The All Progressives Congress ( APC ), Presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has been advised to learn from history and adopt more democratic posture in his political outings or risk his presidential bid.
This call was made by National Coordinator Concerned APC Stakeholders, Alh. Bashir Mohammed in Kano while addressing newsmen. Alh. Bashir made this observation after Buhari’s visit to Kano where the presidential aspirant received an overwhelming reception but refused to acknowledge the APC governorship flag bearer as is the usual practice.
According to Bashir who warned that such behavior could bring about division within the party, said Buhari had refused to recognize Alh. Umar Ganduje because he was not the retired general’s choice for the ticket and warned that if this continues the party may loose the state in the general elections.
While reminding the four time presidential aspirant of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), experience “where he forced one of his loyalists Col. Jafaar on the people even as Mohammed Abacha was the preferred candidate, which cost him the elections”, he further explained that the general interest of the party should be supreme and not personal ego as been portrayed by Buhari in his political outings.
Speaking further the party stalwart added that the divisions within the party should further strengthen it and not divide it, stating that the reason behind the Kano incident stems from an underground feud between Kwankwaso followers (Kwankwasiya) and those from the Buhari camp (Buhariya) over the leadership of the party in the state.
He blamed the crisis on rumour mongers who have begun accusing Kwankwaso of instigating the recent certificate scandal to ensure Buhari is substituted for another northerner which most likely would have been him. He said detractors of the party had already accredited Kwankwaso usual nocturnal meetings to scheming to unseat or eventually betray Buhari.
While also emphasizing his dedication to the party and her subsequent victory in the polls, Alh. Bashir however warned that “unless all rivalries are forgotten and the actors move on, the party is doomed to fail”.
“I wish to state without stammering that the All Progressives Congress ( APC ), is the party to beat come February 14 however unless all rivalries are forgotten and the actors move on, the party is doomed to fail. It does not matter if Rabiu had contested against Buhari or feels he is better than him. The comments of 2010 when he called Buhari a serial coupist should not be front burner now. Let’s forge on as one United front”. He advised.
Speaking further, “This is a worrisome scenario that shows that those of us who came from the PDP would have no place in the scheme of Buhari’s affairs when eventually voted into office as President of the country, General Buhari must learn to rise above this myopic reasoning each time he gets the opportunity of leading the party and not further use the present setback back to deepen bitterness and acrimony within the rank of our great party”.
“There is no better commitment that he would protect the interest of many who have joined the fold to fight as a united opposition and the party must avoid shutting its door against other people because of old grudges,” he also added.
There seems to be underground tension in the party as there has arisen a sharp division between the cult like following of the Kano state governor, Alh. Rabiu Kwankwaso who feel slighted by the gap toothed general, Muhammadu Buhari, whose followers are also uneasy with the governor whom they claim has never loved the party’s presidential flagbearer and is playing the spoiler for the party.
I strongly believe that this article was written in order to instill divisive feelings and heart-red amongst the electorates with myopic agenda in their minds – the perpetrators. But alas, Kano has come overage on issues concerning national interest rather than being partisan.
u r a fool, ur gmb has not yet becom presido and he has started imposin candidates. y wud he refuse to acknowledge his party flag bearer? u blind follower heading for doom.
This is the problem when delinquents are thrust with gadget that they have no inkling what to do with it, they come out like rabid dogs and attack innocent people. Cole or Coal or whatever u call yourself, why don’t you stop character assassination and address the issue at hand, why talk like a garage tout and call someone (who might even be older than your father) a fool . DECORUM should be your watchword.
Those who lack facts to fight a cause always resort to abuse. Abuses are not hard unassailable facts. It’s a sign of frustration, and lack of self control.
The general interest of the party should be supreme, not individual interest.
Buhari, kindly focus on your presidential ambition not a state governorship aspirant is your aim.
you have my vote come FEBUHARI 14th. just that i have not collect my PVC
buhari sai buhari
NO MATTER THE TICK DARKNESS, BEHIND IT IS THE GREAT LIGHT. THE LIGHT OF GOD WILL SURELY SHINE ON THIS NATION. WHO WILL BE WILL BE. WE SHOULD ALL LOOK UP TO GOD FOR OUR HELP. LEOPARD IS ALWAYS A LEOPARD; TAKE THE GOAT TO LONDON,NA BLACK SHIT EM GO STILL SHITE.
Could APC be the Nigerian version of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Party? Check out this: 1. Party Leader – North: Gen Muhammadu Buhari (Muslim). 2. Party Leader – South: Bola Ahmed Tinubu (Muslim). 3. National Chairman: Abdulkareem Bisi Akande (Muslim). 4. Deputy National Chairman: Aminu Bello Masari (Muslim). 5. National Secretary: Tijjani Musa Tumsah (Muslim). 6. Deputy National Secretary: Nasir El-Rufai (Muslim). 7. National Publicity Secretary: Lai Muhammad (Muslim). 8. National Treasurer: Sadiya Umar Faruq (Muslim) 9. National Financial Secretary: Alhaji Shaibu Musa (Muslim). 10. National Youth Leader: Abubakar Lado (Muslim). 11. National Legal Adviser: Muiz Banie (Muslim). 12. National Deputy Auditor: Bala Jibrin (Muslim). 13. National Women Leader: Sharia Ikeazor (Muslim convert). 14. EX-Officio Member: Muniru Muse (Muslim). 15. EX-Officio Member: Alhaji Yemi Sanusi (Muslim). Yet, these people want us to believe they are PROGRESSIVES and that APC is a national party. I think APC has a hidden religious agenda..it might be the change they are campaigning for,Means they don’t have any thing to offer. (IF APC WINS PROBABLY NIGERIA WILL BE A SHARIA COUNTRY WHERE WE CHRISTIANS WILL HAVE NO SAY ANYMORE ) VOTE GOODLUCK2015 FOR A BETTER NIGERIA.
All your comments is not correspond with time and event,who is current APC Chairman now,go and find out,that is an assignment for you.
Is Lai Mohammed a Christian? Why dont you answer the question or point this out yourself if you are sincere. Why hiding behind one finger? Why dont you comment on that list? Are those comments true or false? YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED AND YOU WILL SURELY FAIL BECAUSE GOD WILL FIGHT THE BATTLE TO SAVE HIS CHILDREN MOST OF WHOM YOU HAVE RAPED, TORTURED AND GRUESOMELY AND MERCILESSLY MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD THROUGH YOUR YOUTH VANGUARD, BOKO HARAM AND ALMANJIRIS. YOU WILL SURELY REGRET THESE KILLINGS! Anytime you Muslim North wants anything and you are asked to wait, you resort to Murder and Blood shedding!
1) You doubted Major Kaduna’s sincerity and you MURDERED MILLIONS IN RETALIATION;
2) You wanted Sharia imposed on the country and Obasanjo said WAIT but instead you MURDERED SEVERAL THOUSANDS and
3) You wanted Power back to the North and Nigerians say WAIT but you became more notorious and empowered the Boko Haram using them as your Youth Vanguard to enleash terror on Nigeria.
YOU HAVE DONE YOUR WORST AND MARK IT, YOU DONT NEED TO WAIT ANY LONGER BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT HAVE IT AGAIN! THE BATTLE IS BETWEEN YOU AND ALMIGHTY GOD. LETS SEE WHO WINS! BUT I MUST WARN YOU, NOBODY BATTLES WITH THE LORD! NOBODY!
You should have told us how many national officers they have out of which 15 are moslems. That will make us to judge sensibly and and conclude reasonably. Until that is done, yours is a mere speculation.
Buhari will hardly change for good.You and i know that his fanaticism stinks like rotten shit. His autocratic disposition is glaring. SAI GOOD LUCK.
Alas the forthcoming elections may prove to be a notable pointer in our great country’s history. Without a shadow of doubt the country is crying out for change and despite the realisation that GEJ cannot or is incapable of delivering the future we all yearn, my fear is that 3 time loser Buhari cannot and will not finally become a ‘champion’ this time around, meaning another 4 (FOUR) years of the same useless nonsense that PDP have forced us to put up with? NEVER LET IT BE SAID THAT NIGERIANS ARE GUTLESS, WITHOUT MORALS OR PRINCIPLES!! DESPITE ALL OUR RESERVATIONS, CHANGE WILL ONLY BE POSSIBLE BY VOTING APC AND LET US OVERCOME OUR FEARS BY GIVING THE 3 TIME LOSER ONE CHANCE TO PROVE HIS WORTH!!! BUHARI 2015 FOR A GLITTERING FUTURE? TIME WILL TELL!

Only blind followers of Buhari would pretend not to know what he (Buhari) would do if he becomes the president. Buhari wants to ride on the back of APC to become an autocratic President. Even Tinubi would not be spared. Buhari is only pretending, he can never change.
