General Muhammadu Buhari, the leader of the Congress for Political Change (CPC), and the party’s presidential candidate in the 2011 election, told a crowd of supporters in Kaduna today that the 2015 elections will lead to mass revolt unless the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) organizes credible elections which are acceptable to Nigerians.

Buhari was addressing CPC members from Niger State, who came to wish him well after his surgery in the United Kingdom and to appeal to him to contest the 2015 elections.

A prominent member of the delegation to Kaduna told SaharaReporters what transpired at the gathering, and sent us some pictures of the event.

He said Buhari told the members in Hausa: “2015 elections will lead to mass revolt without the elections being credible and free and fair. Nigerians are tired of this mess and we must stand up and do something by chasing riggers out of power. There are several types of Boko Haram with the original one of late Mohammed Yusuf group, and there are many, but the biggest Boko Haram is the Federal Government.”

Buhari also described the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as legendary in corruption, and swindling public resources and the fortune all Nigerians ought to be enjoying.  

The party faithful, the source added, pleaded with Buhari to change his mind and contest the 2015 election.  He has stated he will quit competitive partisan politics.
