Beneficiaries of President Muhammadu Buhari’s various intervention programmes in Kwara have declared their support for the re-election of the president and all APC’s candidates in the state.
The beneficiaries declared their support for the president on Friday at a rally organised by ‘Speak up Nigeria’, a pro-Buhari civic group that is harvesting people’s opinion of the administration.
Speaking one after the other, the beneficiaries said the President Buhari’s administration has brought succour to millions of down trodden masses in the rural areas.
Alhaja Risikat Agbeyangi, a pepper seller and beneficiary of Trader Moni at the popular Ipata market, hailed Buhari for bringing governance directly to the poor.
“We thank the president for his support to us; it was timely and met our personal and business needs, some of us expanded our business with it.
“We have resolved to declare our support for Buhari and his supporters in Kwara state against all odds,” she added.
Balogun Kabir, a beneficiary of N-Power Health, said the programme was a great boost for public health at the grassroots as masses now have direct access to tips on basic health issues.
A beneficiary of the N-Teach and resident of Magaji Ngeri of Ilorin west, Jimba Abioye Yahya thanked Buhari for the employment opportunity.
“I want to advice Nigerian youths to vote Buhari and Pastor Yemi Osinbajo who saw us as productive elements in the nation and not just instruments of political violence.
“I am grateful for the employment opportunity they gave me and my fellow Nigerian Youths,” he said.
Omowunmi Akinsefunmi, a resident of Basin road in Ilorin, said the N-Power scheme offered her internship opportunity to train as a technician.
“I appeal to Nigerian youths to see voting Buhari again as opportunity to a better Nigeria as we cannot afford going back to the bad old days,” she added.
Mallam Aliyu Dansokoto, a pepper seller in Ipata Market and beneficiary of Market Moni also commended the president for bringing succour to his life.
“The N10, 000 given to us by the President Buhari-led Federal Government aided our business and we found things easy during his tenure.
“I am appealing to Nigerians to vote Buhari again for a better Nigeria,” he said.
Kwara State public relations spokesman of N-Power beneficiaries, Salman Habeeb Olesin, said the Buhari administration has brought succour to millions of unemployed youths in the country.
“President Buhari has employed over 500, 000 youths through the N-Power programme.
“I am a trained teacher lying idle before Buhari came, but he gave me the opportunity of practicing and making a living out of what I know and have passion for, teaching.
“I want PMB to continue beyond 2019,” he said.
