The Founder, Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO), Alhaji Hassan Isiaka Sarkin Kudu has advocated synergy among the various support groups canvassing for the second-term electoral victory of President

Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 while cautioning them to shun in-fightings,
fake news and other negative acts that could be detrimental to the main goal in all its ramifications.

He expressed delight that BCO which started humbly in 2014 as Buhari Campaign Organisation Arewa Community South West Zone has now metamorphosed to a national support group with members spreading across the entire states of the Federation.

The Sarkin Kudu Yamma who is presently a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of Buhari Campaign Organisation spoke in Ibadan, Oyo State capital yesterday at an interactive session with journalists during which he also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the “fatherly manner” by which he successfully handled the lingering issue of the workers minimum wage submitting that the President actually meant well for the Nigerian labour.

He noted with delight the high rate at which the present administration is also going about infrastructural development across the country particularly in the areas of roads construction and rehabilitation, railway transportation system, power supply, agriculture and security, saying “the future looks very bright for Nigerians with President Buhari at the helms of affairs.”

Alhaji Hassan Isiaka remarked that this is not a time for members of the Buhari Campaign Organisation to engage in self aggrandizement, personal interest or intra-party wranglings.  Rather, it is a period for them to focus on educating the teeming masses on the good work the Federal Government has been doing across the Federation since the past three and a half years, he stated.

“In this regard, therefore, what we need mostly is synergy amongst all loyalists of the Buhari Campaign Organisation at home and in the Diaspora, for the President to emerge victorious come 2019,” he further said.

The Sarkin Kudu Yamma also enjoined members to be security conscious and always be on their guard as, according to him, political opponents are continually perfecting ugly strategies to malign the reputation of known Buhari loyalists for their ulterior motives.

Meanwhile, the Buhari Campaign Organisation has disowned a letter
purportedly written by its executive members to the Minister of Works,
Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, soliciting for contract jobs for
some named companies describing the said letter as a fake and an
attempt by certain political enemies of President Buhari to frustrate its ongoing campaign for the president’s reelection in 2019.

“It is either those behind the fake letter chose to forge the signature of our leaders in crafting the missive to use the name of the BCO to make financial fortune for themselves or are trying to
frustrate our ongoing campaign for President Buhari’s reelection.
Whichever way, it is apparent that the enemies of the president are at
work”.

Spokesman of President Buhari’s campaign team, Festus Keyamo (SAN),
had last Friday issued a statement, saying the BCO does not have the
mandate of Buhari in writing the letter to the minister for jobs for
some companies so as to help meet its financial pressure.

But in a statement issued by its Director of Communications and
Strategic Planning, Mallam Gidado Ibrahim, the BCO distanced itself
from the letter, noting that it did not emanate from its office.

Ibrahim said: “Our attention has been drawn to a letter purportedly
written and signed by our National Coordinator, National Patron and
Chairman, BOT, to the Honourable Minister of Works, Power and Housing
seeking for contract jobs. Let it be made clear here that there was no
time the BCO decided to generate funds or mandate anybody to write a
letter on its behalf to the minister.

“It is either those behind the fake letter chose to forge the signature of our leaders in crafting the missive to use the name of the BCO to make financial fortune for themselves or are trying to
frustrate our ongoing campaign for President Buhari’s reelection.
Whichever way, it is apparent that the enemies of the president are at
work”.

Ibrahim further noted that members of the BCO are responsible citizens
who make a living in their various jobs and profession and have been
contributing funds to champion the second term bid of the president.

“The sacrifice we are making is borne out of the conviction that
President Buhari is the kind of leader Nigeria needs at the moment.
The president has purged the Nigerian system of corrupt elements and
we are convinced that if given another four years, he will change the
country and make it a better place for all.

“This singular belief is what drives our members to be steadfast in
its campaign for him. We have never received a dime from the president
or anyone close to him to canpaign for him and we don’t intend to do
so.

“Even if the BCO feels constrained to seek help, it would rather
approach the president who has been following the activities of the
group in the past years instead of going through the back door as the
authors of the fake letter are trying to paint us.

“We therefore urge the public to disregard the said letter, as it did
not emanate from any of our members. We also want to assure Mr
President of our unflinching support for him and that we shall
continue to do our best to convince Nigerians that a second term for
him is a brighter and prosperous future for them”.
