The Camp of the All Progressives Congress, APC, seems to be waxing stronger by the day as we approach the February 16 Presidential Elections in the country.
71 Army Generals, Admirals and Military Governors (retired) have Declared their support for President Buhari’s Second term bid.
This was made known when the Retired Military chiefs paid a courtesy call to Aso Rock on Monday, 2 February 2019.
They said that they thought it right to visit the President, in other that he has represented them well as President.
President Muhammadu Buhari is a retired major general in the Nigerian Army and previously served as the nation’s head of state from 31 December 1983 to 27 August 1985, after taking power in a military coup d’état. The term Buharism is ascribed to the Buhari military government.
Addressing the retired top officers Buhari said:
“God has made this country great. We have human and material resources, and may God continue to give us the right leaders. My objective is very clear, and I will continue to do my best,”
“We have no other country but Nigeria. We will stay here and salvage it together,”
“Nigeria could not have survived the damage done to it materially and morally in the past,” glorifying God that after 30 months civil war, with over two million lives lost, “we are still one country.”

President Buhari went on to say that the military is an institution which provides wonderful opportunities for officers to have a wide view of the nation, its diverse peoples and cultures.
He further appreciated the officers for still considering him as one of them despite becoming a President under civilian rule.
“I was governor of North-east, which is now six states, Minister of Petroleum for over three years, head of state; I was arrested and detained, but did not lose my rank, because nothing was found against me.”
Leader of the representating officers, Brigadier-General Buba Marwa, who was military governor in Borno, and later military administrator of Lagos State praised the president for allegedly fulfilling the three principal promises he made during his 2015 campaigns.
In his words:
You announced a simple three-point agenda upon assumption of office namely security; fighting corruption, and the economy. You have kept your words as an officer and a gentleman.”
Gen Marwa added: “We the retired armed forces officers, representing 99.9% of our colleagues say that we are proud of you; proud to be associated with your administration; and proud to witness this era of Nigeria rising again under your able leadership.
The Spokesman of the delegation further declared that they totally and wholly support President Buhari in the Presidential elections which would be conducted next Saturday.
In his words:
“We support you fully and totally in the presidential elections next week and will do whatever we can within the law to contribute to your emergence as the victor in the election in order to take Nigeria to the next level.”
