President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday hosted Members of the Muhammadu Buhari Osinbanjo Dynamic Support Group at the State House in Abuja, with a promise to keep Nigeria safe, secured and prosperous.
The President said his second term will focus developing the country’s economy, jobs creation; good governance which included the fight against corruption and security for all Nigerians.
The Muhammadu Buhari Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group, it will be recalled, is amongst the foremost group that worked for the president’s election in 2015 and for his reelection in 2019.
According to the president, effort must be placed on continuing with the first tern agenda that will provide a Nigeria that is safe, secured and prosperous for all.
The President thanked MBO Dynamic Support Group for its commitment and steadfastness, pointing out that the sacrifices and selfless work that the group has done has not gone unnoticed.
Buhari said the aim and agenda of the government is to have a Nigeria where families will be safe and children having opportunities for comfortable lives.
“As leaders in your various communities, I urge you all to take the message back to your community. It is not about politics, religion or tribe. It is about having a Nigeria where our family will be safe and our children we have plenty opportunities to earn a living and have comfortable lives.” he stated.
Thanking the group for the hard work and dedication during the 2019 elections campaign, he said that his administration is committed to delivering on its mandate.
On his part, the National Coordinator of the group, Hon Usman Ibrahim, said the group was at the State House to felicitate with the president on his reelection victory at the just concluded presidential election, despite the fierce contest.
Ibrahim said the collective victory was not a handout, but a reward of the president’s painstaking commitment to the covenant he made with the people of this country in 2015, saying the masses and the commoners renewed their trust in the president, because they believe he’s the one that has the capacity to move the nation forward.
“We are celebrating with you today, Your Excellency, but it is important to state that this victory was achieved through the sacrifice of many Nigerians, many of whom may be too insignificant to earn a mention in the books”.
According to Ibrahim, MBO Dynamic Support Group embarked on a cashless campaign/election and never received any money from any individual, party, the presidential campaign council, or the directorate of support group, but mobilized its millions of members across the 36 states of the country and the Federal Capital Territory to ensure that the job was done.
The MBO national coordinator said the group will soon transformed into a foundation that will ensure that the ideals of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vive President Yemi Osinbanjo are sustained.
