2023: Group Offers To Buy APC Presidential Nomination Form For Buratai
A group, Fusion 774, has offered to bear the cost of the presidential nomination form of the All Progressives Congress for former Chief of Army Staff and Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Republic of Benin, Ambassador Tukur Buratai, even as it urges him to join the 2023 presidential race.
The National Coordinator of the group, Sediq Jikta, in a statement, said that like the former Chief of Army Staff would be in a good position to handle the problem of insecurity in Nigeria.
The statement said, “The call by the members of the group was borne out of the security challenges facing the country. The 23 years of Nigeria’s democratic experiment had witnessed different threats to its survival such as civil disturbances which required experienced hands to pilot its affairs.
“Nigeria is currently in very challenging times and it is important to decide on the right leadership, a leadership with the capacity and ability to deliver and make the country work.
“The achievement of Buratai as a service chief in the fight against insurgency is a pointer to his sterling quality and qualification to vie for the highest office in the land.
“With his achievements, we can see that Buratai is one courageous leader who could step in and bring the much-needed solution to the security challenge and the desired development for the country.
“Fusion 774 is simply the unification of political strength of the 774 Local Government Areas in Nigeria into a virile, strong and formidable political front. By this announcement, we are prepared to purchase the APC nomination form for him in the event that he declares his acceptance and readiness to contest.”
