The former Head of State and Presidential aspirant in the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the 2015 election, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd), has also continued his launching campaign to raise the planned N7 Billion raise funds from his supporters nationwide via facebook.
The initiative is expected to see his supporters contribute a minimum of N100. While addressing a group of young supporters under the aegis of Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), Buhari said he decided to buy into the initiative because of the in-built mechanism for ensuring accountability and transparency in its operations.
In a message on his facebook page, Buhari urged for sacrificial giving from his supporters, noting that he was not ignorant of their already difficult living conditions. He, however, cautioned that sacrifice was needed in order to put an end to the life of the Goodluck Jonathan administration and with it, according to him, the tide of corruption, insecurity and other pains on Nigerians.
In the message, Gen. Buhari said:
“As we have made it clear, our campaign is going to be funded, planned and run by ordinary Nigerian citizens like you. This is in recognition of your role as biggest stakeholders capable of changing the course of history of this great yet badly run nation.
“Our opponents have huge financial resources, I have only you and God, and I trust that our struggle will triumph. Our opponents have foreign bank accounts and possessions to run to when they destroy this country, me and you have only this Nigeria to live and die in. So let’s join our hands to make it better.”
“Thank you and God bless.” He added
