The Speaker of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Onofiok Luke, has said that he will support President Muhammadu Buhari for re-election in 2019.

Luke, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), also praised Buhari for his war against corruption.

He made the comments during a recent radio interview in Uyo, the state capital.

“I thank God that he has been able to put that fear in public officials when they handle public finances. For that, I give kudos to President Buhari,” Luke said according to Premium Times.

“If he continues this way and does a few other things, I think he will be assured of my vote for a second term. Mr. President should put it (the anti-corruption war) side by side with economic recovery. He is the president of my country, and he is anointed by God to run this country, so I give him my support," he added.
