2019: Buhari group ap­points co­or­di­na­tors in South West

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Jeremiah Oke, Ibadan

Sup­port­ers of Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari, un­der the aegis of Buhari Cam­paign Or­gan­i­sa­tion (BCO), yes­ter­day, in­au­gu­rated the South West re­gional of­fice in Ibadan, the Oyo State cap­i­tal.

The group also ap­pointed co­or­di­na­tors for the six states in the re­gion.

Speak­ing at the event, Na­tional Co­or­di­na­tor of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, Al­haji Dan­ladi Pasali, in his open­ing re­marks, ac­knowl­edged the role played by the South West in en­sur­ing the emer­gence of Buhari in 2015.

Pasali said: “We all know that the birth­place of this or­gan­i­sa­tion is here; it was nursed and brought up here. So what we are see­ing to­day is part of your legacy that has been set for the na­tion in sup­port of our pres­i­dent, whose pi­ous mind is to re­shape Nige­ri­ans from all forms of un­pa­tri­otic ac­tiv­i­ties and set the coun­try for a proper and re­al­is­tic sys­tem so that the fu­ture of our next gen­er­a­tion would be guar­an­teed.”

Speak­ing on the health of the pres­i­dent, Pasali said, “His tremen­dous re­cov­ery must be cel­e­brated by giv­ing glory to God. We would con­tinue to pray for his safe re­turn.”

He said part of the agenda of BCO was to as­sist peas­ant farm­ers to reg­is­ter so that they could get di­rect loans from CBN and other farm­ing in­puts.

In his re­marks, Al­haji Ahmed Ajibade, a high chief in Ibadan, who is also the pa­tron of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, said even if Buhari was not able to go out to cam­paign, the or­gan­i­sa­tion would spear­head it to en­sure his vic­tory.

Some top mem­bers of BCO that at­tended the event in­cluded Dr. Bawa Ab­dul­lahi Wase, the Am­bas­sador Plenipo­ten­tiary to Qatar; Al­haji Isaka Has­san, founder BCO and mem­ber BoT; Al­haji Salami Olagoke and Chief Daniel Omofese among others.
