Ahead of the 2019 presidential election, the battle to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress has taken another dimension as a political party, Alliance for New Nigeria, ANN, yesterday joined forces with former President Olusegun Obasanjo and others to campaign against President Buhari.
In a statement in Abuja, Chairman, Board of Trustees, BOT of ANN, Adekoya Adebola, corroborated the ex-president’s stance and called on Nigerians to ensure that the 2019 election was a test of competence and not sentiments or political blackmails, typical of previous elections.
Adebola said: “The reality is how can we explain the continuous insecurity and the ravaging killer herdsmen? Even when the core of the government focus is to deliver security but since inception of this administration, the country has witnessed more of security breaches and senseless killings in virtually every part of the country with no one apprehended, or prosecuted.
“How can we explain the failure in the fight against corruption even when the reason Nigerians voted for this government was essentially because of the stealing that was going on in government?
“And right now, the same is the order of the day in the nose of the current government. Monies are swallowed by monkeys and snakes; questionable list of looters. The list can go on and on.”
He called on Nigerians to come out en-masse in 2019 to vote out an incompetent APC and Buhari government.
