APC was not formed for personal aggrandizement- Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari

Mr. Buhari was represented by the CPC Chairman in Adamawa.

The leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Muhammad Buhari, said the evolution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not for personal aggrandisement, but for national cohesion.

He stated this on Wednesday at the inauguration of constituency projects by a member representing Zaria at the House of Representatives, Abbass Tajuddeen, in Zaria, Kaduna State.

Mr. Buhari, represented by CPC Chairman in Kaduna State, Ahmadu Yaro-Cocacola, said APC, if elected, was determined to foster national unity and restore hope to Nigerians.

He appealed to electorate to remain humble and peaceful during and after 2015 general election with a view to electing credible candidates into various elective positions for the good of the nation.

The former military head of state lauded the efforts of the lawmaker for bringing the dividends of democracy close to the door steps of his people and called on other members to emulate him.

In his speech, the Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Sani Sale, appealed to the people to join the wagon of what he described as liberation vanguard.

He said that CPC lawmakers had distinguished themselves in honour and service to humanity, hence the need for people to rally round the party.

Responding, Mr. Tajuddeen said that the gesture was aimed at giving all manner of people a sense of belonging, and gave the assurance that more dividends of democracy for his constituency were in the pipeline.

The ceremony featured presentation of gifts to winners of inter-primary and secondary schools quiz and football competition. It also featured the inauguration of ICT/skills acquisition centre, wall fence and solar bore holes, among others.

    Gen Buhari is not perfect (who is?) but he is a man with integrity and would be able to tackle our gross corruption seriously if he was President. However, the Northern rulers and elders have made things very difficult for Gen Buhari by insisting that a Northerner MUST rule Nigeria. This kind of “born to rule” delusion is putting off too many Southerners. I therefore think APC will have no chance if they bring Gen Buhari as presidential candidate. I voted for him in 2011 but with the now very obvious Northern agenda of wanting to rule Nigeria forever I don’t think I could again.
