Tom Okpe, AbujaAhead of the forthcoming election, wife of the President, Aisha Buhari on Monday led other central working committee of the APC Women and Youth Campaign Council to Wuse market, seeking support for the All Progressives Congress (APC). Chairman of the working committee who led the campaign on behalf of the President’s wife, Brig. General Mohammed Buba Marwa said they were delighted with the trust and love shown by women and youths for the President appealing to go back to their communities to encourage vote for Buhari. He said Buhari was a candidate that is easy to sell because of his qualities and achievement in office, pointing that those who collected the trader moni has demonstrated that it was for political reasons. Marwa said: “Buhari is a candidate that is easy to sell. He is easy to sell based on his personal qualities and performances in office” Mrs. Oluwatoyin Badmus, leader of the market women coalition, said it would be disastrous to ask the government to halt all its pro-people programmes because the nation is in a campaign season and official welfare schemes could be misconstrued as using government resources for politicking. “Government does not have to halt its programmes just because some partisan politicians would view it differently as we are in election season. “Most of our people here are beneficiaries of Tradermoni. They (government) came here and gave us money and they did not ask for our Permanent Voter Cards PVCs, except our names. Tradermoni is not vote-buying unlike the propaganda being sold to Nigerians by the PDP”, she said. Former Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba said President Buhari was interested in rebuilding the country and therefore need the support of all Nigerians to complete the work he has started, appealing to the traders to give Buhari their votes. Another speaker, Prince Odinaka said this was the first time in the history of Nigeria that women and youths are given the opportunity to decide on who will lead Nigeria, adding that Nigerians should not allow those who loot the treasury to return to power.
