At a meeting with the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) Contact and Mobilization Committee for the North West zone on Wednesday, former head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari, pledged to transform Nigeria if given the mandate in 2015.
“If given the mandate, I will uphold your trust,” Buhari said.
Buhari also insisted that the 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections were not transparent, lamenting that the fact that people’s votes were not allowed to count is responsible for the lack of meaningful development in the country.
Buhari, who is the chairman, CPC Board of Trustees (BoT), declared that the ruling party had almost collapsed the entire system and therefore stressed the need to return the nation to the path of glory.
He also called for support for the merger process.
Speaking earlier, national coordinator of the committee, Senator Solomon Ewuga, said the North-west meeting was aimed at sensitizing party members on the planned merger and set up committee members for the zone.
He announced the 2011 governorship candidate of CPC in Kaduna state, Alhaji Haruna Sa’eed, as the zonal chairman of the committee while the state chairman, Ahmadu Yaro Coca-Cola is the state coordinator.
