- There are fears that some suspected thugs are scheming to disrupt the campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari in Borno
- The alarm was on Thursday, December 27, raised by the chairman of the APC in the northeastern state, Alhaji Ali Dalori
- Dalori further claimed that the thugs who are planning to perpetuate the evil act are resident in Abuja
The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Borno state, Alhaji Ali Dalori, has warned against hijack of President Muhammadu Buhari re-election campaign activities by some individuals in the state, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Dalori gave the warning while addressing newsmen on Thursday, December 27, in Maiduguri. He said reports indicated that some persons or group of individuals based in Abuja were working to scuttle campaign activities of the presidential candidate of the party in the state.
Dalori alleged: “Some self-seeking indigenes of the state, resident in Abuja, conspired to hijack the presidential campaign activities in the state.
“They are planning to take control and management of campaign activities without the engagement of the party leadership at the state level.
“We do not know them. They are not card carrying members of the party and we will not condone disruption or act capable of scuttling the campaign activities of President Buhari.’’
The chairman noted that the state’s leadership of the party had worked hard to win all elective positions in 2015, adding that the party had also evolved effective campaign strategies to sweep the 2019 polls.

He, therefore, called on members of the party to support its leadership to enable it to provide block votes for the president and other candidates.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Akwa Ibom chapter of the APC said the appointment of indigenes into higher political positions was the justification of the massive support and love President Muhammadu Buhari enjoyed from the state.
The party said this ahead of the visit of the president for the flagging off ceremony of APC's 2019 presidential campaign in the state.
