Buhari spoke through APC spokesman in South-East zone, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, yesterday after a road show in Enugu to sensitize the people on how he intended to run a transparent government, and Vanguard Newspaper was at the event.
He added that Buhari would inaugurate the National Council on Procurement as stipulated in the Procurement Act.
He also assured Igbo nation that he stood by his pledge to revamp coal in Enugu, if elected as President, noting that his word was his bond.
He said: “Buhari is very passionate to create jobs for our youths and strongly feels that the best way to create jobs in this region is to revamp Enugu coal, which has been abandoned since the civil war.”
On the issue of insurgency and insecurity, Okechukwu said Buhari served the country meritoriously in the military to the highest level, and recalled how he crushed the Maitasine insurgents, a violent rabid sect like Boko Haram and chased away Chadian Army.
