General Muhammadu Buhari is not desperate to fly the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential elections according to the chairman of Contact and Mobilisation Group of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Senator Solomon Ewuga.
Ewuga, who made this stance known when he led members of his committee to a meeting with leaders of the party from the South-West in Ibadan, on Monday, said all the promoters of the mega party had resolved to place national interest above individual ambitions, in the quest to win the 2015 polls.
He explained that Buhari’s presence at the maiden meeting of the mobilisation team did not only lead to a successful session, but an assurance that all the leaders were determined to make all necessary sacrifice to guarantee victory at the polls.
Ewuga added that stakeholders in the mega party would decide who get the presidential ticket of the party and mobilize support for him before the election.
“We will take this nation from the conservatives. This time, special people will remove this nation from the grip of the conservatives. Our convention will come up on May 9 this year, where far reaching decisions would be made,” he said.
The CPC chieftain promised that all contenders for the ticket would go through normal primaries, emphasising that there would be no room for the imposition of candidates.
