ALL PROGRESSIVES DEFECTORS ARE ‘BAD EGGS’ WITHIN THE PARTY, SAYS BUHARI
‘‘Like we promised, what will determine a good future for the country are security, strong economy and to stop corruption. We campaigned on these things, you voted for us and we will never forget”, he stated
Speaking further at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi, where he endorsed the party candidate for the senatorial bye-election, he declared: “we have confidence in him and we trust him.”
Buhari who was accompanied by the party national chairman Adams Oshiomhole, Governors of Bauchi, Plateau, Kano and Imo States, and other party officials urged the people of Bauchi South Senatorial District to vote Yahaya in the upcoming election.
He also thanked the people of Bauchi for defying the heavy rainfall and coming out en masse to welcome him and show solidarity to the party’s candidate in the Senatorial election,and assured the party supporters that his administration will continue to work hard to surpass its campaign promises for a better Nigeria.
Penpushing recalled that number of Federal and State lawmakers as well as three State Governors have defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) in the past two weeks. The States where the defections occurred include Benue, Kwara, Kano, and Sokoto.
However, Buhari apparently in a move to stop further defection, on Wednesday met with All Progressives Congress(APC) Senators and Governors separately to douse the tension among both groups, just as the party leadership repeatedly boasted that the defections would not affect the party’s fortunes in the 2019 general elections.
