Nasarawa residents repose confidence in Buhari to overhaul nation
SOME residents of Nasarawa State on Sunday said that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, can change Nigeria for good.
They gave their opinions in separate interviews with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lafia.
Mr Silas Agara, the APC gubernatorial running mate in the state, said Buhari “is an upright person who has nothing to gain in deceiving Nigerians.”
“If you study him as a person, you will notice clearly that this man has one goal in mind and that is to rescue Nigerians from recession, corruption and so many other problems that are facing us.
“Even the opposition admits that he is a man of trust and incorruptibility, and that is why they are very worried now.’’ he said.
Mr Clement Godwin, another resident said he was not suprised that Buhari is admired by many across the country.
“Going by his antecedents, this is not a surprise to me, we all know him to be a man who keeps his word.
“He is in politics because it is the only medium available to get to the position where he can help Nigerians regain what we have lost over the years.’’
Miss Lizzy Oyelade, said Buhari’s manifesto and plans for Nigerians if elected were in tandem with the needs of Nigerians.
“Hence I believe that he can change the country for good. You will realise that issues on corruption, insecurity, unemployment and youth restiveness are constant in his campaign.’’
Mallam Ahmed Abubakar, another resident said he believed that Buhari will change Nigeria like Gov. Umaru Al-Makura has done in Nasarawa state.
“When Al-Makura came on board, not many people believed he would do much, but look at Nasarawa today; are you not proud of the transformation?, Gen. Buhari will also transform Nigeria for the better, I strongly believe that,’’ he said. (NAN)
