National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC,
Bolaji Abdullahi, has shared his reasons the Muhammadu Buhari Nigerians
voted into power in 2015 is not the same President at Aso Rock today.|
who was part of the mass defection from the ruling party, called on
Nigerians to jump out of Buhari’s train, adding that the man presiding
over the affairs of the nation today was not the leader Nigerians
trooped out enmasse to elect in 2015.
He said this Monday in a
chat with Vanguard in reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on
President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Elders’ Forum.
Director, Communications and Strategies of the PDP, Presidential
Campaign Organisation pointed out that he was not joining the cloning
debate, but insisted however, that Buhari had dumped the principles for
which he was widely adored.
He said, “Some of us risked our
political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we
have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having
realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance
“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest
supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari
we have today is not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.
Buhari most of us risked our political careers for was the Buhari whose
memory we carried with us since 1983. That Buhari had zero tolerance for
corruption and was a strong -willed leader.
“But the Buhari of
today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he
will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum
has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC)
to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
