Only Buhari Can Rescue Nigerians from Suffering – Yoruba Group
Yoruba Ronu Leadership Forum, a socio-political group, has expressed regrets over a recent statement credited to former Head of State, Major General Muhammadu Buhari over his plan to step down his presidential ambition for a better candidate.
The group, in a communiqué issued by its Secretary General, Akin Malaolu, stated that if Buhari steps down for another candidate, the alliance that brought about the All Progressives Congress, APC, would crumble.
According to the group, at the critical time in the country’s history, only Buhari can rescue the people from suffering.
The statement reads: “We somewhat regret that the former Head of State and 2011 presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change ,CPC, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari, would offer to drop his ambition in 2015.
We want to warn that the masses of our people do not subscribe to that idea because of the prevailing situations of Nigeria today.
“It should be crystal clear to all leaders of the opposition that only Buhari is acceptable to the Nigerian people because he is a genuine leader and if, by error, he is forced to step down or stabbed at the back, the masses of our great country would back out of the merger and this may signal the continuation of PDP in power.
“It is not in doubt that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, together with its reckless political regime, have not benefited from the people and this has been clearly confirmed by school children, housewives, artisans and our unemployed youth, and just a few days ago, we witnessed the mass killings of hapless and helpless Nigerians in Baga province of Borno State and till now the government of Jonathan appears at ease with the development.
“Hunger, ignorance and disease have been our woes. We, therefore, beseech leaders of the opposition to rally round Major-General Buhari to emerge as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, come 2015,” the statement added
