Spokesperson of the Buhari/Osinbajo re-election campaign organization, said that since 1960 when Nigeria gained her independence, no government has ever touched the lives of the poor like the Buhari-led administration has done in the past 3 years.
Festus said this when he spoke at the inauguration of Buhari/Osinbajo Project 2019 in Ilorin, Kwara State yesterday August 23rd. He said what President Buhari has done was to take the bullet from the rich to protect the poor.
“They operated a system that ignored physical infrastructure in the country, that ignored the plight of the poor, the weak and the vulnerable in Nigeria. If you compare what accrued to the country in 16 years and what were done with the money earned in three years and infrastructure built by Buhari, you will see the difference. In 16 years, all they did in the South East was Onitsha-Owerri road, whereas in three years, President Buhari is doing four major road construction in the region. You have a president who has fought for you, why can’t you fight for him. This is the time he needs you more to fight for him. It is reciprocal and that is why we must remind ourselves today why we must stand firmly behind him in 2019. I can tell that there is no government in the history of this country since 1960 that has addressed the plights the poor, the vulnerable in the last three years than this government.” he said
