The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the endorsement of the candidature of President Muhammadu Buhari and its party All Progressives Congress (APC) by some Generals as mere name dropping.
Ex-Military officers and retired Military officers also endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari, a day after Afenifere, Ohaneze, Northern Elders Forum, Pan Niger Delta Development Forum (PANDEF) and others endorsed the PDP candidate, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar.
PDP National Publicity Secretary Kola Ologbondiyan said: “We consider this endorsement as name dropping, just to create an aura that does not exist around President Buhari. Young officers are being killed and no ex-General has spoken on how to curb the insurgency and banditry.
“Is it now that Nigerians are tired of the governance style of President Buhari that they will be endorsing him? When bandits are taking over Zamfara and even Katsina the home state of Buhari? The PDP does not believe any General worth his salt will do that,” he said.
