I am disappointed in APC.
As one of Nigeria’s youngest parties, I was expecting a Presidential candidate that would flip the elections on its head and put PDP on their toes. I was expecting an APC nomination process filled with live televised debates from potential nominees so that we get to know them better. But instead APC seems to be giving us more of the same…
The same pre-hand picked candidate strategy, the same Goodluck Jonathan no-debate stunt and the same candidate that ran for President in 2004, 2007, 2011 … and is now touted to be the likely candidate for 2015… Muhammadu Buhari!
Talk about a party of change giving us more of the same.
In fact the only change seems to be coming from the largely figure-head Vice Presidential role. But I won’t go there for now….
I will go back to the likely (if the media reports and rumors are true) APC candidate … Muhammadu Buhari. A man with the most Presidential experience of all nominees mentioned so far.
A man with Presidential experience that involves fighting corruption but also fighting press freedom. Presidential experience that involves arresting tons of corrupt Politicians but also arresting musical activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti along with several journalists. Presidential experience that saw him wage a war against indiscipline but simultaneously wage another war against government protests!
A Presidential experience that can only be used if the bad (and the bad are very bad) can be
scratched off ignored … is who APC is presenting to us in 2015!
Now, all what I have said could end up being nonsense. APC might actually start debates tomorrow, Buhari might end up not being the APC flag bearer. But with 4 months away from the elections and no debate or challenger to Buhari in sight … I end with how I started … I am disappointed in APC.
