Gombe APC endorses Buhari for second term

From Ali Abare, Gombe

The All Progressives Congress (APC)  in Gombe State has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for second term  in offfice.

The party officials from the ward, local and state government levels made this position known yesterday in Gombe.

While commending the Buhari-led APC administration for effectively tackling the Boko Haram insurgency as well as initiating laudable development projects, particularly, in the Northeast political zone,  it said it has no other presidential candidate in  2019, other than him.

Addressing party officials at the meeting, Julius Ishaya, deputy chairman, Gombe South of the party, said the meeting was purposely organised for the APC to strategise ahead  the 2019 general election,

Ishaya disclosed that the meeting was covened by a stalwart of the party and governorship hopeful, Alhaji Habu Muazu, in conjunction with party leaders.

While urging party officials to ensure support for Buhari to continue with his fight against corruption, among other initiatives aimed at repositioning the country for good, Mua’zu  canvassed  unity among members of the party.

He announced his decision to open offices for the Buhari campaign organisation as well as the APC across the 114 wards and 11 local government areas in the state.

The APC governorship aspirant took a swipe at the presidential ambition of Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo, stressing that the people of Gombe State will not be fair to Nigerians if they failed to support Buhari come 2019.

He advised Dankwambo to jettison his presidential ambition as the people of the state would not support him against President Buhari.

Mua’zu commended leaders of the party at the national level and singled out Senator Danjuma Goje, for changing the face of the state as governor.

He, however, cautioned party officials against being lured with political appointments by the PDP government.

“We hear  of plans to break our ranks by luring our officials with political appointments. We must resist this attempt so we can be strong enough to send the PDP government packing come 2019,” he said.

    It is unfortunate that Gombe indigenes under the cloak of APC are still myopic, uppitous, masochistic, buffoonary, maniacal, mulish and peevish. They have failed to realize that Nigeria is systematically drifting to cataclysm. Fellow innocent Nigerians slaughtered by Buhari’s militants are being buried in Benue and a group of perfidious duffers are celebrating a man who has failed our Nation. Do they want him to die in Aso rock? he had told Nigerians earlier that he will serve a tenure. The fulani militias are ravaging preponderate christian parts of the country since 2015 and he remained imperturbable. Buhari is known for double standard. Compare the splenetic paroxysm with which he clobbered on peaceful IPOD members with his disobliging approach to stop his kins-men’s killings in Benue. Review his corruption fight; how many looters have gone to jail as a deterrent? check his ravenous bellicosity against restructuring. This man that has a professor to guide him, lacks initiative, he is a soldier and has not changed. Anybody asking Buhari to come back for a second term does not mean well for his people and the unity of the country. Buhari, knowing your age not official/health, don’t mind them go home after your four years conundrum and rest. Nigeria cannot progress by the imperious miasma of myopic quasi-educated supines.
