Women Group Plan to Force Buhari to Contest in 2015

Published

Hajiya Aishatu Ibrahim Musa, the women leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), has declared that Nigerian women, especially those in CPC, will put pressure on General Muhammadu Buhari to change his mind and contest the 2015 presidential election.

The women leader who was speaking to reporters on Tuesday pointed out that at 70 General Buhari is still strong to fly the part’s ticket in future elections. She blamed some faceless politicians close to the General as responsible for the party’s defeat in Kano in 2011, and vowed that this time around those working for PDP in the party will be exposed.

In her words, ” In 2011, Iam sorry to say this, but people who hate our group and that of Mohammed Abacha misled Buhari, and when Buhari came to Kano for campaign he refused to raise any body’s hand as our governorship candidate and that has cost us victory in Kano”.

She continues, “we have good news for Nigerians, if Buhari’s alliance with ACN works this time around, then PDP should be prepared to leave Aso Rock… quote me, in 2015, we are going to win Kano, Bauchi, Borno, in fact almost all the Northern states and Buhari by the grace of God will be our president in 2015”.
