The wife of the President, First Lady Aisha Buhari has criticised the manner in which the APC election primaries were being conducted across the nation.
The First lady in a post through her Twitter handle, noted the exorbitant rate of nominations forms and alleged corruption in the selection of final candidates for various political positions.
Aisha Buhari wrote:
“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!”
