The APC officials who passed a vote of confidence on Buhari’s leadership qualities stressed that “he must seek re-election to continue with his good works.”

Addressing the officials at the meeting, Deputy Chairman, Gombe South of the APC, Julius Ishaya, said the meeting was purposely organised for the party to strategize towards 2019 general election.

The APC guber aspirant used the opportunity to take a swipe at the presidential ambition of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, stressing that the people of Gombe State would not be fair to Nigerians if they fail to support Buhari come 2019.

He however cautioned party officials against being lured with political appointments by the PDP government.
