Olujuwon whose recent marriage to promoter of Premier Lotto known as “Baba Ijebu”, Sir Kessington Adebutu’s daughter, Tope, is on the brink, in a two page statement he released, spoke of his support for Buhari’s reelection, an aspiration his father openly opposed.

The statement reads in part: “I would humbly and strongly appeal that we all embrace and support Buhari’s government in his aggressive, relentless pursuit of equitable distribution of wealth and resources to the masses to aid the growth and development of our nation. He is seriously improving and empowering local farmers, industrialists, the women, the SME and businessmen.”

“The government is serious about development and has given new life to the steel industry and the Buhari Administraiton is determined to industrialise our nation and to make us a producing nation and the revival of the Ajaokuta Steel Complex and completion of the baro and Lokoja ports are examples.

“The current administration has sought to address our importation of petroleum products through the relocation of refineries. These are few examples, a whole book is needed to put the achievement and successes of the current administration into details. The current administration has invested more in education, health, agriculture, security, road infrastructural development to aid the growth of the economy despite receiving less revenue.

“The ingenuity of the current administration in proffering solutions is highly commendable. No human is perfect, no government is perfect, only the Creator of heaven and earth embodies perfection. We are on the right path and should not deviate.

“The youths of our great nation should join hands and support the progress and giant strides of President Buhari, he is working commendably to free us from past bondage and captivity. “We are on the right path but we must not go back into bondage again.

“I am calling on the youths of our nation to let us work together to return President Buhari to power in 2019.”
