The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu has called on Nigerians especially the Igbo nation to reject president Muhammadu Buhari and all the political parties supporting his re-election.
Nwosu said that the country must be rescued from what he described as tyranny and most oppressive government in the history of Nigeria. He added that ADC was collaborating with about 61 political parties to ensure that the tyrant was removed from the Aso Rock Villa.
The ADC national chairman who spoke in Awka on Tuesday during the unveiling of its candidates for the 2019 general elections, explained, “We can’t build a country with somebody like Buhari in this modern time.” He said rather his party would join other political parties who mean well for the country to support Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for president.
He maintained that rather than unite the nation, the APC government was neck-deep in the division, balcanisation and destruction of the polity, expressing concern that in spite of the woeful failure of the Buhari administration, it was also rather unfortunate that the Anambra state government was supporting his re-election to inflict more pain on Nigerians for another 4 years.
Nwosu equally observed that the president they wanted to continue in power has blatantly rejected appointing anybody from the southeast into the nation’s security council as well as other key positions in the present federal government.
He noted that the forthcoming general elections would be a referendum where Nigerians would stamp their feet on the ground and reject outright what he termed the authoritarian and dictatorial government of the incumbent APC-led federal government.
