In?Ilorin sensitised the people of the state to participate and ensure a?violence free 2015 general elections. The state Coordinator of the group, Moshood Bakare, said at the inauguration of the group that a peaceful Nigeria is far better than the interest of anyone hence the need to ensure a violence free election.
He told the gathering that the group is working for the success of the presidential ambition of Gen. Mohammedu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bakare called on Nigerians to see now as a period of change, asking them to participate in the democratic process that can bring the change they are yearing for. ?This is a right we have; we must all come out to vote? ?This is an pportunity that come every four years, we are looking forward to?Feb. 14? Bakare said.
Also addressing the gathering, the Publicity Coordinator of the group, Nasiru Abdulkadri, he said the year?s democratic process is a movement that is expected to bring a change that Nigerians are yearning for. He said the group has no party affiliation but a cause for all Nigerians even if it is supporting the presidential ambition of Gen. Buhari.
Abdulkadri added that the qualification to be part of the BSO is to be patriotic to know that the country cannot continue the way it is now. ?The importance of BSO is that if you belong to the PDP or any other part, we will collapse and work for a better Nigeria? ?If you are supporting Buhari, you are supporting progress, integrity, discipline and advancement of human race? Abdulkadri said. He expressed the believe that the elections would be peaceful taking into account the peace accord signed by the presidential candidates of different political parties. Abdulkadri appreciated the fact that President Goodluck Jonathan said elections are not about killing.
The state Change Agent of the group, Mrs Risikat Abdullahi, said BSO would soon embark on door to door campaign for the emergence of Gen. Buhari as the president of the country. She called on women to play active role in the 2015 general elections saying such means building a better?tomorrow?for their children.
