2019: Disregard Unfounded Rumours, North-West Group Urges Buhari
A group known as the Integrity for North-West (INW) on Monday, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to disregard unfounded rumors and propaganda designed to hit up the polity and disorganize his political consolidation in the Zone ahead of the 2019 general elections.
In a Press Statement signed by the spokesman of the INW, Comrade Isah Bulama, and made available to journalists, the Group insisted that, “no amount of propaganda and blackmail will stop the people of North-West from ensuring that our own President Muhammadu Buhari and the progressive governors in the Zone from being re-elected in office come 2019 general elections.”
According to Bulama, “the recent trends in the political landscape of the country have opened a lee way for political fugitives to use all the weapons in their arsenals, including blackmail to hit up the polity.”
Making reference to a story titled “Nigerian governor caught on video receiving $5m bribes,” published by Daily Nigerian, an online news portal, INW, described it, “as a calculated attempt by those who lost out in the just concluded primary elections in to cause confusion.”
INW further challenged, “to be bold enough to come out with empirical evidence and name the said governor it is referring to.
“Nigerians are away of how fraudsters and desperate politicians can clone video clips in their bid to achieve their unpatriotic agenda.
“We urge President Muhammadu Buhari; and indeed, discernable Nigerians to disregard the fictitious story of Daily Nigerian. We also advise political destitute who orchestrated this blackmail to face the realities on ground.
“Finally, we declare our continued support to the Change Agenda of President Muhammadu Buhari, as we declare our unalloyed support for his merited re-election come 2019 general elections.”
