- Less than 200 APC members showed up for the one-million-man march for President Muhammadu Buhari in Niger state
- No single member of the state executive of the ruling party attended the rally
- The infighting within the APC in the state may explain why many party members failed to show up
There was poor turnout at the one-million-man march for President Muhammadu Buhari which held on Thursday, February 21, as less than 200 All Progressive Congress (APC) members turned out for the event.
The march was organised by the Niger state chapter of the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), Independent reports.
Legit.ng gathers that no single member of the state executive of the APC attended the rally which kicked off from the Trade Fair Complex and terminated at the BSO office. Only few women and youths participated.
Journalists had been informed by the Niger state coordinator of the BSO, Alhaji Umar Shu’aibu, that the group will mobilise Nigerians to vote massively for the president in the Saturday, February 23 presidential election.
The march aimed to garner at least 1.5 million votes for the president in the state; however, it failed to yield desired results as many refused to turn out for the exercise.
The infighting within the APC in the state may explain why many party members failed to show up at the event.
