Buhari Rejects Ethno-Religious Tag

Muhammadu BuhariThe All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate for the 2015 election, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), has declared unequivocally that Nigeria is his constituency, dismissing speculations that seek to portray him as an ethno-religious champion.

A spokesman for Buhari, Engr. Rotimi Fashakin, in a press statement, said “As a state governor, military commander, federal minister, head of state and chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund, (Buhari) showed unflinching commitment to fairness to all, irrespective of religion and tribe”.

“As a former head of government, [Buhari] restates unequivocally that Nigeria is his constituency; and he shall live the rest of his life in encouraging the ambience for nationalistic fervor in all Nigerians”.

The APC presidential candidate expressed regret that the Nigerian state has become polarized along ethnic and religious lines as a result of cancerous infestation of the nation’s fabric by insurgency, and restated his commitment to Nigeria’s indivisibility and indissolubility.

“The preservation of the inalienable rights of every Nigerian to life, and pursuit of happiness in any part of the nation state remains the hearty commitment of the elder statesman”, the statement said, adding that “All the narratives that seek to fit him within the hollowness of ethno-religious garb are very infernal and unmindful of his antecedents as an officer, gentleman, and statesman”.

  • @ deproph emeka why are commenting like an illitrate? Saying things you don’t even have reasons to defend… If It is really true that Buhari is bokoharam, why can’t Jonathan arrest and investigate him since he is the commander of the armed forces who wants to end insurgency…That means if it is true that he is bokoharam, Jonathan is the person supporting him.
