PDM leader wants Buhari to form unity government

President Muhammadu Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM, gubernatorial candidate in Kano State, Ishaq Bashir, has advised the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to form a government of national unity where other parties are included.

Mr. Bashir said Mr. Buhari needed to do so in order to have divergent ideas and contributions from professionals across Nigeria.

“General Buhari should be resolute, patient, and firm in taking decisions that is why we decided to vote for him although we are a different part,” Mr. Bashir said.

He said the PDM had supported the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the presidential elections.

“We knew who Buhari is and we knew what he can do, but despite his doggedness he still requires a competent team to be able to achieve and succeed in his government,” he said.

Mr. Bashir criticised the outgoing governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso, saying while the APC government had achieved in some areas, there were several untouched areas.

“How can you build a fly over with such a high amount of money?” Mr. Bashir asked. “Or some five kilometer roads in each of the 44 local government areas (where) money has been paid and the job has not been done; or you just spent people’s money in the names of providing street light for them at a high cost.”

    President elect should not listen to Ishaq Bashir with his crafty agenda. This is not parliamentarial Government where other parties come together to form Government. Two, there is no crises of confidence to demand Government of Unity. We, Nigerians have voted for CHANGE and CHANGE has come to Nigeria. Crafty people should allow the President elect to form his Government to fulfil his Election promises. His election promises are quite different from the other parties promises to Nigerians. We trust GMB that is why we voted him as our President. He used APC vehicle to achieve this objective not PDM. No to NATIONAL UNITY GOVERNMENT that will mess up GMB and APC. It is where they will eat that Ishaq Bashir is looking for and APC and GMB are not for eating,they are to serve as GMB said in his acceptance speech. NO CORRUPTION OR ACCIDENT OF CORRUPTION. Bringing other unruly Parties into the Government which are not compactable with APC’s philosophy is dangerous to the campaign on corruption.

    The masses have spoken , they voted for Change, they did not vote for a mixture of PDP& PDM .
    We want to be able to hold APC to their words , when they fail ,it will take no effort to flush them out , when they succeed they will win another election. Mr Ishaq Bashir go and prepare your party for next election.
    With good Agenda you might be next winning party. NO TO UNITY GOVERNMENT.
    Unity government is a way to perpetuate corruption , and all Nigeria factors that characterize PDP.
