Aisha Buhari slams APC of impunity after her brother lost governorship bid

THE First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has slammed the All Progressives Congress (APC) for not providing fair and neutral arrangement for its primary elections.

The President’s wife expressed her disappointment on Twitter on Sunday, pointing out that the APC conducted sham primaries.

Her criticism of the ruling party comes after her brother, Halilu Ahmed, lost the controversial APC governorship primaries in Adamawa State to the incumbent governor, Muhammadu Bindow.

She said. “It is disheartening to note that some aspirants used their hard earned money to purchase nomination forms, got screened, cleared and campaigned vigorously yet found their names omitted on Election Day, these forms were bought at exorbitant prices,” she wrote.

“All Progressives Congress being a party whose cardinal principle is change and headed by a comrade/activist whose main concern is for the common man, yet, such impunity could take place under his watch.

“Given this development one will not hesitate than DISSOCIATE from such unfairness, be neutral and speak for the voiceless.

“It is important for the populace to rise against impunity and for voters to demand from aspirants to be committed to the provision of basic amenities.”
