The United Kingdom Chapter of the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) has called on Nigerians to be critical of politicians who looted the country`s treasury in the past.
Mr Joseph Adebola, convener of the UK BSO, said that Nigerians should avoid voting such politicians back to power in 2019.
He made the call in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, adding that such politicians should not be allowed to get close to the corridors of power in the interest of the nation.
Adebola made the call at the lunch of the UK chapter of the BSO held at the D’Luxx Restaurant in Blackheath, London.
He added that the goal of such politicians, was to continue looting the nation`s treasury and to further impoverish the masses.
Adebola, however, said that now was the time to support the BSO in Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
He added that the UK chapter of the BOS would continue to sensitise Nigerians on the need to ensure the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
This, he said, was critical to ensure the consolidation of the achievements of the Buhari-led administration in all facet of the county`s economy in the last three and half years.
Adebola noted that the administration had laid the foundation for a brighter future for generations yet unborn, apart from its three cardinal programmes which were economy, security and fighting corruption.
He added that the administration had also succeeded in diversifying the country`s economy from over reliance on oil to agriculture as well as blocking the looting of public treasury by public office holders.
He said the Social Investment Program designed primarily for the masses with no access to mainstream banking system and the clean-up of Ogoni land was a first of its kind in Nigeria.
Adebola added that ensuring victory for the APC and President Buhari in the 2019 general elections should be the focus of all party members and progressive Nigerians.
He further added that members of the party should redouble their efforts to forestall the opposition from getting close to power.
‘’Those that plundered the country’s common patrimony and almost pushed it off the cliff edge, are now regrouping with the devilish intention to regain power.
“It therefore behooves on well-meaning Nigerians to come together with a unity of purpose to not only stop these political mercenaries by breaking their shackles, but to retire them from active politics forever,“ he said.
The event was attended by Alhaji Garba Sani, BOS Diaspora coordinator, Nigerians from the country`s six geo-political zones, including Dr Dapo Williams, Prof. Ali Alao, Mr Seun Baiyewu and Ibrahim Magaji among others. (NAN)
