Rep. Zephania Jisalo, member representing Amac/ Bwari Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives has urged All Progressives Congress (APC) executives in his constituency to mobilise support for President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Jisalo, who made the appeal on Wednesday during a meeting with the party executives in Amac and Bwari, also presented some empowerment materials such as cars, motorcycles, grinding engines and wrappers.
He said even though Buhari had advised his supporters to play by the INEC rules and to desist from campaign until the appropriate time, the supporters had the responsibility to enlighten the voters on the president’s achievements so far and the need to consolidate in 2019.
Jisalo also enjoined party faithful across Nigeria to ignore those defecting to the opposition parties.
He promised to provide a similar empowerment support across the six area councils in FCT to enable the party executive to work effectively.
Jisalo said the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria recognised the President as the Governor of FCT.
“Even though the president relinquishes such right to the FCT minister, every APC party executive and supporter has a responsibility to educate the electorate on Buhari’s achievements in the FCT,’’ Jisalo said.
