"I am ready to face PDP at the 2015 general election" - Buhari

The National leader of Congress for Progressive Change, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), Wednesday declared that he was ready to face the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the 2015 general election.

Buhari, disclosed this when he paid a courtesy call on Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State. The former Head of State told his host that he was in Kano to open his party office in readiness for the battle ahead.

Speaking further on his mission to the state, Buhari said, “I am in Kano to open our party office and put an end to the intra and inter- party squabbles culminating in electoral loss that ended up in the tribunal up to the Supreme Court but I want to tell you we are already settling down to face you guys squarely, your Excellency.”

Buhari criticized the manner at which those in position of authority violated the constitution and electoral laws in Nigeria, noting that “if there is anything that has enjoyed sanctity under PDP-led government from 1999 to date it is the Holy Book”.

The CPC National Leader argued that the constitution had been raped and sidelined in our quest to attain nationhood, stressing that “under normal circumstances we are supposed to work strictly within the provisions of the constitution, but this is Nigeria and nothing is perfect and the only thing they have not tampered with between 1999 to date in Nigeria is the Holy Quran”.

General Buhari also lamented the deteriorating security situation in the country, especially the negative impact it has had on the commerce and other socio-economic activities in the North, saying that a lot of businesses had collapsed as a result of the security challenges.
