Second republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohamned, has charged former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bisi Akande; national leader of the Party, Bola Tinubu; and other leaders of the APC in the South West not to over-rate their contributions towards the making of the Buhari Presidency.
According to him, other regions also played significant roles during the 2015 presidential polls.
In an interview with New Telegraph newspaper, Mohammed said that whereas the average votes garnered by Buhari in Lagos and other SW state was about 700, 000, Kano gave him two million votes.
“Kano and Lagos have the same population and if Kano people are not making noise, why should the South-West be making noise about it? But in any case, was Buhari given the ticket because people thought he had something to offer or was it based on sentiments?
“After all, there are people who will come and vote for him, no matter what he has to offer, his performance or non-performance. You don’t do such a thing in the 21st Century,” he said.
Mohammed said that “the South-West having been part of the plot in the conspiracy to give Nigeria a leadership that is below standard cannot resort to making noise now as if they were members of another party.
“Instead, they should take control of their party to ensure that everybody who wants to contest any position has a good and equal opportunity in 2019.”
