BuhariA Christian Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, Each forth Nigeria, has thrown its weight behind the presidential bid of General Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd.) on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The group urged the leadership of APC to adopt the former head of state as its flag bearer in the 2015 presidential election.

National Chairman of the organisation, Rev. Yunana Oganto, said in a statement that events at the declaration of intention by Buhari at the Eagle Square last week, were clear indications of his acceptability across the country.

He said: “It must be emphatically stated that the APC has no option in deciding who the presidential candidate should be, as the issue is finally being settled by the Nigerian masses”.

Rev. Oganto, however, stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) would need to collectively take a decisive and pragmatic decision by adopting the proposal by the Nigerian masses, as represented in General Muhammadu Buhari’s candidacy.
