Buhari promises to create jobs through mining, agriculture

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has promised to create job opportunities through agriculture and mining, if elected.

Mr. Buhari made the promise while addressing a rally in Osogbo.

According to him, his administration will focus on agriculture and mining as a way to secure jobs for able Nigerians.

“There is a cycle of insecurity, unemployment and corruption in the country which I will break when elected next month’’, he said.

He, however, called on Nigerians and party faithful to collect their voter cards and ensure that their votes count during the polls.

Mr. Buhari said the electorate owed it to the country to vote and make the required change to happen.

Earlier, Rauf Aregesola of Osun State called on the people to exercise their franchise because the forthcoming elections would be different.

Mr. Aregbesola said the PDP had been ruling the nation for 16 years and that next elections were for “the liberation of the nation.’’

The national chairman of APC, John Oyegun, while presenting Mr. Buhari to the people, said he would remove bad governance, corruption and insecurity in the country.

    How?Buhari and all HIS Supporters are on a FAILED PROJECT.
    Graduate Employment Data 1983 – 1985 Under Buhari.
    Sunday Times, February 17, 1985.
    Out of 92,116 graduates (including Nigerians who studied abroad and HND holders) who graduated in 1983, only 21,026 were able to secure jobs as at 1985.
    Worse is that fact that out of the 20 % employed, the public sector employed 85% While the private sector employed a paltry 15%.
    One wonders how the economy survived then?
    Buhari was head of state all through the period under review.
    That is a chilling 77% unemployed almost 2 years after graduation. That must have been a record.
    How can Buhari who hasn’t worked since 1985 know how to improve employment?
    Vote Buhari for 100% unemployment.
    Vote Buhari who has been unemployed since 1985 (30yrs unemployed)
    No way sir. We stick with GEJ!

      Reno OmOKAFOR how now? Today na WAZOBI ko? From Ademola Arowosaye/Akinwande Kolawole to Abdullahi Adamu to Okafor Emeka Reno Omokri is really roving for Oga! I know you have to justify your budget. keeping spendng. You are a good clown.

      • Okafor Emeka

        Are you not ashamed of your self?

        • endingNaija

          RenOKAFOR Omokri, anger is unhealthy, it will make you more sick. Join me in ushering out of Abuja to Otuoke, the outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan.

        Can you ever be more imaginative than calling everybody, including your father, Reno Omoikiri…

    the gullible Yoruba Youths who hardly read newspapers, ‪#‎JihadistBuhari‬abolished free feeding at all tertiary institutions in Nigeria 32 years ago today.
    The semi-illiterate Fulani immigrant, under the pro-Islam, pro-Slavery and pro-Fulani APC, wants to give daily meals to jobless youths, salaries to the jobless youths, stipends to poor families, NYSC allowance to be raised to N50, 000, and free education at all stages from primary to tertiary.
    The promises are nothing but a ruse to lead on the gullible and barbarians Yoruba Youths to vote APC. Let’s ask Buhari how many jobless people are in his native North? How is he going to raise money in his native North to pay jobless youths and poor families from his native North?
    Buhari and his Hausa/Fulani people considered pork and alcohol as Haram. The Yoruba, however, consumes pork as well as alcohol after paying appropriate tax. It will be interesting to know if Jihadist Buhari will use part of the revenue collected from eating pork and drinking beers in Yorubaland to fund his free education in part of his native North as well as pay poor families stipends?
    What Buhari and his Jihadist Gambari want is obviously clear: the control of the Yoruba economic wealth and South-South oil wealth for the use of the Gambari.
    A voter that votes in ignorance forges the chains that bind him.
    On 14th February when you go to the polls ‪#‎VoteJonathan‬.

    • endingNaija

      Reno Akinwande Kolawole Omokri, how now? How body? You be witch? You don enter “Yoruba” body again? Na wa o . Wonder no go end for naija. Renowande Omokri!

      • Akinwade Kolawole

        Because you are a bastard,that is why you are supporting an old bastard who killed your fathers. Come February,we will teach you and your master,Jagan lesson. We shall chase you away to Cotonou.

        • endingNaija

          Reeeeno! no vex now. I guess you are annoyed when I exposed you. But we have a truce in the signed document of all Presidential candidates not to be violent physically and with MOUTHS and KEYBOARD! Your candidate-the outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan signed the truce . So do not be VIOLENT with your mouth and keyboard! You are violent with your mouth. No be fight now. Anyway, our outgoing President-Mr. Jonathan himself knows he is gone. So kulu temper RenoKola Omokri!

  • Abdullahi Adamu

    BUHARI, are you DEAD?
    We can’t afford another YAR’ADUA saga in Nigeria.
    ‪#‎GEJ‬ till 2019 that the North will present a HEALTHY President#

    • mahmudu

      A healthy, irresponsible leadership will not win election in nigeria to come back and kill us in the north east again.

      • Abdullahi Adamu

        Greedy Yoruba leaders has tailored a trap for us to fall into. They know Buhari can’t survive one term. They have planned to return power back to south west as soon as possible. Don’t be deceived,open your eyes.

        • endingNaija

          Reno you don become witch patapata-you don become “Northerner” again? Sebi una (Goodluck Jonathan people ati PDP) no like “North”-why begin cry again? Anyway(s) RenoAbdullahi Adamu Omokri outgoing new Media adviser to outgoing President Jonathan is FULL of comedy. We are enjoying you-Reno Wendel Omokri!

        • thetwin

          I prefer the Yorubas to come back and rule rather than a GEJ who will siddon look while our people bleed in thousands.

  • Pam Daylop

    It is always very EASY to convert ‘innocent APC supporters’ especially when you meet them in person – I have won 5 of them over today alone. Simply because the grounds on which they support Buhari initially was shaky. It’s obvious some gullible APC doesn’t know Buhari as expected of an illiterate,does not have any vision. We can see how GEJ is transforming Nigeria. Buhari go and retire!

  • Ademola Arowosaye

    UI have no doubt in my mind that truth will triumph over lies. If the media could not impose Akeredolu on my good people of the sunshine state they will fail on the 14th. I have no doubt. If the media could not subvert the truth in Ekiti, they will fail again. If the media could not win any bye election for APC since 2011, they will fail again on d 14th. Yes. I have no doubt if OBJ could not impose Olurin on the people of gateway in 2011, he will fail again this time around.
    Nigerians must be resolute. Chase the baldheads out of the town. Crazy bald heads Bob marley called them.
    VIVA NIJA.

    • endingNaija

      Renomola Ademola Omokri, how body. You have transformed completely into a witch. You just love ‘Yoruba” bodies today. From Akinwande Kolawole to Ademola Arowosaye Reno Omokri na witch! Anyways na OILY 21 billion Naira Goodluch Jonathan Campaign Chop dey work. Next “Yoruba” name from Reno Wendel Omokri?

  • Sani Danladi

    I admire Rochas Okorocha and his quest for Igbo Presidency. At an APC rally in Abia he told the people that Ndi Igbo will produce the Presidency after Buhari. He warned the Yorubas and the South South not to think of it after Buhari. Im sure Bola Tinubu will smile inside his heart and say ‘Thank you’.
    I think Rochas will not sleep well that night after he made the speech. By political calculations he knows very well that the nearest route to Igbo Presidency will be a 2019 northern President and an Igbo Vice President .
    The best option for the north and Ndi Igbo is to support President Jonathan’s second tenure and then produce a younger and stronger northern candidate who will run with an Igbo as vice president in 2019.
    At 72, Buhari is too risky for the north to gamble . He obviously can’t give them a two term President. In his campaign speeches, he is already stumbling while climbing the podium and forgetting the name of his running mate. If anything happens to a Buhari President, the Bola Tinubu clan will take over power and will never pick an Igbo as Vice President.
    Frankly speaking, I think Rochas Okorocha should do a better calculation for this Igbo Presidency.

    • endingNaija

      RenoSani Danladi Omokri, still hunting for the elusive Igbo votes for the outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan? Hm hm hm -Unknown to you even our outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan is TIRED! Please joint the wind of CHANGE. It is Buhari RenoSani Danladi Omokri- Outgoing New Media Adviser to Outgoing President Goodluck Jonathan !

  • Musa Yaro

    ‪#‎Buharishowyourresult‬
    The funniest result being tendered by Buharist is his success against the Maitasine which will translate to success against Boko Haram. Is the Maitasine that fought the Nigerian army with bows and arrows being compared to tank and RPG carrying Boko Haram?

    • endingNaija

Reno Omokirikiri oti ya were, on Febuhari 14th you are most likely to enter Marker naked in Abuja .

Nigerians have made up their mind for change , the Buhari /Osinbajo Tsunami is coming . 10 million of Reno Omokirikiri will not stay on his path to VICTORY .FeBuhari 14 is a date with your destiny.

    • Julea

      Nigerian politics has never been anything other than a bundle of deceit ever since independence, the islamonazis just will not stand for progress, they prefer boko haram and the human rights violating and degrading sharia.

  • Okafor Emeka

    Don’t pretend about it, ur support for Buhari means support for boko haram. We can’t give in to boko haram, we must achieve Victory for GEJ.

    • ola

      Go to court

  • the truth

    It would be nice if buhari handlers can present his certificate for all to see. This certifigate scandal won’t go easy and can’t be washed away. There are PDP supporters and there are APC supporters and there are neutrals like myself, we want to know for a fact if these weighty allegations are true on buhari not having a certificate. We are watching

  • Julea

    If Nigerians really want change they must not vote for islamic leaders who are aligned with the idea that sharia is a viable governance system, since it amounts to a gross violation of human rights and is designed to degrade and destroy humanity. This is the problem of Nigeria, too many muslims and too many of those war violently radical. It means that the ordinary peace loving muslim and the balance of the kuffars must unite against islamic ascendancy in Nigeria. Islam has to be subdued, as in Boko Haram, but this is impossible because there are too many muslims in the military and security apparatus.

  • dasetima

    Let us assume that jonathan has not performed up to the expectations of average Nigerian as some aggrieved people will say. If a PhD holder can not satisfy the needs of Nigerians in four years, what difference will a first school leaving certificate holder do to solve the predicament we find ourselves today? Remember, whatever problem the current president is battling with was caused by these primary school leavers, giving them power at this point will appear like taking Nigeria another 20yrs backward.

    If I want to be neutral today, I will advice that we do away with these current sets of politicians from presidency to the least local government chairman. The opposition should also not be left out, the current agitators of change are part and parcel of our problems, giving them the opportunity to rule will be tantamount to going back to our own vomit.

    However, this feat cannot be achieved within the time frame at our disposal. In this case,I will suggest that we vote for president Goodluck Jonathan come Feb. 14,2015 and then hold him by the jugular come 2019 to transfer power to well deserved youths of this beautiful country.

    Some will argue that the president will refuse to transfer power to the younger generation. With this I will employ you to go back to history where you will discover that we have a listening president, the type that heeds to the yearnings to popular opinions. we will also hold him by his words, He promised in ibadan few days ago that power will be transferred to the youths which he claimed is the current fear of our politicians.

    I will at this point encourage every Nigerian come Feb. 14th 2015 to vote wisely bearing in mind that the future of Nigeria should not be compromised for a simple pot of porridge. I rest my case.

    An over developed sense of entitlement. He’s not a bad man sha, may be that is why the business community is pushing him to nudge the government towards selling out. So it wont look like a greed driven attempt to take all the good things the country has left. He has lost a lot of money over trying to help this country sha. I dont blame him.
