Wife of the President , Mrs. Aisha Buhari , on Sunday faulted the manner in which some of the primaries of the ruling All Progressives Congress was conducted.
She particularly took a swipe at the party ’ s National Chairman , Adams Oshiomhole , who she accused of allowing impunity under his watch .
Mrs. Buhari made her position known in a series of tweets she posted on her verified Twitter handle , @ aishambuhari , on Sunday .
She regretted that Oshiomhole , despite his activism background , could allow such conduct under his leadership .
She said the conduct negated the principle of change that the APC stands for .
The President ’ s wife, whose brother contested the governorship primary in Adamawa State and lost to the incumbent , however , did not mention the specific cases she was referring to.
She , however , called on Nigerians to rise against impunity and for voters to urge aspirants to be committed to the provision of basic amenities .
Mrs. Buhari 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 the election day . These forms were bought at exorbitant prices.
“Many others contested and yet had their result delayed. Fully knowing that automatic tickets have been given to other people .
“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 such as: potable drinking water, basic health care ( Primary Health Care centers)
“Given this development , one will not hesitate than dissociate from such unfairness, be neutral and speak for the voiceless.
“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 its watch .
