2015: CPC May Dump Buhari, Eyes Sanusi as Replacement
The hope that the former Presidential Candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change [CPC], Gen. Muhammadu Buhari will secure a ticket for the 2015 election is almost slipping away, as the party’s prominent members may opt for the incumbent Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria [CBN], Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Presidential candidate of their party.
The party inside source had disclosed that the party’s resolution was to use young and vibrant Nigerian whose ideology and philosophy would be in line the interest of Nigerians.
Sources have revealed to our correspondent that the party has decided to go for a younger Nigerian because Buhari, who has been contesting for the same position since 2003 may not be appreciated by Nigerians due to his age.
It was also noted that few days to the 2011 general elections, Buhari reportedly said that the last year election would be his last political struggle in the country. This contradiction has created room for serious deliberation over the choice of his candidacy, says the source.
Buhari who has been on Jonathan’s neck since his renewed interest to contest in the 2015 election, has been approached by the party’s chieftains to back the candidature of the CBN Governor as the party Presidential candidate in 2015, Daily Post had authoritatively gathered.
It was also gathered that Sanusi has decided to give the contest a trial, while leaving his acclaimed interest in the Kano emirate stool in the cooler.
Meanwhile, so much is yet to be done regarding the alliance between the CPC and the Action Congress of Nigeria [ACN] for the 2015 general election. The National leader of ACN, Senator Ahmed Tinubu had on several occasions met with Buhuri on the need to merge in order to overpower the PDP in 2015.
Tinubu, who is the exponent of the alliance, had disclosed that the alliance will enhance result, as the two parties are very strong in the country, and can as unseat the PDP government.
However, an attempt to form such alliance in 2011 under the platform of Mega Party did not yield any positive result.
