The Kogi governor stated that Buhari must contest in 2019, adding that all the 24 APC governors were ready to support his reelection.
He said, “Presdent Buhari must contest second term because all the 24 APC governors are ready to support his reelection
“All the PDP members that mattered in the state have all decamped to the APC because they have seen the light and realised that APC hasbetter programme for the people of the state and Nigeria in general”
Odigie-Oyegun, on his part claimed President Buhari had liberated the country from impending economic doom.
Buhari had succeeded in re-positioning the economy from dependency on oil and focusing on other sources of revenue such as agriculture, he said.
“Nigeria, under President Buhari, no longer depends on oil to survive. Today, Nigeria, under Buhari, has taken the lead in the agricultural production and the nation is operating on a stable economic progression.”
