2019 Election: AD endorses Buhari, gives reason

Published

on

The Alliance for Democracy (AD), Oyo State chapter, has adopted the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), President Mohammadu Buhari, as its candidate ahead of Feb. 16th presidential election.

Mr Oyedele Alao, Oyo governorship candidate of AD, made this known while addressing newsmen in Ibadan on Monday, NAN reports.

According to Alao, the midway withdrawal of AD presidential candidate, Mr Emiola Ojajuni, geared the party to look for another candidate whom they believed could serve the interest of Nigerians better.

”Arising from this, the national body of AD, has given each of the state chapter of the party to adopt presidential candidate of their choice.

”We have taken time to critically look at the situation on ground, viz-a-viz, the two leading candidates, Buhari and Atiku Abubakar, before settling for Buhari.

”The personal attributes of Buhari as a spartan personality with integrity raises him far above his PDP counterpart.

”The current President has been doing his best to put the country on the right track.

“PMB has in the last four years began to lay the foundation of a new Nigeria.

”Therefore, to halt the process now will amount to taking back the country to the year of locust pilfering and shameful pillage of the common wealth.

”I hereby direct our members and supporters across the state to cast their votes for Buhari, the man with pure, genuine desire and clean heart for the true growth and development of Nigeria,” Alao stated.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Adeola Adepoju, the state chairman of the party and other party supporters witnessed the declaration.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa state has appointed three officials in acting capacity to fill the vacancies left by suspended executive members.

The party had last week suspended three of its executives, one indefinitely and two for six months.

A press statement signed by the state Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon Mohammed Abdullahi, named Abdullahi Wali as an ex-Officio to coordinate the Adamawa Central Zone as acting Zonal Vice Chairman.

Mr Medan Kaigama, who had been the Assistant Financial Secretary, is to serve as acting State Financial Secretary, while Mr David Majo, hitherto the party’s vice chairman in Mayo-Belwa Local Government Area, is to now function as the Acting Chairman for the LGA.

The statement said all the appointments are with effect from August 16, 2019.

DAILY POST recalls that Aliyu Bakari (Vice-Chairman Adamawa Central), Saidu Naira (Financial Secretary) and Babangida Talasai (party chairman of Mayo-Belwa) were suspended for allegedly attempting to withdraw a court case which the APC instituted against Governor Ahmadu Fintiri and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the electoral tribunal in the state over PDP’s victory in the last governorship election.
