Ganduje said it was unfortunate that despite the collective effort made by the APC to ensure Buhari’s victory in 2015 and 2019, after several losses, the president had resolved to pay the party and those who supported him by destroying the party that brought him to power, a report by Daily Trust confirmed.

“Imagine someone has been contesting without winning elections until after a merger was formed. He won the election and spent four years and re-contested again and he won, now that he is about to go, he is doing nothing but to destroy the party that elected him,” Ganduje said.
