The gathering tagged “All Progressives Congress Leader Meeting” had many top leaders of the party including former Head of State, Gen Muhammadu Buhari in attendance.
Others Present at the meeting are all the Interim National Executives of the party, Chairman of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu, Chairman, Former Governors Ali Modu Sherrif and Ahmed Sani Yerima, Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Ibikunle Amosun of Oyo state amongst others.
Addressing participants at the meeting, Akande said that the philosophy behind the APC is to bring the country back from the brink of collapse.
“It is common knowledge that our country has for many years now been confronted by fundamental, daunting and multi-dimensional challenges. This is clearly indicated by the recurring crises that bedevil its social fabric, political processes, structure of governance, and indeed, its economic and developmental processes.
“The result is that the nation and its citizenry continue to exist in a state of near permanent trauma.
“In its over 50 years of Independence, Nigeria has suffered seven military coups resulting in 28 years of military rule, the tragedy of a civil war, twelve constitutions, and a little over 20 years of civil democratic rule.
“Added to these are countless incidents of religious, ethnic, political and civil unrests leading to the loss of millions of innocent lives.
“Trapped in a vicious cycle of political crises, social upheavals and economic under-development, Nigeria has become, not only one of the most unstable countries in the world, it is also, regrettably, one of the poorest despite its huge human and material resource endowments.”
Akande said APC emerged to address the challenges confronting the nation.
