2015: Buhari’s loyalists pledge to buy APC nomination form for him

Muhammadu Buhari, APC presidential candidate

The Bauchi State Chapter of the Buhari Campaign Organisation has pledged to buy nomination form for a former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).

Danjuma Dabo, the Coordinator of The Nigerian Solution Network Group, made the disclosure on Saturday in Bauchi during a solidarity rally in support of Mr. Buhari.

Mr. Dabo said whether Mr. Buhari was willing to contest in the 2015 polls or not, the organisation would source for fund to foot both the campaign bills and purchase the nomination form for him.

The coordinator of the group, who said the N27 million fee for the purchase of nomination form was too high, added that it was above Mr. Buhari’s financial capability.

He then urged party supporters to contribute funds for activities and to enable the organisation to raise fund for the former head of state.

Also Bala Jibrin, a retired captain and guest speaker at the rally, faulted suggestions in some quarters that Mr. Buhari was tribalistic.

Mr. Jibrin described Buhari as “a statesman who refused to associate with those playing tribal or religious politics’’.

He assured that if elected, Mr. Buhari would salvage the country from its current state of insecurity, agricultural backwardness and revive other sectors of the nation.

He said it was the right time for the electorate to try people like Mr. Buhari, who he stressed would bring the country out of its current woes.

He called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct credible election come 2015.

The retired captain said it was time for the nation’s electoral body to redeem its image in the interest of political stability of the country.
