2015 Presidency: Buhari declares Wednesday


Former presidential candidate of the de­funct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) General Muhammadu Buhari, will on Wednesday, formally declare his interest in the presidential ticket of the main opposition party in the country, All Progressives Congress (APC). The event will hold at the Eagle Square in Abuja.

Buhari’s declaration, ini­tially fixed for last Wednesday, was shelved in order to give the party’s faithful ample op­portunity to prepare for the Adamawa governorship elec­tion, which has since been aborted by the judgment of a Federal High Court in Abuja on the governorship of the state. Checks revealed that an­other presidential aspirant in the party and incumbent Kano State Governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, will make his formal declaration next week Thursday.

Addressing newsmen at the weekend, in Abuja ahead of Wednesday’s event, members of Buhari Support Group, de­clared that about 5 million sup­porters of the presidential aspi­rant across the country, would grace the occasion to show fidelity to the ambition of the APC national leader.

National Secretary of the group, Mallam Ibrahim Dauda, declared: “The epoch-making formal declaration of General Buhari next week, will witness the unprecedented attendance of not less than five million pas­sionate supporters of the Gen­eral. In fact, the Eagle Square is envisioned to be choked to capacity and overflowing, as the deluge of Buhari’s supporters will besiege the nation’s capital to demonstrate their love, sup­port and solidarity for the man whom they regard as the sym­bol of leadership change that the generality of Nigerians des­perately yearn for.”

Mallam Dauda urged the na­tional leaders of the APC to en­sure that General Buhari picks the party’s ticket, as he noted that the former presidential can­didate of the defunct ANPP and CPC in the presidential 2003, 2007 and 2011, respectively was the most formidable aspi­rant in the APC. “It is our can­did desire and mission to con­vince the entire APC members and supporters in Nigeria that General Muhammadu Buhari is indeed, the best presidential candidate for the APC in the forthcoming general elections. He has been tested and trusted; and is the only APC presiden­tial candidate that actually has the political clout, charisma and pedigree to give the Peoples Democratic Party.” (PDP) a good run for its money.”
