- Aisha Buhari condemned what she described as impunity in the APC primary election
- The first lady said some aspirants' names were removed on Election Day
- She said this should not be happening under the watch of Adams Oshiomhole
The first lady, Aisha Buhari, has expressed disappointment over some of the conducts that occoured during the primary election in some states by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement on Sunday, October 7, the first lady noted that some aspirants who had purchased forms on the platform of the party found out that their names were omitted on the day of election.
Aisha said it was more saddening that is happening under the watch of Adams Oshiomhole.
Read the statement below:
It is disheartening to note that some aspirants used their hard earned money to purchase nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously yet found their names omitted on Election Day, these forms were bought at exorbitant prices.
Many others contested and yet had their result delayed. Fully knowing that AUTOMATIC tickets have been given to other people.
All Progressives Congress being a party whose cardinal principle is change and headed by a comrade/ activist whose main concern is for the common man, yet, such impunity could take place under its watch.
Given this development one will not hesitate than DISSOCIATE from such unfairness, be neutral and speak for the voiceless.
It is important for the populace to rise against impunity and for voters to demand from aspirants to be committed to the provision of basic amenities such as:
1. Potable drinking water
2. Basic health care ( Primary Health Care centers)
3. Education within conducive & appropriate learning environments.
Let us vote wisely !!!!
LONG LIVE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA!!!!!!
