Supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari, under the aegis of Buhari-Yemi Osinbajo Nationwide Supporters Group, have asked Nigerians for forgiveness for “blindly supporting” the All Progressives Congress (APC) and installing an administration which has brought so much anguish.
Members of the group, consequently, announced their decision to ditch the ruling party, join the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and work for the success of the Atiku-Okowa presidential ticket.
National Coordinator, Danjuma Fachiwe Gwoza, disclosed this alongside other group members at a press briefing in Abuja, yesterday.
He said: “The members of the President Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo Nationwide Supporters Group wish to officially decamp and transmute her operations to the Atiku/Okowa Nationwide Supporters Group, under the directive of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
“Our group is a formidable conglomerate of political, sagacious and like-minded individuals made of different supporters groups. Our membership strength stands at 9,313,846.
“We contributed immensely to the votes recorded by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which saw the emergence of the Buhari/Osinbajo victory at polls in the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.
“The members of this conglomerate sincerely apologise to Nigerians for our blind support given to the APC-led bankrupt government that has failed to deliver on its campaign promises to the electorates. This colossal failure has caused the nation unbearable quagmire.”
He added: “Our members are strategically located within the 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory and 774 local councils and electoral wards spread across Nigeria…and have been given requisite electioneering training that would guaranty the desired win-win result for Atiku/Okowa in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.”
