A former Governor of Bauchi State, Malam Isa Yuguda, has said his group will mobilise five million voters to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid.
Yuguda, who is the chairman of the group, Miners for Buhari/Osinbajo (M4BO), said the effort of the President Buhari-led administration in the mining sector was taking Nigeria out of doldrums, hence the resolve of miners to support the government.
At a press briefing in Abuja, Yuguda said, “Based on series of consultation, we have seen the need for miners in Nigeria to come together and support the programme of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to succeed in the forthcoming general elections,” he said.
Yuguda said as a result of the enabling policies/reforms that were brought in by this administration in the mining sector, over five million miners had taken to the field.
The convener of the event, Alhaji Saleh Katsina, said revenue generation in the mining sector had improved from N2.08bn in 2015 to N3.92bn in 2017.

We have records to show how Buhari, APC rigged presidential election – Buba Galadima
Buba Galadima, Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organisation, has revealed how the incumbent government allegedly rigged last month’s presidential election to retain its grip on power.
Galadima, an estranged ally of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of using the military to intimidate voters and inflate election results in its favour.
He spoke on Wednesday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.
Galadima said the events in Rivers State were evidence of the intimidation.
“It is not an accusation, the military are good candidates of the International Criminal Court. I saw it on television where they were going to houses killing people,” the Atiku spokesperson said.
He claimed that records are available to show that Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, won the presidential election.
“They said they won and want to go to court to inspect the election materials, that is clearly to show they rigged the election.
“I am speaking with authority and I can defend it in the court of law. Have you ever heard that a respondent went to court to check the results of an election because he was not sure his agents did the right thing?” he said.
