The members of the President Muhammadu Buhari/ Yemi Osinbajo Nationwide Supporters Group have apologized to Nigerians for the misrule of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and vowed to work for the success of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar.
Addressing Journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, Hon. Danjuma Fachiwe Gwoza, National Coordinator of the group said following the declaration, the members no longer had anything to do with APC again.
Gwoza said from now on all the Campaign activities and strategies of the group is now geared towards making sure that Atiku wins the presidency on Saturday.
He said they decided to join Atiku because “everything has collapsed, our children spent over 10 months at home, no right thinking Nigerian will want the APC to continue in power. You see the insecurity, the Naira cash crisis. People can no longer feed. We are tired.
” We are committed to working for the success of PDP because we believe Atiku has what it takes to unify the country, he has the experience to navigate the present situation and take the country to the next level. As vice president, Atiku has shown that he has the requisite criteria to get the country moving again. APC is finished as a party.”
Reading from a prepared speech, Gwoza 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 (AONSG) under the directive of PDP Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
“The group is a formidable conglomerate of political sagacious like-minded individuals made of different supporters’ group, such as: Civil society organizations, Market women,
Civil servants, Artisan and Youth organizations.”
He said the membership strength of the group now stands at over Nine Million spread across the 36 states and Abuja and throughout the 774 local government areas.
