A presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress APC, Sam Nda-Isaiah, has postponed his formal declaration for the presidential election by one week, a statement by his campaign outfit, Sam for Nigeria Presidential Campaign Organization, said on Saturday.
The event, according to the statement will now hold November 4 instead of October 28.
It will, however, still hold at the Mini Polo Ground, Old Airport Road, Minna, Niger State by 11am.
“Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah deeply regrets the inconveniences this postponement will cause his teeming supporters, all media organizations, political associates and the general public, who have all shown their support for his bid to rescue Nigeria from its current state,” the statement by David Chinda said.
It also said that the presidential hopeful, who is the founder of the Leadership newspapers, deeply appreciated the massive support that had been pouring in from all over the nation for his Presidential aspiration.
The statement said, “This shows that Nigerians are all clamouring for purposeful change for a new direction in the country. Sam Nda-Isaiah, offers a vision for the future of Nigerians and not the experience of the past.
“He offers a suite of big ideas that he truly believes would revolutionize the various sectors of the economy and propel Nigeria into being a first world nation. Sam truly believes that you cannot achieve much as a nation unless the citizens are united and that is what he intends to do first and achieving that will not require $20 Billion.”
It stated that Mr. Nda-Isaiah was humbled by the outpouring of support “and further invites the general public to join him on Tuesday, the 4th of November 2014 at the Mini Polo Ground, Old Airport Road, Minna, Niger State by 11am as he declares for his presidential bid”.
Two aspirants on the APC platform, namely Muhammadu Buhari, a former head of state and Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, have already made their intention formally known.
They have also picked the party’s expression of interest and nomination forms, both of which cost N27.5 million.
