2019: Why we are persuading Buhari to run, DG VON


Osita Okechukwu

Director-general Of Voice of Nigeria (VON) and Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Osita Okechukwu told The Guardian yesterday that members of APC are persuading Buhari to seek for reelection in 2019 because they are not sure of what will happen to the numerous unprecedented infrastructures his government has embarked on across the country, which include the railway project, 5000 kilometre roads, the Mambila Hydro power project and several others.

Okechukwu said that the Buhari administration’s focus on the critical infrastructure is the best thing to happen to Nigerians and there is need for him to be supported to complete all of them in his second term.

Okechukwu said, “We have no option than to persuade Buhari to run for second term because anything contrary to this will not be in the interest of Nigerians. Yes, there may be discontent in the land.


Yet, the little one can say is that President Buhari has his 12 million vote-bank intact any day. All he needs is critical supplement to win the presidential election; more so when his RRAP (Roads, Rails, Agric and Power) projects are gaining traction around the country.”

“I am not talking about fantasy; the RRAP projects are real. I’m not talking of former President Jonathan’s $23 billion three Greenfield Refineries, which disappeared after the fanfare that greeted the award of the contract; or former President Obasanjo’s Agege-Otta-Abeokuta and other federal road projects that are incomplete till date.”

On how the APC will overcome the backlash of herdsmen menace across the country in 2019, he said time will heal all wounds.
