Members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) under the auspices of Southern Mandate of Nigeria at the weekend described Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai as a total stranger to the Buhari project.
They said the real problem with the Buhari government was the fact that the President surrounded himself with people who do not share the same vision for Nigeria with him.
The group said if urgent steps are not taken to address the abnormalities affecting the government, there is the possibility that Nigerians will stone the APC and its leaders on the streets during the 2019 campaigns because of the level of poverty and hunger in the land.
In a statement signed by the National Coordinator, Comrade Ikonomwan Francis and made available to newsmen in Abuja, the group said the government was not moving forward because President Buhari is a sheep in the midst of wolves and hyenas majorly because he neglected those who sacrificed for him and shared same ideology and vision with him.
He said it was surprising that the same el-Rufai who once said that Gen Muhammadu Buhari was “perpetually unelectable” is the same man now claiming to be a core Buharist when it was the core members of the defunct CPC made him electable?
He said the only way out of the political lacuna is to bring on board his co-vision bearers who encouraged him to come to politics for the betterment of our beloved country Nigeria.
“We are strongly of the opinion that the only way out of this confusion is the outright dissolution of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and appoint 40% of the core members of the defunct CPC into his cabinet. These are men and women who have the strong political will to drive and remedy the system right now.
“A situation where strangers have taken over his administration, those who were not there when we made Buhari’s Presidential Project a political tsunami and Hurricane that produced him as President of Nigeria today is no longer acceptable to us.
The likes of Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-rufai , the Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari and the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, who now parade themselves by claiming that they are more Buharist, are strangers in Buhari Project.”
