Ahead of the 2019 general elections and months after President Muhammadu Buhari declared his interest in standing for reelection, the Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria has launched with greater focus on projecting the ideology of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Unveiling the new organization in Abuja, the national chairman, Chief Felix Idiga noted that, “GOGAN’s main goal is to canvass for support for President Muhammadu Buhari by projecting ideologies, policies to Nigerians.
He said the Buhari administration has a lot of masses oriented programmes and policies which must be publicized for Nigerians to understand the trajectory of the administration.
“Our job is not against anybody but about how to move the nation forward. So, we thought it fit to metamorphose into an organization that will be most enduring and serve as a catalyst for development. The idea is to bring together all groups that have been supporting the president in this sector so that we can have an all encompassing organization”, he said.
He added “Buhari is labour friendly; he has implemented policies that are labour friendly and that have won the hearts of the Nigerian working class. First he is the first president in Nigeria that has wondered how some state governors could sleep when their workers have not been paid.
“He has also been paying his workers as at when due and not only that he has thought outside of the box and provided bailouts to help some state governors who are not able to pay. And he walks his talks. We are extremely grateful to the President. Not only that, in reaction to the agitation by the NLC and TUC, the federal government under Buhari has set up the Minimum Wage Committee to review the minimum wage in the country and negotiations are under way and we are very confident that with this administration we are going to have a good result. So the least we can do is to support the continuity of this labour-friendly government.”
On the economy he said the government has initiated and issued three executive orders that are impacting the economy. “They have to do with the ease of doing business and the one that really interest us is the one on patronage of Made-in Nigeria goods, such that today all the businesses in Aba have been revived as they are making shoes because the Ministry of Defence has been directed to patronise locally produced goods. Also in textiles there are lot of activities now with the police and others to ensure that they patronise locally produced textiles. For me that has eased the cost of doing business,” he said.
“This government has demonstrated a commitment to democratic process.Therefore, there is no better evidence than what happened on June 12 1993 when the historic injustice that was done to the election in that year was reversed by Buhari. That has healed the wounds and closed the chapter about June 12. In fact the point president Muhammadu Buhari just made is that never again should anybody annul democratically conducted election”, -per – president Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu buhari has proven to be Youth friendly by signing the Not Too Young To Run Bill and introducing the N-Power initiative and other social investment programs, President Buhari deserves re-election to make sure that this projects aimed at Rebuilding Nigeria will continue,” he added.
