The APC National Convention has come and gone. We give glory to God for a successful conduct of the election.
We congratulate both the outgoing and incoming national leadership of our party, the APC, President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and all leaders of thought who ensure a hitch-free convention.
We congratulate particularly Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the Publicity Secretary-elect. His re-election by an overwhelming majority of our party members across the 36 states of the federation and Abuja is a testimony to his competence, doggedness and astuteness as our party’s spokesperson.
We urge the winners to be magnanimous in victory. They should embrace and accommodate their co-contestants in the scheme of things, as we all move forward towards nation building.
Finally, we reiterate that the Comrade Adams Oshiomole-led APC is coming at a time of alot of storms in the party which if not properly handed, and quick, might affect the chances of the party in the next polls.
The conduct of the Convention and the drama that heralded it before, during and after the elections have raised alot of dust that the party leadership has to set about quickly remedying.
There’s an urgent need to restore the party to the default setting of sanity, supremacy and constitutionalism. A situation where ‘monkeys’ will be toiling day and night at the grassroots mobilising for the party but some ‘baboons’ will be sitting arrogantly in Abuja without lifting a finger and yet dragging party structure with genuine party members should be done with already.
We are hopeful that the new leadership of the party will set about quickly righting the so many wrongs bedevilling the party across the country without fear or favour.
It is only through this that the future and posterity of our party is guaranteed!
God bless the All Progressives Congress
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria
