Buhari denies endorsing any aspirant in Rivers, Abia states

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari has refuted the rumours about his endorsement of any governorship aspirant in Rivers and Abia states and in any other states across Nigeria.

The president in his statement made available by the special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, said, such rumours are malicious, misleading and unnecessary at this time, when all party members should concentrate on strengthening internal democracy within the APC.

He further reiterated that it is the responsibility of the state party members to choose a flag bearer through a democratic and peaceful process.

And Concerned Patriotic Elders’ (SouthWest-V and PE), on Friday, September 14, commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s successes against terrorism and insurgency in the country.

The group, during a rally which started from Freedom Park, Ojota, Lagos and ended at Lagos Government House, saw scores of elderly Nigerians paying glowing tributes to the Nigerian Army and its leadership.

Addressing the newsmen in Ikeja, the national president of SouthWest-V and PE, Elder Johnson Adebayo, said Buhari had conquered terrorism “like Moses did in the Bible”.

According to him, the president has liberated several communities held by the insurgents in the same manner the Biblical Moses liberated the Israelites from their Egyptian captors.

“We have seen a repeat of Moses’ leadership of the Israelites in their most difficult times reflected in the present leadership of our cherished country Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“He has played the role of the Chief armour bearer of the defeat of the enemies of Nigeria, as directed by God. “The idea of this elaborate thousand-man rally march from us, Nigerians of septuagenarian and octogenarian ages is to drum support for President Buhari’s rewarding leadership.

“It is also our token of open appreciation of the Nigerian military for their courageous demystification of the formerly deified Boko Haram insurgents,” Adebayo said.
