Benue CNPP Throws Weight Behind Buhari’s Bid For Presidency In 2015

170513buhariThe Benue State chapter of Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, has declared its support for the candidature of former Head of State, Gen.Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) in the 2015 presidential elections, saying that he remains the genuine face of opposition politics in the country.

Buhari is one of the national leaders of All Progressives Congress, APC, and remains a frontrunner for the party’s presidential ticket come 2015.

The State CNPP Chairman, Mr. Baba Agan, who was speaking with journalists in Makurdi, the state capital, said “Buhari candidature will certainly galvanize mass followership across the country.

“We have all been following the political trends since the advent of the present democratic dispensation in this country and no one in the opposition block can deny the fact that Buhari is the candidate to beat in any election in this country because he represents the face of the opposition”.

Agan, who further noted that the task of dislodging the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, from power in 2015 would be herculean explained that “if the opposition truly wants to assume leadership of the country in 2015, we have no choice but to seek for a detribalized and disciplined Nigerian who has garnered so much experience like Gen. Buhari.

“That is the more reason why I urge all those angling for the presidential ticket of the APC to jettison the idea for now and throw their weight behind Buhari’s candidature in the collective interest of all Nigerians”.

On the open letter written by elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark to former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Agan said, “in as much as I have no qualms with people writing letters to perceived friends or enemies, I strongly believe that the letter by Chief Clark was absolutely unnecessary.

“Chief Clark might have his genuine reason for the piece but the truth is that the impression some of them are creating in the minds of Nigerians is that the presidency of the country as at now is an Ijaw business.

“That is certainly not a good omen for our unity and the oneness of this country. It is undoubtedly a dangerous dimension that must be checked before we lose conscious of the fact that an elected president is the symbol of the country’s unity.

“We never had it this way during the Obasanjo and Yar’Adua’s administrations. The president of Nigeria should not be reduced to a clannish leader. Moreover, President Jonathan had taken time to reply Obasanjo; it should end at that.  Those loitering around the corridors of power for self-aggrandizement should please save us these pains”, Agan warned.
