Group Buys Buhari APC Nomination Form

Ahead of the 2019 general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has picked his expression of interest and nomination form to contest in the forthcoming primary election of his ruling All Progressives Congress APC.

The form, sold for N45 million, was purchased on his behalf Wednesday by one of his support groups, the Nigerian Consolidation Ambassadors Network. Many pro-Buhari groups had lobbied to‎ be the ones to purchase the form for the president.

National Coordinator of the group, Barr. Sunusi Musa who led his members to purchase the form said 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”. With the purchase a day after the APC leadership made public the primary time tables and the cost, President Muhammadu Buhari becomes the first aspirant to obtain the nomination form. The group which was received by the Comrade Adams Oshiomohle led National Working Committee NWC, came in hundreds to the national secretariat of the ruling party.

Speaking further, Sunusi said: “Mr. Chairman, it is my singular honour and rare privilege to present to you a cheque of N45 million as payment for the expression of interest and nomination forms for President Muhammadu Buhari.” According to Musa, the group embarked on the project based on the recognition that the President has started laying a foundation for a better Nigeria, hence the need to consolidate on his achievements so far. “We have no doubt that Mr. President has both in action and word being working hard to lay a foundation for greater and prosperous nation that our generation and future generations will be proud of. Under his administration Nigeria has become a country sought after for investments in the world; Nigeria has assumed its leadership role in not just Africa but the world.

“Today, Mr Chairman, Nigeria‘s moribund infrastructure is being revived. There is no state In Nigeria that does not have several major Federal Government infrastructure project either completed or being, executed under President Buhari. “Mr. Chairman, for the first time since the return of democracy, Nigerians have a President who can beat his chest and state that he has never stolen from the purse of government. We have a President who is not having meetings at night to strike shady personal deals but rather is ensuring that every agreement entered into by Nigeria is in the interest of the country and for its generations unborn.

This has indeed boosted the confidence of investors hence the increase in flow of Direct Foreign Investment into the country”, he said.
