President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday inaugurated campaign manual for his re-election in 2019 with a call on politicians to be peaceful and decent in their campaigns and avoid any act capable of setting the nation ablaze.
Speaking at the launch of the Campaign Manual/Next Level Document at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the president said the call had become imperative in view of the commencement of campaigns by political parties across the country.
“I’m not unmindful that the National Assembly and the Presidential campaign starts today, I will employ candidates to go about the campaigns peacefully and decently.
“We have no other country, let us not set it ablaze because of politics,’’ he said.
He observed that the next four years would be quite significant as the country was faced with a choice to keep building a new Nigeria- making a break from its tainted past which favored an opportunistic few.
The president said:
“We are committed to deepening the work we started this first time such that the nation’s assets and resources continue to be organized and utilized to do good for the majority of our people.
“Our choices will shape us – our economic security and our future prosperity.
According to him, Nigeria, more than ever before, needs a stable and people-focused government to move the agenda for the country forward.
