2023: Amb. Buratai seeks support for APC candidates
Ahead of the next year’s general elections, the Former Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Amb. Tukur Yusuf Buratai (CFR) has sought support candidates under the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform.
Gen Buratai made this demand on Tuesday when the Forum of Former Local Government Chairmen, Borno State Chapter paid him a courtesy visit at his Farm House Along Keffi-Abuja road.
He commended the forum for taking the time to congratulate him, while also appreciating the Governor of Borno state, Prof Babagana Zulum for the giant strides he is achieving in the area of security, particularly with the recently opened Gamboru Cattle Market.
He urged the forum to support and campaign for all APC candidates from Presidency to the State Houses of Assembly in the forthcoming 2023 elections.
“I wish to urge you all and your associates and loyalists to support all the candidates of the APC from the presidency to State Houses Assembly elections come 2023.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has done well and his Excellency Babagana Zulum has done well, so our support for the party to consolidate all the achievements is required.
“I appreciate your visit and kind words but above all, I urge us all to rally around support for the APC candidates in the 2023 general elections” he stressed.
In his remarks, the Chairman of the Forum, Alhaji Mallum Bulin, said their visit was among others to appreciate the good works he had done for the North East while serving as Chief of Army Staff, adding that it would interest the world in knowing that North East’s major business is farming and trading, where the insurgents had destroyed almost everything.
The forum chairman commended the former COAS for his efforts while in office in liberating the people of the State from the hands of insurgents.
“We are here to appreciate him as our son for the good works he did and still doing in addressing insecurity in Nigeria, and we come to submit our political allegiance to you, we are ready to follow you”.
