2015: I‘ll Step Down Only If APC Presents A Better Candidate — Buhari

Muhammadu_BUHARI1Three time presidential aspirant and former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said he “will surely seek the mandate” of Nigerians in the 2015 presidential election under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC except a more ‘formidable and better candidate’ is presented.

Buhari, who spoke in Minna, the Niger State capital at the maiden edition of Sam Nda-Isaiah Annual Lecture Series, said that politics should not be seen as a do-or-die affair.

He also advocated the presentation of the best candidate among many for an election.

“Whoever said he wants to contest has a chance. Let him come out because the more we are, the merrier. But I will be ready to step down if there is a formidable and better candidate” he said.

Continuing, Buhari, who is also defacto leader of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, stressed that “It is not about me but for the survival of the party. APC is about ensuring internal democracy. Whoever emerges is the person I will support. Yes I will be ready to step down”.
