The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), on Sunday said the jubilation that followed the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari was an indication that the country had no alternation to him now.

Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo, the Chairman, South-West Chapter of the union, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that Nigerians were in happy mood with the arrival of their President.

“We believe in our president and I can tell you, categorically, that there is no alternative to Buhari in moving the country forward,” he said.

According to the Chairman, the people came out immensely to welcome him, because they believed in him to turn around the ailing economy.

“It is with happiness that Nigerians came to welcome their president, after 104 days in United Kingdom’s hospital.

“The gesture showed by Nigerians is a sign that they believe in him and they have been praying for him to recover from the illness.

“They have hope in him that he is back to turn the country’s ailing economy round.

“Everybody is happy to receive the president back in the country.”
