Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged Nigerians to vote massively to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 16 presidential election.
He described Buhari as an honest person, who would do whatever he promised to do.
Osinbajo said this on Friday, at the palace of the Olufon of Ifon in the Ose Local Government Area of the state during a house-to-house campaign which he led.
The vice president said Buhari was not corrupt and the person who would rebuild the nation, saying corruption was a major hindrance to the development of any nation.
He said, “Buhari is a truthful man and will do something if he says so. He built three of our refineries in four years. The development of Nigeria is a major concern to us. We all know what happened when we first got here. No country can develop when corruption is too much.
“This forthcoming election is particularly important to us because it is not all the time we have a representative in government, but when we have one, we should support that one to have more development.
“Our school feeding programmed feeds 9.2 million children daily. Whatever we have promised, we will do one by one. The railway, roads, water and power promised in the South-West will be done.”
The Ondo State governor, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu, thanked the vice president for coming to Ifon for the first time. He expressed the confidence that the APC would win the coming election.
He urged the people of the state to vote massively for the party during the elections.
“As you are here today, the people have seen you with us. It has great impact and it is more than any rally we could have organised. We are the same family and we see ourselves as one. I am happy we started in Ifon. A lot of things started in Ifon. It is part of the three key areas of Ondo State,” Akeredolu stated.
Earlier, the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi, explained that there had been development since the inception of the present administration of the APC.
