Wife of president Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha has raised concerns over the conduct of some primary election under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mrs Buhari in a statement in Sunday revealed her displeasure about the way some aspirants were treated during the party’s primaries in some state.
According to Aisha, it was totally wrong for aspirants to be allowed to purchase forms at very exorbitant amounts knowing fully well that some aspirants have already been given automatic tickets for the position.
She stressed that it was even more disheartening because the national chairman of the party, claims to be a Comrade, who’s concern should be the common man.
See full statement below
It is disheartening to note that some aspirants used their hard earned money to purchase nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously yet found their names omitted on Election Day, these forms were bought at exorbitant prices.
Many others contested and yet had their result delayed. Fully knowing that AUTOMATIC tickets have been given to other people.
All Progressives Congress being a party whose cardinal principle is change and headed by a comrade/ activist whose main concern is for the common man, yet, such impunity could take place under its watch.
Given this development one will not hesitate than DISSOCIATE from such unfairness, be neutral and speak for the voiceless.
It is important for the populace to rise against impunity and for voters to demand from aspirants to be committed to the provision of basic amenities such as:
1. Potable drinking water
2. Basic health care ( Primary Health Care centers)
3. Education within conducive & appropriate learning environments.
Let us vote wisely!
LONG LIVE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA!
