Presidency reacts to Service Chiefs' walk out during Buhari's 2019 campaign launch

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari said he has delivered on his promises to improve security the economy and tackle corruption as campaigning for next year's election kicked off on Sunday

President Buhari had on Sunday inaugurated campaign manual for his re-election in 2019 with a call on politicians to be peaceful and decent in their campaigns and avoid any act capable of setting the nation ablaze.

The party dismissed the "Next Level" campaign adopted by Buhari's 2019 slogan, noting that the president failed to deliver on his promises.

According to the minister, the Buhari led government has laid the foundation for economic growth of Nigeria, judiciously utilized its first term in office by achieving more with less resources and has re-strategized to take the country to the next level, declaring that the country had recorded rapid infrastructural development across the country under President Muhammadu. "You are a country of great diversity, and we enjoyed our stay here", Reddy told the President.

The president however says actions like placing all government revenues and funds recovered in corruption investigations into the Treasury Single Account (TSA), have buffered the country from oil dependency.

"Corruption is an existential threat to Nigeria".

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that Nigeria can not survive another four years under the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government following the withdrawal of General Electric (GE) from a $2.8 billion railway concession deal due to the harsh economic policies of the administration.

"From all indications, it is clear that there is no way our economy can survive if the Buhari administration is allowed to be on the saddle for another four year", PDP stated.

"We are committed to deepening the work we started this first term such that the nation's assets and resources continue to be organised and utilised to do good for the common man", he said at the manifesto launch. Nigeria is faced with a choice to keep building a new Nigeria - making a break from its tainted past which favoured an opportunistic few.

"We will remodel 10,000 schools every year and retain our teachers to impart science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics using coding, animation, robotics to re-interpreter our curriculum".

"Our choices will shape us - our economic security and our future prosperity".

Up to 60 percent of Nigeria's more than 180 million people are aged under 30, and the country is expected to become the world's third most populous by 2050.
