Abacha’s son promises President two million votes

The governorship candidate of the Advance Peoples Democratic Alliance  in Kano State, Alhaji Mohammed Abacha, on Monday backed President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection bid, promising to  help get at least two  million votes  in the state.

The eldest son of the late Head of State, Gen Sani Abacha, publicly endorsed the All Progressives Congress’  presidential candidate for a second term while addressing reporters  at his campaign office on Maguwa Road in Kano on Monday.

Already, the national body of  the APDA has expressed  its support   for the President’s  reelection bid.

Abacha, who was represented by the  Chairman of  the APDA in Kano, Alhaji Bashir Bataya, said he decided to  support  Buhari based on  his  achievements since he came into power in 2015.

According to him, some of Buhari’s achievements are  security and economic stability, capital projects and  agriculture  development.

Abacha said, “The APDA in its search for a torchbearer  for  this great nation, has found Buhari as a man of integrity, transparency and he is incorruptible.

“We have noticed tremendous improvement in the area of security in Nigeria, especially in the North-East. Again, the stability in our economy and agriculture is a thing of joy. The home-grown feeding programme has generated millions of job opportunities and improved the consumption of local farm produce. When you consider the nation’s economic situation between 2014 and 2015, with the present situation, you will see that the country has largely improved.

“On capital projects, the Buhari government has completed and is still working on several abandoned projects across the country, especially road projects.”
