The CPC presidential candidate said he would not want to go into details of the difficulties of forging the collaboration before the close of nominations for the reason that he believes in building bridges rather than cutting them.He said he strongly believes that the two parties are the most ideologically compatible and have the responsibility of providing leadership in the political space to give alternative to the people of Nigeria. “There are difficulties in time and circumstance which make it difficult for the collaboration to come through immediately but we still believe that given our mutual commitment to democracy and reconstruction of the economy, there is no option to removing the obstacles and work together,” he said.
General Buhari also restated his faith in the inevitability of the two parties working together and coalescing their electoral opportunities to create a political force that will result in the birth of a new political regime. He said, “We therefore believe that this is not time for blames and name calling as such may be a backhand service for those who want to keep Nigerians in perpetual servitude. It is more profitable to remain positive and keep the communications channels open as we focus on the bigger picture.”
It was recalled that on Wednesday, National Chairman of ACN, Chief Bisi Akande alleged that Buhari and CPC’s uncompromising frustrated the alliance talks between the two parties. Chief Akande accused the CPC presidential candidate of being rigid throughout the talks.
