N-Power volunteers support Buhari’s re-election

Beneficiaries of the N-Power programme on yesterday took to the streets of Abuja to demonstrate their support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid.

The  rally moved from Area one round about through the All Progressives Congress Campaign Office in Central area to the Old Parade Ground.

It was tagged “Rave for Buhari: Energising the FCT 4 Next Level’’ and involved volunteers from the 36 states and the FCT.

Some of the beneficiaries told NAN that their resolve to vote massively for Buhari at the Presidential election scheduled for Feb. 16 was to return him to consolidate on the good works.

Mr Abdulwasiu Akanbi, an N-Power beneficiary under the N-Agro, Cooperative Department, Federal Capital Territory Administration, said the Federal Government for successfully implementing the social investment programme, noting that it had brought succour to the youth who were hitherto roaming the streets in search of jobs.

“Today no fewer than 500,000 youths across the country are meaningfully engaged under this scheme, so there is reason to appreciate Buhari and support his re-election bid,” he said.

“For instance, the Mokwa-Jebba road to Ilorin which had been in a very deplorable condition has received the needed attention,’’ Akanbi added.

According to him, Buhari must tighten his belt in the fight against corruption because that is the major reason the country is lagging behind in terms of infrastructure.

Another beneficiary, Mr Ambrose Egwari, a teacher at Galadimawa Primary School, said that the programme had improved the standard of education in the country.

According to him, the infusion of N-Power volunteers to support teachers in schools has resulted in schools having more qualified teachers. (NAN)
