Osita Okechukwu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that Nigerian elites do not want former Military head of state, Muhammadu Buhari to become democratically elected President of Nigeria. PREMIUM TIMES has this story.

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Osita Okechukwu, has said the Nigerian elite are opposed to the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as president because they are aware he would wage unreserved war against corruption.

He said as president, Mr. Buhari, who ruled the country as a military head of state between 1983 and 1985, would rubbish the belief that there is no ideological difference between the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, by implementing the manifesto of the opposition party. Mr. Okechukwu stated this in a goodwill message at the launching ceremony of a group, Friends of Buhari, in Abuja.

The group is pushing for the election of Mr. Buhari, a leader of the APC, as candidate in the 2015 presidential election. The former head of state was the presidential candidate of defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, in 2003 and 2007 and that of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change, CPC. “The tiny top elite are fully aware that General Muhammadu Buhari, GMB, as a president will stridently, in line with the Manifesto of the APC, wage war against corruption,” he said.
