CPC releases official statement on General Muhammadu Buhari's 2015 Candidacy
PRESS RELEASE. Muhammadu Buhari and the 2015 Presidential contest.
The Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, has noted the furore
engendered by the statement credited to the Party’s National Leader,
General Muhamadu Buhari (GMB) while receiving a delegation of Political
admirers in Kaduna some days ago. In that occasion, GMB had stated,
inter-alia, that owing to the leadership deficit and the truncation of
the hope of the common man through the pervasive injustice in the land,
he would continue relevant political activism in the run to the 2015
general elections. True, GMB told the Nation, during the
electioneering campaigns for the 2011 Presidential elections, that he
would not be contesting the nation’s subsequent elections. It is
almost a year ago since he made that statement. Indeed, the Nigerian
nation has been tottering as a result of the besmirched reputation of an
inept, dishonest and egregiously incompetent political leadership; the
Party’s leadership has brought to bear immense pressure on GMB to
rescind his earlier stance on Nigeria’s tempestuous politics.
Meanwhile, the CPC is in alliance and possible merger talks with other
progressive coalition partners in order to give true meaning to
democratic governance within the Nigerian polity. It is our considered
opinion that it would be rather preemptive to speculate at this time
what the choice of these coalition partners shall be. However, what is
unmistakably true is that, as the Almighty God grants the enablement,
GMB shall continue to actively participate in the politics under the
God bless Nigeria.
