Buratai for President: Group seeks support from Emir of Keffi
A political and socio-economic support group called ‘Fusion 774′ on Tuesday, visited the Emir of Keffi, Alhaji Shehu Yamusa III to seek his support in calling on Nigeria’s envoy to the Benin Republic, Ambassador TY Buratai to enter the 2023 presidential race.
Mr. Sadik Jikta, the group’s coordinator, told the traditional ruler of their objective and solicited for his fatherly blessings and counsel.
Jikta said, “We’ve come to meet you, Your Royal Highness, since the Ambassador is a tenant in your domain. “Amb. Buratai performed valiantly as Chief of Army and led the Nigerian military in reclaiming all regions previously controlled by Boko Haram terrorists,” the Coordinator said, he added stating that Amb. Buratai instituted reforms and fiscal discipline inside the Nigerian Army, which improved the institution’s effectiveness.
“The Ambassador has thus far refused to listen to our and other Nigerians’ calls for him to declare, but we feel that your intervention will change that.”
Responding, Emir of Keffi, Yamusa conveyed his gratitude to the group for visiting his palace.
“I learned about your group and your work through the news. I’d also like to express my gratitude for making the time to come visit me as your first stopover for fatherly guidance.
“All I can say is that we will consider your request and determine the best course of action. May Allah’s blessings be with you all,” the monarch added.
