Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says discredited elite has ganged up against President Muhammadu Buhari, praying for his death because he stopped grand corruption in Nigeria.
Professor Osinbajo spoke at the National Consultative Forum organised by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups in collaboration of the Council for New Nigeria Initiative in Abuja.
He described President Buhari as the gate keeper who has blocked all avenues through which the elite loot Nigeria's resources.
He said it was because of this that the elite wanted him dead.
They prayed for him to die he didn't die, when he came back hale and hearty by the grace of the Almighty God, they mourned while Nigerians rejoicedThe fear of Buhari makes these people desperate even crazy.
So now they say he is Jubrin from Sudan.
If you can't discredit him say he doesn't exist! They were all alive and well when Pastor Adeboye went to London and prayed for him the day before he returned to Nigeria.
How will one jubrin sit in Federal Executuve Council, conduct meetings, consult with his ministers , speak to me daily!
Their strategy is simple if you tell a lie often enough some will believe you.
Buhari is not only alive and well; he will by Gods grace live long and welll after his second term in office, the Vice President stated.
Professor Osinbajo said the Buhari administration has been able to accomplish a lot in three years.
This is because he wants to use the resources of this country for the common man unlike what happened in the previous government.
Between 2010 and 2014 our nation earned the highest amount ever in history from oil the sum of US383 billion.Just to compare in the same period, we have earned less than US112 billion.
When we came into office in 2015 over 22 States were owing between three to six months salaries. The President insisted we must support the states to pay.Yet this was when oil was down to 30 dollars a barrel or less.
He said; We are earning 60% less than the previous government, yet in the past three years we have spent N2.7 trillion on infrastructure, the highest in the history of the country .
We are not stealing the money. We are using it for the people.
Professor Osinbajo enumerated the projects that the administration has executed to include; major roads in 36 states, the Lagos-Kano railway , the Warri-Aladja , the Mambilla hydro power project and the Port Harcourt-Maiduguri Railway.
He also said that the administration was feeding over 9.2 million children every day; giving two million petty traders a better deal in life with Tradermoni; employed 500,000 graduates under the NPowerprogramme and giving about 300,000 of the poorest Nigerians N5000 a month.
The Vice President said the 2019 general election would be historic and would be a battle between those who want our country's resources to be used for our nation and the people and those who want to privatise the commonwealth.
The man who stands against the forces of retrogression and for the future of our children is the man called Muhammadu Buhari.
Come February 2019 the APC will by the grace of God win the general elections.
We will return President Muhammadu Buhari as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for a second termHe is not perfect man, but he is an honest and truthful man, Professor Osinbajo added.
The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu urged Nigerians to re-elect President Buhari in 2019.
Tinubu said the integrity of President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has given confidence to businesses to invest in Nigeria.
Leadership is about character.
Don't worry, we have a good team; they will talk about herdsmen and farmers clash; if they are not the sponsors, they will know because it has been happening during their era too, Tinubu said.
According to him, the herders-farmers conflict in some states of the country could be turned from tragedy to prosperity.
We have the capacity in this country to do irrigation; utilise our water resources; to create green pastures and ranches.We will convert that mystery; that tragedy to opportunity to our people-livestock.
It is economy; we have higher institutions which have conducted various studies on ranching; we can only change the way of life of some people.The Fulanis will have greeners pastures, okay; lets build schools; let's build ranches and create economy of farming for farmers to provide animal feeds.
If we create slaughter labs and abattoirs, we can now hygienically transfer those feed in a cold storage-transportation; that is equally business,the APC National leader said.
Good will messages were delivered at the event by some APC leaders and candidates for the 2019 general elections.
