Buhari group alleges harassment by VIO in Abuja


Vehicle Inspection Officers

• I’m not part of suit against primaries in Enugu, says Okechukwu
• APC in U.S. seeks support for president

Supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid have alleged that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) in Abuja, are obstructing their campaigns for the president.

The members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) declared this in a protest yesterday at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja.

Its National Coordinator, Thomas Ali Danjuma, led the group, under the auspices of Collection of all Tricycle Owners and Riders Association.

According to him: “Our members in the FCT are being tormented by the VIOs, because we are supporting the APC. When they hold our members, they would say: “No be una vote Baba?” “No be una vote for change?’

The supporters donated a Tundra Jeep to the party secretariat for use in Buhari’s re-election campaign, which he claimed was bought from the contributions of members.

In a related development, the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr. Osita Okechukwu, has dissociated himself from a suit before the Federal High Court, seeking to nullify the primaries of the APC in Enugu State.

“I am not in any way connected to the suit,” he said, in an interview with journalists in Enugu yesterday.

Okechukwu, who was a senatorial aspirant in Enugu West district, made the clarification in an interview with journalists in Enugu yesterday.

Meanwhile, the APC-U.S.A chapter has urged Nigerians to support the Buhari/Osinbajo government to position the country for development in the 21st century.

They made the call in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr. Francis Onukwuli, and ex-Deputy National Chairman, South, Prof. Adesegun Labinjo, who was elected the new chairman.
