Share

President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to members of the All Progressives Congress(APC) not to be complacent but to prepare, strategise and win 2019 elections, to prevent the Peoples Democratic Party from taking Nigeria backwards.
He made the appeal at the APC national Secretariat Wednesday in Abuja while submitting his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms to contest the presidency in 2019.
Although Buhari did not mention PDP in his short speech, the reference was unmistakable as he referred to those who ruled Nigeria between 1999 and 2015.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the forms were purchased for the president by the Nigeria Consolidation Ambassadors’ Network on Sept. 6. at the cost of 45 million.
Buhari had in April declared his intention to seek re-election at the APC National Executive Committee (NEC).
President Buhari while submitting the forms, said; “I m here in person among friends and colleagues to put my name forward to my party, the APC, seeking nomination to contest the presidential election in 2019.
“I am taking this step with all humility, sense of responsibility and unquestionable desire to serve and protect the interest of all Nigerians.
“Let me today, appeal to party members not to be complacent but to pre,strategize and win 2019 elections.
“We must not allow those who brought the country to its kneels from 1999 to 2015 to come and take us back”.
National Co-coordinator Nigeria Consolidation Ambassadors’ Network, Sunnsi Musa, said the group paid for the forms because the President is not a multi-millionaire cash wise.
“But he has millions of supporters who are always ready to come together to pay for his nomination form.
He said the group embarked on the project based on the recognition that the President has started laying a foundation for a better Nigeria and deserves a second term in office.
He expressed gratitude to those who contributed towards the purchase of the forms.
He assured them and Nigerians generally that if nominated, and re-elected in 2019, he would continue to serve the people to the best of his abilities.
