The presidential candidate of Sustainable National Party of Nigeria, SNPN, in the 2019 general elections, Ahmed Buhari, has revealed why he refused to collaborate with other political in the build-up to the polls.
Buhari had walked out of Presidential Aspirants Coming Together, PACT, a force meant to sack the two leading political parties in the country.
Buhari, who was quoted by Vanguard, added that he was disappointed when people like Kingsley Moghalu,”told me that he was clearly the best candidate and that we should all step down for him.”
He added, “My main reason for walking out of PACT was our denial on what the political realities are.
“Political realities are those clear indicators that determine the outcome of our politics.
“Again, I was disappointed when people like Kingsley Moghalu told me that he was clearly the best candidate and that we should all step down for him. Right there I knew we weren’t going anywhere.
“If we needed to make the required impact, we had to have been completely real with ourselves and understand that emotions and sentiments have no place in politics.
“If we cannot stretch our hands out in friendship with all people regardless of their ethnicity, faith, age bracket and political party affiliations then we aren’t prepared to unite and move Nigeria and Nigerians forward.”
