Defectors from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to other political parties have been described by President Muhammadu Buhari as selfish and weakest members who could not align with the vision of his administration.
Vanguard reports that the president made the statement during his acceptance of the expression of interest and nomination forms to contest the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the ruling party from a political group known as Nigerian Consolidation Ambassadors Network (NCAN), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Sources gathers that President Buhari said the hopeless state of the country, which started in 2006, propelled him to contest for the presidential election in 2007.
He said: “I am honoured today to receive youths from all over the country contributing to buy the form for me. The weakest whose sense of expectation do not align with our vision have exited our party.
We now have a party of strong and patriotic people who are ready to work for a strong Nigeria.” In his opening remarks, the deputy chairman of NCAN, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, said the group that purchased the forms for Buhari was made up of three million Nigerians.
According to him, these group of people contributed as little as N68 to purchase the form after a triple A assessment of the performance of the president.
He added that the president’s commitments to fight against corruption, fight against terrorism and rejuvenation of the economy, convinced the group to purchase the forms for the president.
