Bothered members of the All Progressives Congress [APC], have disclosed worries over the state of health of the Presidential Candidate of the party, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) and advised the leadership of the party to replace him with governor of Kano State, Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso who came second in the primaries of the party.
Apart from the health condition, the group expressed concern over the educational qualification of Gen. Buhari, stating that the noise being made about it was a distraction from the resolve to take over the government of the nation by the party, pointing out that these were some of the reasons Buhari should be replaced.
The statement by the coordinator of the group, Alhaji Ahmed Garba and Secretary, Olugbenga Kayode reads:
“We wish to call on the leadership of the party to immediately replace General Buhari with Dr. Kwankwaso, who came second in the party presidential primary as the presidential flag-bearer because General Buhari is not qualified as he could not submit the minimum requirement of school certificate to the Independent National Electoral commission, INEC.
“We see this as the beginning of the failure of the party in the February 14 election. For a man that so pride himself as the father of anti-corruption crusade not to have submitted the minimum academic requirement for this all important election speaks volume of the character of the man.”
