Senator Babefemi Ojudu
The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babefemi Ojudu, on Saturday said looters who are afraid of being brought to justice are the ones wishing President Muhammadu Buhari dead to escape prosecution.
He stated that Buhari had so far given the country exemplary leadership and clearing the rot left behind by the 16-year rule of the Peoples Democratic Party, which he said, had damaged the economy of the nation.
Ojudu spoke while hosting leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress from the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State at his residence in Ado Ekiti.
He urged APC members in Ekiti to be united and continue aggressive mobilisation ahead of the 2018 governorship poll to wrest power from Governor Ayodele Fayose-led PDP in the state.
Ojudu said, “Our President is honest, patriotic, committed and passionate that this country must be great. Nobody can accuse the President of fraud, corruption and stealing in government.
“He is on a holiday and he can use the opportunity to check the state of his health. At my own age, I do visit my doctors to check myself, my blood pressure, my sugar level and all the rest.
“I want to assure concerned Nigerians who really love the President that he will soon be back. It is only those who have stolen our money and kept it away that are wishing him dead.
“The President will soon be back and by God’s grace, he will not die as some mischievous people wish.”
Ojudu said his longing was to guarantee solidarity of APC individuals in Ekiti and convey everyone on board to manufacture a more grounded gathering in front of the 2018 survey.
“Ekiti is a dynamic express, our kin must join the gathering of the progressives and they should dismiss the retrogressive party. Release our individuals out and activate our kin to head out the intruders in power.
“The picture of Ekiti has been battered and harmed however we are returning to repair it. Every one of us are prepared to change the administration here. The man ought to begin gathering his sacks.”
