Buhari, Atiku plot PDP fall in Kaduna

Hassan Ibrahim -Kaduna

As part of efforts by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North to approach the 2015 presidential election as a united front, presidential aspirants on the platform of the party and other party chieftains met in Kaduna on Saturday to renew their strategy on how to defeat President Goodluck Jonathan.
Specifically, an aspirant and former head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari told the gathering that should the Jonathan-led Federal Government be allowed to continue in 2015,Nigeria would go down the drain.
In the same vein, representatives of the Arewa Consultative Forum(ACF) and that of the Northern Elders Forum(NEF), Mr Solomon Dalung and Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed respectively, have admonished APC presidential aspirant not to vie for the exalted office just to satisfy their families and pockets but to work for the development of Nigeria.
The duo threatened to disown anyone amongst them who decided to turn into a selfish leader, saying they would rather remain with the Nigerian masses.
Buhari, who spoke for himself and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar during the APC stakeholders meeting, said 2015 was another year of extreme concern to Nigerians calling on APC chieftains not to allow their members to be disenfranchised during the 2015 elections.
The APC, he said, was now in a better position to wrestle power from the PDP, urging for vigilance among APC members to check all manipulations.
He said “I contested the presidential election three times in this country and failed and ended up in supreme court, losing the case. The first time, the Judges agreed that there was no election, they (the judges) were all Southern Christians. The second time, the Judges that declared the PDP winner despite clear irregularities were Fulani from Adamawa and Taraba and another Nupe man. That was when I understood it is not about religion and ethnicity, but about Naira and Dollars.”
 He said the amount of soldiers, police, SSS deployed to Ekiti during the election, if same were to be deployed to the troubled North-East, the release of the over 200 abducted Chibok girls would have long been secured.
“Nigeria is tired of incompetent leadership, so we must be ready to make sacrifices that will salvage the country, let us not allow our people to be disenfranchised during the elections, we must be united to ensure free, fair and credible elections in 2015.
