A youth group, Kwakwasiyyya Forum, has appealed to General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to forget about his presidential ambition and back a younger aspirant for the same purpose.
Kwakwasiyya believes that the ambitions of the duo of General Buhari and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar may tear APC apart if they insist in fighting for the ticket of the party.
Speaking in Abuja yesterday through its Edo state coordinator, Comrade Francis Ikonomwan, the pro-Kwankwaso group said they have started working round the clock to reach out to the delegates and ensure that the interest of the people which is Governor Kwankwaso emerge as the APC presidential flag bearer.
“We want a paradigm shift, we want a change from old order and this is why people are clamouring for a realistic change. We have looked at the record and Kwankwaso is the man that actually meets the demand of the people.
“For Alhaji Atiku, he has lost integrity, you may see people around him and they are hired crowd. Nigerians don’t want him. For General Buhari, he is a man we use to respect, he is a man Nigerians holds in a high esteem, but we are surprised that he will be declaring next week, remember he told us after the 2011 elections that he will not contest again and we expect him to stick to his words as a man of integrity, if he contest again that shows that he is no longer a man of integrity.
“I want to say that ambitions of Atiku and General Buhari will tear APC apart, what is best for them is to come behind a younger person and no other person than Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.”
The group appealed to the leaders of the APC not to give room for imposition of candidates at all levels, saying such act is capable of ruining the fortune of the party.
