportunity to call on Nigerians to reelect President Muhammadu Buhari come 2019, for his anti-corruption war within and outside the shores of the country, insisting that for exiting the country from recession, Buhari deserves second term.
According to the release, “increase in agricultural produce in rice and cassava production, N-Power programme for young graduates, assent to the not too young to run bill, granting autonomy to Houses of Assembly, states judiciary and the recent investiture on MKO Abiola and others for their doggedness including the declaration of June 12 as the country’s democracy day” are enough reasons to reelect him as president.
CAN noted that it takes courage to make such decisions that would have positive effect in the country’s national live and co-existence, saying, “We acknowledge that there is still more to do in the areas of security, restructuring, local government autonomy and conducting free and fair elections for the sustenance of our hard earned democracy, after all, Rome wasn’t built in a day”.
Furthermore, the group added that her mission is to mobilize youths across the urban and rural areas of the country with Permanent Voters Card (PVC) for the 2019 Presidential Project.
However, advocate that, President Buahri, has created over six million jobs in the agricultural sector, “We are convinced that over 70 per cent of rice is been produced in Nigeria unlike when we were having over 80 per cent of rice coming from outside the country’’
