APC Bar Gen Buhari from commenting on 2015 ambition
« on: August 22, 2013, 11:54:33 AM »

The All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday barred former military Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, from publicly commenting on his 2015 presidential ambition.

The party gave the order at the first meeting of its national leaders in Abuja, which was attended by the state governors, officers and major stakeholders. The meeting was called to mobilise for nationwide registratioan of new members and solicit the support of members for finance to run the new party.

The leadership also gave its nod to the former governor of Anambra State, Senator Chris Ngige, to carry the flag of the party in the November 16 governorship election.

APC, however, said that the party would still hold primaries in the state.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had last month formally registered APC with the fusing together of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN; All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, and Congress for Progressive Change, CPC.

During the question and answer session with newsmen, Buhari was asked to confirm if he would contest the presidential election in 2015 and before he could answer, the party's Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, cut in to restrain Buhari.

Akande said: "I overrule Buhari from answering that question. This is my press conference and if anybody wants to declare to contest, he should call his press conference in his house."
