Presenting the cheque at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja on Wednesday, Sanusi Musa, coordinator of the group, said the decision to buy the form was informed by the need to consolidate on the foundation for a better Nigeria.
He said the group was on the front line calling on the president to seek re-election.
“We cannot afford to go back to Egypt. We cannot afford to destroy the future of our children,” Sanusi said.
“The foundation laid by President Muhammadu Buhari must be reinforced. We believe in the leadership of President Buhari, we count on him to consolidate the good work he has started for another four more years.
“It is for this reason Mr. Chairman, we have decided to pull our meagre resources together and purchase the expression of interest and nomination forms for President Buhari as he present himself to our party members to be chosen as its candidate for the 2019 general election.
“Our members from various villages, local governments and states have contributed to making this happen.
“We have no doubt that Mr. President has both in action and word being working lay a foundation for greater and prosperous nation that our generation and future generation will be proud of. Under his administration Nigeria has become a country sought after for investment in the world. Nigeria has assumed its leadership role in not just Africa but the world.”
