BUHARI, TINUBU, BISI AND OTHER APC MEMBERS PROTEST IN ABUJA

It is disheartening to hear about the flops on conducting a fair-free form of election in the biggest country in Africa!!! This has resulted in some parties voicing for a change in the electoral committee. The All Progressives Congress (APC) were denied yesterday (Thursday) from gaining entrance to the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Abuja. This was as a result of their protest angered against INEC as regards to the poor organization and rigging of the Anambra elections...
The leaders were on a peaceful protest march against the commission’s handling of the November 16 Anambra State governorship election and other forms of electoral irregularities in the country.

Those in attendance at the protest march included the party’s national leader and a former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande; a former Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd);  ex- Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Niyi Adebayo;  a former member of the House of Representatives and Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network, Otunba Dino Melaye; and former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba.
Others are a former Governor of Zamfara State, Senator Sani Yerima; a former national Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu; a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai; Senator Oluremi Tinubu; a member of the House of Representatives, Ms. Abike Dabiri; Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajiabiamila; Mr. Pally Iriase, among others.
