 2023: Fusion774 call Amb. Buratai to join presidential race

 

Former Chief of Army Staff and Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Benin, Amb. Tukur Buratai, has been asked to run for President in 2023 by Fusion774, a political support and economic advocacy group.

Mr Sediq Jikta, the National Coordinator of Fussion774, made the call at a news conference in Abuja on Friday.

Jikta said the call came as a result of the country’s security issues, and that the threats to the country’s national security had been a source of great concern.

He stated that in the 23 years of Nigeria’s democratic experiment, it had faced several dangers to its survival, such as civil unrest, which necessitated the use of experienced hands to steer the country’s affairs.

According to him, Nigeria is going through a difficult period, and it is critical to choose the proper leadership, one that has the skills and aptitude to deliver and make the country operate.

Buratai’s accomplishments as a service chief in the battle against insurgency, according to the coordinator, demonstrate his outstanding qualities and qualification to run for the highest position in the country.

He said that the height of Boko-haram activity occurred during Buratai’s tenure as chief of army staff, and that his competent leadership resulted in the recovery of overrun territories from the militants.

Jikta also based the appeal by Fusion774 on Buratai’s several accomplishments, including repositioning the Nigerian army for increased efficiency.

According to him, experts feel that the future security problem will be internal security rather than external aggression, as countries will have to deal with both.

In his words, “During his time as COAS, he brought to an end the rampant spate of bombing in the country, hence, Nigerians could enjoy peaceful atmosphere to carry out their daily businesses.

“Gen. Buratai also exhibited an open door policy of good governance, where private citizens with something to offer in terms of security are given listening ear and action taken.

“With these achievements we can see that Buratai is one courageous leader who can step in to bring the much needed solution to the security challenges and the desired development for the country.

“We are using this opportunity to call on Buratai to come out and declare interest and contest for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“By this announcement, we are prepared to purchase the APC nomination form for him in the event that he declares his acceptance and readiness to contest.”

Fusion774 is essentially the union of the political strength of Nigeria’s 774 Local Government Areas into a virile, strong, and formidable political force, according to Jikta.

He claimed that the group was primarily driven by people from all walks of life working for the common benefit of the country.
