The National Harmonised Traders Union of Nigeria on Thursday endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest for the Presidency in 2019. The President of the association, Alhaji Bature Abdul’aziz, made this known to newsmen in Kano. He said the decision of the union to declare its support for Buhari to re-contest for the presidency was borne out of its firm believe that Buhari would take the country to greater heights considering the achievements he recorded in the last two and a half years.
“Though we are a non-partisan organisation, we will support you (Buhari) to contest for the second term and this time we will put more effort than we did before. “We advise you (Buhari) to remain resolute on your trust to Nigerians in your quest to ensure peace and unity in the country,” he said.
Abdulaziz commended the president for the successes recorded in tackling the Boko Haram insurgency and the fight against corruption in the country. “Your efforts in infrastructural development especially road network development across the 36 states is gradually taking shape. “We congratulate you on the effort being made to revamp our rail transport system to a 21st century standard,” he said.
