The political appointees from Yobe and Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) said yesterday that they were targeting 100 percent votes for president Muhammadu Buhari in the February 16 presidential election in the state.

The appointees, who arrived Damaturu ahead of the president’s campaign visit include former Minister of State Foreign Affairs and Director General of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Khadija Bukar Abba Ibrahim and Alhaji Mustapha Maihaja, respectively.

Speaking to Kanem Trust, the former minister of state foreign affairs, Khadija said they had mobilized their supporters and that had given them the confidence that they would achieve their objective.

She said they had already mobilized women folks across the state that had promised to woo more voters to fill in the remaining two percent of the 98 percent votes cast for the president in 2015.

The DG, NEMA, Alhaji Mustapha Maihaja said that now that peace has returned, because the two local government areas of Gujba and Gulani that were under Boko Haram in 2014 have been liberated, the state was targeting 100 percent votes for the president.

“With the achievement recorded by Buhari’s administration on security, the 96 percent votes the president received from Yobe in 2015 would now be 100 percent, it may not be realisable but we are targeting it,” he said.
