Ahead of the March 28 presidential election, the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO) is planning a massive rally for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) in support of his quest to become next president of Nigeria.
According to the Lagos State Coordinator of the group, Gbenga Omotuenishe, the APC was undeterred by postponement of the election as it would rather increase the popularity of the party and its candidates in the coming polls.
Meanwhile, one of the sponsors of BSO, Honourable Adebowale Collins, has said he believed in the ideology of the group that was why he was putting his money where his mouth is.
“I believe in what we are doing, I believe in change and I believe everybody has a role to play. I want a future for my children. It’s not compulsory you do things for monetary benefits.
“Sometimes you do things because you believe in an ideology. If you believe in something you do it from your heart. That is why we are so committed in our clamour for change in this country”, Collins said.
Collins expressed the confidence that come May 29, 2015 Buhari-Oshibajo would assume the mantle of leadership of Nigeria.

He stated this during an interview with Africa Independent Television AIT on Monday night.
Bello called on his fellow state governors to tack charge in their respective states so as to prevent loss of lives and properties due to attacks by hoodlums.
He, however, warned Nigerian youths to resist the temptation of using the current situation in the country to seek an undemocratic change in leadership.
The Governor warned that those interested in the presidency must wait till 2023 and go through democratic processes.
He urged the protesting youths to leave the streets and embrace dialogue.
