National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the future of Nigeria is not in the hands of retired Generals but in the hands of the electorate.
Oshiomhole also alleged that some retired Generals and former Heads of State are against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He made this known on Saturday during the APC Presidential Campaign in Minna, Niger State.
He said that there was a plan to replay what occurred when Buhari was the Military Head of State and was removed due to his strict anti-corruption strategies.
“Many of the retired Generals are ganging up against President Buhari, that he will not do eight years while they did more than eight years.
“I remember they did it in the past but this time, the plan will not work. The future of Nigeria is not in the hands of retired Generals or former Heads of State. It is in the hands of the general people.”
The APC National Chairman added,”If Atiku had seen the mammoth crowd in Kaduna and Bauchi States that welcomed us, he would prefer to remain in the United States of America.”
He alleged that Atiku is working with Obasanjo to rig the elections as they did before, “everywhere PDP goes, they are saying the elections will be rigged. We need to play those videos of where Obasanjo and Atiku said that election must be won.”
Oshiomhole, however, stated that the APC does not need to rig an election as they remain a firm believer of one man, one vote.
He said, “We remain a firm believer of one man, one vote, one woman, one vote and one former head of state, one vote.”
In his address, President Buhari urged the people of Niger State to vote for him and the APC, promising to complete all the road networks across the state.
