The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has pleaded to be given time to respond to appropriately to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari not to contest the 2019 presidential election.
In the letter, Obasanjo said Buhari and his party, the APC, have failed Nigerians woefully.
Rreacting to the memo, APC National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, simply said: “The APC has asked to be given the opportunity to study the statement. We shall respond appropriately afterwards.”
Regardless, to the Peoples Democratic Party, Obasanjo’s counsel is courageous, timeous and patriotic.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement in Abuja, yesterday, said the fact that Buhari and the APC have irredeemably failed the nation was obvious to all, adding that Nigerians have already taken an irrevocable position against them ahead of the 2019 elections.
But, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has said the APC should be allowed to decide Buhari’s fate.
This was contained in a statement issued by the ACF National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu.
