We mustn’t disappoint Nigerians, Buhari tells APC leaders



President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday urged leaders of the All Progressives Congress to quickly resolve the internal crisis within the party.

He said they must avoid disappointing Nigerians.

A statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, quoted the President as speaking while addressing members of the National Executive Committee of the APC in Abuja.

Buhari warned that having won the battle of the last general elections, the APC now runs the risk of losing the “war” for party unity and internal cohesion.

The President affirmed his belief in the supremacy of the APC’s change pact with Nigerians over the personal ambitions of its members.

“As human beings, we are not perfect, but let us do our best to eventually win this ‘war’ so that we can get on with the urgent task of delivering on our electoral promises to the nation,” the statement quoted Buhari as saying.

Tracing the history of the APC from pre-merger talks to electoral victory, the President urged APC members to put their personal ambitions aside and resolve their current differences for the good of the party and the nation.

The APC Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, was said to have earlier told the gathering that President Buhari opted to attend the NEC meeting at the APC Secretariat, rather than host the parley at the Banquet Hall of the State House because he wanted to raise the spirit of party members with his presence at the secretariat.
