Mshelia stated that his support for Buhari was based on his personality and his sincerity and commitment to moving the country forward.
Speaking to The Nation on Saturday in Lagos, the retired pilot said Buhari’s developmental ideology has put the country on the right track.
“A nation or person with no ideology is not going deliver social justice to its people. look at the work done quietly by Buhari, it’s because he does not collect kickbacks or bribe that’s why contractors dare not to deliver. Look at the railway from Warri to Abuja, go and see roads abandoned in Abuja now all completed if not near completion.
“We cannot afford to continue to allow men with no ideology to run the affairs of a country with beautiful ideology like Nigeria. See how evidently the politicians have shown themselves by the series of defection and counter defections; it’s all about them and not the country. We are wiser now and God has used Buhari to show us that indeed development is easily achieved if you elect a leader and that will not take bribe.” he said.
“Let us therefore not continue to allow the mismanagement of our dear country by people who have had inferior patriotism, knowledge and ideas to take it forward.
“Everyone needs to pool together and save our country and if every good person sits on the sidelines, the country will not get saved.” he said.
While speaking on his motivation to be the next governor of Borno State, Captain Mshelia said the current humanitarian Crisis in the state and his desire to change the narrative to his state was the motivation behind his ambition to be the next governor of the state.
“Borno has a lot to give and it would take ideas, dexterity and a hands-on approach to ensure that the state becomes viable again through its agrarian resources and trade. If harnessed right we have a comparative advantage in farm produce and we can tap into that and utilise it to develop the state.
“This is one of the reasons I have thrown my hat in the race under Labour Party.” he said.
