The re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari has received a major boost as the people of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State have vowed to vote for Mr. President in Saturday’s presidential election.
Gbaramatu Kingdom is where popular ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo alias Tompolo hails from.
A prominent chief in the kingdom and a member of Buhari Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Michael Johnny said the people of the area were tired of being in opposition, saying that they will overwhelmingly support Buhari re-election by voting for him en mass.
Johnny, who is also the APC leader in Gbaramatu Kingdom and senatorial aspirant for Delta South Senatorial District stated this on Wednesday while addressing some APC leaders from the kingdom in Warri.
He assured that the people of Gbaramatu that a vote for Buhari will bring more development to the kingdom, which was neglected by past PDP governments.
According to him, “Being a member of Presidential Campaign Council of Buhari Support Groups Committee, I know that President Muhammdau Buhari will win the Presidential election. I respect the fact that Gbaramatu indigenes are in different political parties, but my concern is that in the next democratic dispensation beginning on May 29, 2019, the Gbaramatu people cannot afford to be in opposition.”
Johnny, also the Coordinator, Delta South Canvassers for Buhari of the Delta Mainstream APC, assured that there will be peace in Gbaramatu kingdom before, during and after the elections.
He urged the people of Gbaramatu to go out and vote for Buhari and APC on Saturday, adding that Buhari is a friend of Gbaramatu kingdom.
