APC condemns attacks on Buhari

The North-West zone of All Progressive Congress (APC) has condemned the issues being raised over President Muhammadu Buhari’s health and vacation, saying it was unwarranted and unpatriotic.

In a statement after its meeting in Katsina on Monday, the party said the issues smacked of desperation of the opposition parties.

It said that the zone had declared total support to Buhari’s administration, in its bid to move the nation forward.

“The meeting emphasized the need for members of the National Assembly from the North-West to fully support the president in his effort to provide responsive leadership to Nigeria,” the statement signed by National Vice Chairman, North-West, Inuwa Abdulkadir, said.

“The meeting called on north-west zonal leadership of the party to engage members of the national assembly, ministers, and heads of government agencies to ensure that policies and programmes fall in line with the party’s manifesto.”

“The meeting emphasized the need for elected and appointed public officeholders to undertake periodic consultation with constituents to enlighten them on government policies and programmes, and at the same time, receive feedback for effective service delivery.

“The meeting reiterated its support to seven governors in the North-West region in their effort toward economic integration of the region within the context of the north-west economic cooperation and integration framework,” the communiqué said.

The party also appreciated the seven states in the zone for their initiative at identifying high development priority areas like education, healthcare, agriculture, water resources, energy, solid minerals and industrialization.

It called on party members to rise in the defence of the hard-won but overwhelming mandate of the majority of Nigerians by eschewing all forms of internal conflict and division.

“We should appreciate the need to rally round our leaders and for the leaders to carry all members along in flying the flag of APC,” the communiqué said. (NAN)

    Any time from now Buhari is expected to be in his office at Aso Rock. The presidency assured us that Buhari is not sick and not in any hospital. We don’t know why there should be any controversy about his 10 day vacation. We pray that he comes soon to bring the prosperity he promised us.

      He can allay people’s fears by speaking out live to show that he’s okay. Posting still photos does not help anything.

    APC: “It said that the zone had declared total support to Buhari’s administration, in its bid to move the nation forward.”

    How does the nation move forward when even Northerners (Shiites and Southern Kaduna indigenes) are being killed willy nilly whilst El Rufai and Buhari act as if they are worthless lives?

    • aboki

      The killing in Southern Kaduna is not a one way traffic and regrettably in all perspectives.
      Please WAILERS concentrate in your BIAFRA REPUBLIC agenda as seen in OKAFO activities in Lagos Port.

        These gun needs to be everuwhere, don’t you think so. One religion killing will only stop, when they know that the next house have what they have

        What about the following?
        Why always the so called “Foreign Fulani Herdsmen”?
        1. Delta : “The latest news reaching us is that .Fulani herdsmen have also invaded #Obiaruku community in #Delta State and kidnapped 8 farmers.”
        2. Benue : “Moor in Kwande local government area is now an occupied territory. Herdsmen have sacked the inhabitants from their ancestral homes and taken over the council ward,” a government source said. “All the local government clinics, including 21 primary and secondary schools in the area, have been completely destroyed. The indigenes of the community are refugees in other communities.”

        3. Imo : “There is palpable fear in Imo State as thousands of Fulani cattle herdsmen invaded two communities in the State, raising fear and tension. The communities are Umukabia in Ngor Okpala and Umuedo in Ahiazu local government areas of Imo State.”

        4. Enugu : ” Anxiety and confusion has enveloped Abbi Community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area, Enugu State, following the invasion of the area by Fulani herdsmen who unleashed mayhem on the people, killing a brother and sister apart from razing down about seven houses and several motorcycles.
        Altogether, 19 persons were declared missing in the community even as several others were also wounded with machetes by the invaders. It was gathered that the Fulani herdsmen numbering over 30 emerged from the bush, and began to attack the people in the community last Thursday, killing their victims and maiming others with machetes ”

        5. Ekiti: “Assailants suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Friday evening invaded Oke Ako in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State killing two people and injuring three.
        The assailants, numbering about 20, stormed the sleeping town around 8 p.m and unleashed terror on the residents.

        After the onslaught, one person died instantly, while four others that sustained gunshots and machete wounds were taken to the hospital in a police vehicle.

    Buhari is one man in apc party, they don’t need represent buhari. If the public is to believe what they are saying, any media in England can post a TV interview with buhari. Nigerians demand to know health of buhari, condemnations won’t cut it.

    • princegab

      Thanks bro, by their fruit, you know them. NW is pretending that they love pmb and could not just televise the state of the President in vacation to do Nigerian a favour. What a pity.

  • Nathan D. Satan

    Why is Buhari’s “vacation” couched in secrecy?
    Do Nigerians have the right to know the truth so as to avoid another Yar’Adua type situation?
    What is really going on here?
    Why is the administration not telling the people anything about this medical vacation?

    • No-Comment

      “In the President, in whom much hope was invested and misery was reaped, the man died.
      In the President, who made promises of alleviating poverty during campaign but rather
      exacerbates the level of hunger in the land, the man died. In the President who
      promised to declare his assets but goes to odious lengths to explain why he
      could not do it any longer, the man died. In the President who promised to
      reduce the cost of petrol but ended up increasing it astronomically,
      the man died. In the President who promised to increase the
      value of our Naira but rather devalued it beyond recognition,
      the man died”.

    All those attacking PMB are the useless Nigerians who have been feeding fat on Nigeria since independence but now those sources of free monies have dried up under PMB. I am a SW Christian and fully supports PMB’s policies. How many Nigerian ex presidents have empowered artisans, set up school feeding programs, giving welfare money to poor people of our society, fought BY with all his powers, applied recovered looks to 2017 budget and many other positive policies? I urge Lai Mohamed to aggressively publish on a monthly basis all the achievements of PMB’s administration. The people that looted/stole more money under jonathan were mainly northern and southern Christians and it’s all these criminals who have stolen so much money are the ones fighting PMB. I will rather have Buhari at the saddle rather than all these cult criminal politicians who have no single allegiance to Nigeria. The recent arms detected in Lagos is a proof that Mr. President is working. These arms if they get to the public would have killed thousands of Nigerians. We Nigerians are hypocrites. All these criminals like fani Kayode, fayose, wike, markarfi and other blood sucking politicians don’t want development for Nigeria period.

      No one cares if you a SW or NW Christian. All we care is the fact that many are dying of hunger and nothing is working in the country. If you are truly a Christian then you ought not to be lying because Jesus Christ himself said those who lie belong to their father the devil. Jesus also said that all liars shall have their lot in the lake that burns with fire (hell). What you have just written here does not tell us that you are a Christian and if you are, then you need to be born again. There are many who claim they are Christians but are really not Christians. They go to church, alright but they are not converted. From your right-up here, you are yet to be converted. Repent before it is too late

      You’re wrong there brother, come to orange market in mararaba of nassarawa state and say “SAI BABA” and pause for reaction, then you will realize that those who are fed-up with this promise breaking and inept government are those at the receiving end, those who used to be able to fill their stomachs with N300 a day but with the cost of rice and other food stuff on the rise at supersonic speed i begin to ask how will these hard working youths who celebrated the victory of this government with the joy of prisoners being set free, how will they survive the coming hardship as foretold by your clueless finance minister and agriculture minister? that is why they attack this administration.

    • AlBsure23

      You have a very very low IQ.

    • Owoeye Gbenga

      If you are a southwest Christian and you are supporting Buhari that means you are a bastard.Omo ale ni e. O ti ku,sugbon won o tii gbe o sin.It showa you are happy the way Fulani Herdsmen have been supported by your mentor to kill Christians all over the country.

    they will die before Buhari and he will condole with their family

    Nigeria is the only democracy in the world where citizens have no right to know the state of health of their president. Nigeria is the only democracy in the world where a medical certificate of fitness is not needed to contest for president and any high office in the country. Nigeria is the only country in the world where mediocrity trumps sanity. Nigeria is the only country in the world where a dead president signs checks for six months before his death is announced. Nigeria is the only country where political patronage trumps national interest and patriotism. Nigeria is the only country where a presidential spokespersons and information minister lie without shame. Nigeria is the only country in the world where handlers of the president tell the citizens the president owes no one an explanation of the reasons why he goes to a foreign country. World leaders spend their vacations in their countries but Nigeria is the only country where a president spends his vacation in England or another developed country. To the shame of these charlatans, they want us to support a party that is full of deceit and lies. Why APC Northwest? Is the president a sectional or national leader. This is why this country has not and cannot develop. Enough of this nonsense. Please tell us what is going on with our president. Asking is not hating or wishing the president dead. We want to see him back to Nigeria alive but please don’t deceive us that is is sound and and in good health when he is on a life support machine! Some decency and decorum is needed here.

    Buhari wants PUBLIC office, but he does not want his activities to be PUBLIC.
