FORMER military head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari, was on Tuesday adopted by the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) as its presidential candidate for this year’s election.

He was adopted by a yes voice vote of delegates of the party at the national convention of the party held at the Eagle Square in Abuja.
He was the only person who offered to contest the presidency on the party’s ticket.

Senator Faruq Bunza moved for the ratification and adoption of Buhari and the delegates approved through a unanimous voice vote.

In his speech, Buhari said the task ahead was how to mobilise democratic forces to defeat the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which he said had not governed the country very well.

On why he had to leave his former party, the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), the retired General said ANPP leadership exhibited unprincipled leadership, particularly by going to form a government of national unity with the PDP which he accused of rigging the last two general elections.

May Allah give Nigeria the real person to be called a leader not a ruler.
