President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that the support he enjoys from the Coalition of Progressive Political Parties, CPPP, has continued to boost his morale and the zeal to continue to do more.
Buhari made the declaration on Friday when he hosted the group at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The coalition had expressed its support for the candidacy of President Buhari for next month’s election, just as it also did before the 2015 poll.
“I am happy with your decision to continue to support us. I respect your consistency from 2015 to date. Your belief in one Nigeria is admirable. This visit has raised my morale; you support us quietly, without noise, and it encourages us to press on,” the president said.

Leader of the coalition group, Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, said the endorsement of President Buhari for a second term in office was due to the many successes of the administration, including, strides in the fight against insurgency; efforts to redress the country’s huge infrastructural deficit; and the fight against corruption, among others.
He pledged that the coalition would campaign for President Buhari round the country and confront fake news with facts and figures.
He added that a formal declaration of their support would be made soon.
