A youth movement under the auspices of Jagaban Movement has thrown its weight behind the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re-election in 2019.

According to Adegboyega, the second term bid of the president has become necessary considering his unwavering commitment to anti-graft war and massive infrastructure programs with the attendants employment generation .
“We are convinced beyond reasonable doubt that, the path to a safer tomorrow, the ground for massive employment of human and non-human resources of Nigeria has began its setting by this present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“In view of this, Jagaban movement has observed the commitment of Mr. President to increasing capital vote releases which will engender massive infrastructure with the attendants employment generation and would not allow such desire to be wasted without full optimization hence the support for Mr. President to seek re-election.
“Finally, as we move closer to electioneering season, the JM youths crave for more brutal fight against corruption and urge the Judiciary to join the 21st Century anti-corruption crusade of Mr. President,” the statement read.
Similarly, the movement commended the Lagos government for its developmental strides in the state, adding that the development in Lagos in the last one and half decade has shown that capital votes dedication of the government of Lagos has continuously be on the rise.
