2015: I Will Contest for Presidency on APC Platform, Says Buhari
Former head of state and Presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC in the 2011 general election, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd.) has indicated interest in contesting for the 2015 presidency on the platform of the proposed All Progressive Congress, APC.
The retired general made the confirmation while speaking at a conference with the theme, “The Role of Youth in Sustaining Democratic Values,”. The conference was held at the Justice Idris Legbo Kutigi International Conference Centre, Minna, Niger State, on Wednesday.
Buhari said the fight to clinch the presidential ticket of the party is open to all interested and qualified members of the group in 2015, but however said he was not ready to give up on his presidential ambition, unless defeated in the primaries or during the general election.
“Whoever thinks he has got a chance, let him come out because the more we are, the merrier it becomes.”
He also indicated that the party ticket is not a do or die affair. According to him: “I will be ready to step down if there is a formidable and better candidate. It is not about me, but for the survival of the party. APC is about ensuring internal democracy. Whoever emerges is the person I will support. Yes, I will be ready to step down”.
