Why we may not vote APC, in 2019, Abuja natives warns
By Ateko Usman-Ejima
Natives of the Federal Capital Territory have said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) should not approach them for votes in 2019, if their pressing needs were not channeled to President Muhammadu Buhari for immediate attention.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Friday, the spokesman of the group, Ahmadu Yunusa Yusuf, said the natives under the aegis of Abuja Indegenous Association (AIA) have already lost confidence in the APC-led administration for failure to address their challenges, especially failure to give them a ministerial slot. ￼The group expressed disappointment at their political leaders for not protesting to President Buhari when they were denied of Ministerial slot.
He said: “the natives had expected that by now the FCT party stakeholders would team up and make a protest visit to the president, seeking a ministerial slot for the people of the territory.”
They urged their political leaders to take action or risk protest against the APC government the shortest period of time.
“We can’t imagine that none of these council chairmen has ever gone to the media asking Mr. President to appoint an FCT indigene as minister. And we want to make it categorically clear that we will not vote APC come 2019 election,” he added.
