2015 Election: Buhari Pledges To Conduct Issue-Based Campaign

Muhammadu BuhariThe presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has pledged to conduct an issues-based campaign, which will focus on the upliftment of Nigerians from poverty to prosperity.

The pledge was contained in a statement issued Sunday by the Buhari Campaign Organisation.

The statement, which was signed by the BCO’s Director of Communication, Mr. Dele Alake, noted that “the issues of electricity generation and distribution, poverty elimination, eradication of corruption, mass unemployment and security of lives and property are going to form the focal points of our campaign”.

It added: “These issues have no ethnic colour. Poverty afflicts the old and the young. Unemployment has no political affiliation. Insecurity damages the economy precariously. Insecurity may be more prominent in the Northeast in the wake of the Boko Haram insurgency, but the reality is that Nigerians generally have never been as endangered as they now are.

“Our responsibility to the Nigerian people in this campaign is to articulate how to rescue Nigerians from the present danger based on the manifesto of the APC. Our responsibility is to demonstrate that Buhari has the personal virtues of discipline, honesty and transparency to inspire the change that is imminent.

“Our responsibility is to communicate how the military skills acquired by Buhari, the generals’ general, in a publicly acknowledged distinguished career, has made him the most appropriate contestant in the 2015 election with the technical and technocratic skills to crush the rampaging  insurgency and bring peace to a nation losing  a protracted guerrilla war”.

On the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket, the campaign organisation said it brought together two institutions, which defend the national patrimony and maintain internal harmony.

It explained that while the military defends the state from aggression, the judicial system defends the law, which establishes and maintains the state.

“Indeed, the intellectual, political and spiritual antecedents of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo provide the complimentary combination and collaboration that the next Nigerian administration needs – a government that respects the rights of its citizens and enforces their duty to the state”, the statement said.
