Why Buhari Cannot Be Playing Religion Politics -SGF

SGF Says APC Has Won, Says It Is Only Waiting For INEC’s Announcement.

Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) has expressed confidence that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has won the 2019 elections

According to PUNCH, Mustapha said this on Thursday during the Gombe state governorship campaign rally at the Olusegun Obasanjo Stadium in Kaltungo, Gombe.

He was quoted to have said the APC is only waiting for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce the results.

His words, “We are only waiting for the announcement of the results. Just make sure you come out with your PVCs (permanent voter cards) and cast your votes because the Peoples Democratic Party cannot deceive again,” 

“Today, the lies of PDP have finished because we are here in Kaltungo to uproot the roots of the PDP. In 2015, the PDP deceived you that our party, the APC was a Boko Haram party, they told you that if you voted for the APC, all of you would be Islamised, there was nothing they didn’t tell you.

“If Buhari plays politics of religion, he wouldn’t have appointed me the SGF because I am a Christian. If he were to be a religious politician, he wouldn’t have taken (Yemi) Osinbajo, a pastor, and made him the vice-president.

Naija News recalls that many comments and criticism have been playing around the theme of Buhari being political about his appointments. This is especially trended when the president removed acting Director general of the Department of State Services (DSS), Matthew Seyeifa who is from Bayelsa State and appointed Yusuf Magaji Bichi who hails from Kano State, as the new Director-General.

Closely linked  to the criticism is also the President’s  replacement or resigned Kemi Adeosun with  Zainab Ahmed As new Finance Minister, Naija News reports

The SGF however called on “You people of Gombe South, come out and vote for the APC from the top down to the bottom.”

A former governor of the state, Danjuma Goje, said Christians in the north did not enjoy key national appointments until the coming of Buhari.

“Although (Yakubu) Dogara has left the APC, he benefited from the party. He became the Speaker of the House of Representatives,” he said.
