The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Muhammadu Buhari once again blasted his rival, President Goodluck Jonathan, running on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former military Head of State said no “right thinking Nigerian” would vote for Jonathan in the 2015 elections in his recent Facebook post and explained why.
“Those who are afraid of the change we seek are the people destroying our country and stunting its progress. They are the same people who spent four years in power without improving our electricity by a single megawatt, the same people who spent four years downgrading high-level corruption to common stealing, the same people who spent four years watching over terrorists desecrating our territorial sovereignty, the same people who spent four years without laying the critical infrastructure for sustainable growth and job creation; those same people are now asking you for four more years.”
“No right thinking Nigerian would wish that our next four years look like the last four. Change has to come, and it begins with you getting registered and spreading our message of change and hope, from sibling to sibling, family to family, neighbourhood to neighbourhood; in our schools, in our market places, in every community, and in every gathering.”
It was reported last week that the politician started using social network to advance in the presidential race.
Buhari vowed to interact with people and read through all the comments dropped by people on Facebook.
“I take note of every comment, suggestion and feedback you give me. Please keep them coming. Thank you for your support.”
Meanwhile, reports further revealed that more than 4,000 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Isa LGA, Sokoto State.
The mass defection reportedly took place on Sunday, December 21; the new members were greeted by Governor Aliyu Wamakko, who stated proudly:
“APC is the party to beat across Nigeria during the 2015 general elections.”
