The Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed has called on Nigerians ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari is reelected in the forthcoming 2019 election.

Mrs Ahmed made this appeal on Sunday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Presidential Convention.

She stated that Buhari had performed well and deserved to be re-elected in 2019.

”The president has done extremely well. People should remember where we are coming from and where we are, right now.

”We have done a lot of very good programmes and projects. Some have been concluded but there is still a lot that needs to be done.

”So we need to vote for him and return him as president so that he can complete the good work he has started.

”Therefore, my call to Nigerians is that everybody should come out en masse to exercise their civic right and people should not be deceived by money or other forms of inducement.

”Look at the person you are voting for; does he have the pedigree, the ethics to be the right person? That should be our guiding principle,” she said.

Similarly, the Minister of Budget, Senator Udo Udoma, said though President Buhari had done well, he would do better in his second term.

”As you can see that we had a very successful convention and we are all delighted to support President Muhammadu Buhari in his quest for a second term.

”We believe that we have done well and that in his second term, he will do even better,” Udoma said.

He called on Nigerians to vote President Buhari for second term in 2019.

”They should come out and vote for President Muhammadu Buhari because as I said, he has done well and in his second term, he will do even better because he will come with the experience of the first term,” he added.
