The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) has advised its presidential candidate and former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, to reject his nomination by the Boko Haram sect as a mediator in negotiations with the Federal Government.
The National Chairman of the party, Prince Tony Momoh, gave the advice yesterday in Abuja. "We in the CPC do not see where Buhari comes in; we are concerned by the way the name of Gen. Buhari is being dragged into this affair.
"Another thing is that nobody reached out to Gen. Buhari to say they have been nominated or is being nominated along with others, to mediate or be witnesses to discussion between Boko Haram and the Federal Government," he said. Momoh said that Buhari had not told anybody or the party that he was interested in the nomination.
The national chairman maintained that the CPC would not associate with issues that involved criminality.
