A retired Major-Gen. Olu Bajowa, the Chairman of Legacy Forum, a unit of the Buhari support organization, says that any vote not for President Muhammadu Buhari re-election will be a waste come Feb. 16 poll.
Bajowa stated this at Igbotako during a stakeholders’ meeting of the All Progressives congress( APC) across the 13 wards of Okitipupa Local Government of Ondo State.
The meeting was in furtherance of Gen. Bajowa’s bid to ensure massive grassroots votes are garnered for President Buhari, who is seeking a second term in office in the Feb. 16 election.
Legacy Forum has been in the forefront of the campaign for the sustainability of good governance which the body maintains that the Buhari government stands for.
The chairman of the group appealed to all and sundry to deliver their individual votes for Buhari/ Osinbajo, saying the duo were better positioned to take the country out of the woods.
The retired General enjoined voters in the forthcoming election to cast their votes to Buhari so that there would be landslide victory, assuring that the president would not disappoint Nigerian populace if reelected.
According to him, opinions and other parameters are indicating victory for the president.
He noted that the group had been sensitising the public about the need for Nigerians to support the Buhari presidency so that “the next level” would become achievable for all Nigerians.
The chairman stated that President Buhari had a lot of things working in his favour among which are: integrity and accountability, good governance and anti corruption posture, ensuring security and infrastructure drive which was equal to none.
Bajowa flanked by his wife, Mrs Yemi Bajowa, urged electorate not to sell their votes and that they should shun violence, saying ‘politics is not do or die affair’.
“My advice is that people should not sell their votes as vote buying and selling amount to trading off peoples’ future and that of their children.
“On the day of the election, electorate should vote and not fight and but guard their votes jealously ,” Bajowa said.
Also speaking, Mr Bode Ikulala, the APC chairman in the local government area, thanked the Legacy Forum and Bajowa for associating with the party at this auspicious time.
Ikulala added that the party at the local council area, state level and the national level would not forget the depth of support given by the retired General.
He reassured him that the party was very popular in the grassroots and that they would go with the progressives than associating with those who had stolen the country blind in the time past.
The meeting had in attendance all APC ward executives in the 13 wards of the local government area.
