Buhari supporters shop for N27m APC presidential form fee

To match Interview NIGERIA-BUHARI/The Bauchi State Chapter of the Buhari Campaign Organisation has pledged to buy the nomination form for Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).

Coordinator of The Nigerian Solution Network Group, Dr. Danjuma Dabo, made the disclosure on Saturday in Bauchi during a solidarity rally in support of Buhari.

Dabo said whether Buhari was willing to contest in the 2015 polls or not, the organisation would source for fund to foot both the campaign bills and purchase the nomination form for him.

The coordinator of the group, who said that the N27m fee for the purchase of nomination form was too high, added that it was above Buhari’s financial capability.

He then urged party supporters to contribute funds for activities and to enable the organisation to raise the fund for Buhari.

Also Capt. Bala Jibrin (rtd), a guest speaker at the rally, faulted insinuations that Buhari was a tribalist and has religious bias.

Jibrin described Buhari as “a statesman, who refused to associate with those playing tribal or religious politics.”

He assured the people that if elected, Buhari would salvage the country from its current state of insecurity, agricultural backwardness and revive other sectors of the nation.

He said it was the right time for the electorate to try people like Buhari, who he stressed would bring the country out of its current woes.
