- The crisis rocking the ruling APC has been condemned by Buhari Campaign Organisation
- The organisation is worried that the ruling party's leadership has allowed crisis fester in the APC less than a year to the 2019 general elections
- They however informed of their plans to organise a 3-million march for President Buhari
The Buhari Campaign Organisation (BCO) has queried the APC for allowing crisis within its fold to fester less than a year to the 2019 general elections.
The BCO, however, said it has concluded plans to organise a three-million women and youths march in Abuja, to showcase the achievements and canvass votes for President Muhammadu Buhari's re-election.
Addressing the executive members of the BCO, Market Men and Women Association of Nigeria, in Abuja on Tuesday, May 22, its national coordinator, Alhaji Danladi Pasali, said the organisation would do everything legitimately to return President Buhari in 2019.
He claimed that there were several plots to tarnish President Buhari's image and frustrate his government, stating that the issue of killer herdsmen was part of the numerous plots to stop Buhari's re-election.
“The change agenda has started and it's not the time to pocket billions of Naira. But corruption is fighting back. The issue of herdsmen is an agenda to destabilise the system,” he said.
The BCO chairman of Board of Trustees (BoT), Engrineer Markus Gundiri, blamed the APC as a party for getting entangled in internal crisis in a pre-election year.
His words: “The APC has gone into so many problems, I don't know why. But we are going to campaign for him (Buhari) for the primaries and for his re-election. Don't get tired, there are so many things we need to do. We need to mobilise and reach out to all the voting units of this country,” he said.
At the event, Hajiya Folashade Tinubu was honoured at the occasion and presented with a certificate as Women Leader to steer the role of mobilising women for Buhari's re-election.
In her speech, Hajiya Tinubu, who is the daughter of prominent APC leader, Aiswaju Bola Tinubu, called on all women to help her deliver on her mandate.
Meanwhile, 17 registered political parties in the country have announced the formation of a new alliance to adopt one candidate in the 2019 presidential election.
The political parties launched the alliance recently under the title “G21,” even as they disclosed they are still open to admitting new entrants into their fold. They however stated that membership will not be allowed to exceed 21 political parties.
