A socio-cultural group, Bring Back Buhari Maritime (BBBMCG), says the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari for second-term will enhance rapid growth in the maritime sector and the economy at large.
Uchechukwu Aniezechukwu, the National Chairman of BBBMCG, said this in a statement on Monday in Lagos.
The group comprises of Odua Maritime Group, Igbo Maritime Group and Arewa Maritime Group in the maritime sector.
Aniezechukwu congratulated the president, saying his re-election demonstrated the belief of Nigerians in the administration, especially in its efforts to re-shape the country’s ailing economy.
“Buhari deserves a second term based on his performances in the critical sectors of the country’s economy including agriculture, security, infrastructural development in the transport sector, rail sector, oil and gas sector, ICT sector and maritime sector.
“His re-election is a vote of confidence from Nigerians to continue with his economic diversification agenda programme,” he said.
Aniezechukwu said that the administration’s effort in fighting corruption, creating jobs for graduates through N-Power, social intervention scheme s like Tradermoni, among other initiatives, had impacted positively on the country’s economy.
He said that Buhari’s second-term would be critical in unifying the country in terms of peace and unity as well as instilling investors’ confidence in the Nigerian economy.
