Nigerians Will Stone Us To Death, If We Present Buhari As Our 2019 Presidential Candidate – APC Group Raises Alarm

An All Progressives Congress, APC, group, which goes under the banner of Southern Mandate of Nigeria, SMN, has said that Nigerians will stone them at campaign grounds, if President Muhammadu Buhari is presented as their 2019 Presidential candidate.

National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Francis Ikonomwan, in a statement made available to Journalists, in Benin, the Edo State capital, described the call by members of the Buhari Support Group on President Muhammadu Buhari to contest the 2019 election, as political sycophancy.

He described members of the Buhari Support Group, as a “bunch of people who do not mean well for our party, APC, and Nigerians at large, but rather, they represent their selfish interest.”

Ikonomwan who noted that President Buhari has failed to deliver on his campaign promises, and so Nigerians can no longer entrust him with the leadership of the country, urged him to ignore such calls, adding that, it is not in the interest of the nation.

“We are saddened that these people are not sensitive to the plight of Nigerians. The fact remains that Nigerians are not happy with President Muhammadu Buhari, and our party, the APC.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has not been able to deliver on his campaign promises. What has this administration done to campaign within every sector of the economy, or is it the fight against corruption that has been swept under the carpet?

“Even the political leaders and the people who fought for his emergence a President, today have been abandoned and are all lamenting today.

“There is a total disconnect between the people and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration. Poverty and Hunger is now the order of the day in Nigeria as we speak. It is getting obvious by the day that Nigerians can no longer trust President Muhammadu Buhari with the leadership of this country.

“If APC fields Muhammadu Buhari as its Presidential candidate in 2019, we are afraid that Nigerians may stone us at campaign grounds. We may just end up giving the opposition party the Presidency in 2019, on a platter of gold.

“However, we wish to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore such calls, as it is not in the interest of Nigerians.

“President Muhammadu Buhari’s priority now should be how to use the remaining part of his administration to deliver on our campaign promises, and do the needful, by not indicating interest to contest in 2019”, the statement said.
