Olabiyi Balogun, spokesman of the Buhari’s Bodyguards, on Thursday revealed that they have been fooled by the All Progressive’s Congress (APC).
Balogun, who made the revelation at the APC Presidential Campaign Office (PCO) located at the Central Business District, Abuja, said they were posted to the PCO as volunteers from the Buhari Support Organisation.
He added that they were promised automatic employment into paramilitary agencies of the Federal Government if APC wins the election, but 16 months after, we have not seen anything to show that a promise was made to them.
“This is injustice that should be condemned by all Nigerians. We have been fooled. This is another one chance and they can’t get away with it,” Balogun said.
The body guard spilled the beans when mobile policemen were deployed to the PCO to prevent them from accessing or exiting the office that accomodates the body guards and several other staff of the Presidential Campaign Organisation.
Balogun who warned against the consequence of the APC’s action, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the matter which may constitute a security threat to the nation.
He said, “Right now, we need Mr. President to appreciate our hard work for him. We need Mr. President to recognise the fact that we have lost everything because we championed the change agenda.
“Definitely, it is not just our exclusion that is a security threat to the country. Anything that would deny any man his dues and legitimate rights can be concluded to mean a security threat because when you don’t get your dues and what is rightly due to you, then you are opened to a lot of temptations. So, we are indeed a security threat.”
