The Presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), yesterday spoke on the reforms in Egypt, urging Nigerians to learn from the revolution which swept President Hosni Mubarak away. He also advised Nigerians to vote out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in April.
Buhari added that as the historic moment beckons in April, Nigerians must insist on free and fair elections that will usher in accountable leadership that will bring about good governance:
"Unlike the Egyptians, who went through self-denial for 18 unbroken days to achieve their aspiration for leadership change, Nigerians just have to take their voter’s cards, vote on each election day and ensure that their votes count and are properly counted. It is time to demonstrate people’s power to free our country from those who have held it hostage for the last 12 years and are threatening to keep it so for 60 year".
