All Progressive Congress (APC) Youth leader in Bauchi State, Alhaji Nasiru Umar Gwallaga has resolved to slaughter 16 camels and distribute the meat to the people as his way of celebrating the victory of the party’s presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari in last week general elections.
Alhaji Nasiru Umar Gwallaga made the sacrifice shortly after rounding up a youth grand rally he organized to jubilate over the party and Buhari’s victory at the polls.
Speaking with newsmen shortly after the rally, Gwallaga explained that the animals will be sacrificed with a view to expressing gratitude to Allah for granting victory to Mr. Buhari over his contender Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) which would enable him to serve for another four years into second term of office.
“I sacrifice the animals in order to show my gratitude to Allah for making it possible for Buhari to win the just concluded election with landslide victory”, Gwallaga said.
“Had he was not been re-elected, Nigeria would have lost a good leader who is putting the country on the path of progress. We in the North East would have been the bad losers because of the number of projects he started here”, he asserted.
The APC youth leader who expressed appreciation to the teeming youth for re-electing Buhari during the last week’s elections, appealed to them to also come out en mass on 9th March to vote the party’s governorship and State Assembly candidates.
