#APCNationalConvention: President Buhari Showers Accolades On Delegates
President Muhammadu Buhari has commended all the APC delegates that emerged from the wards, local government, the state Congresses from the 36 states of the federation and the FCT who in turn represented the party’s highest ranking constitutional organ to elect and usher in new leadership for the party at the national level.
He made this disclosure during his speech at the Party’s National Convention at Eagle Square in Abuja.
The President further acknowledged their commitment, sacrifice, travelling all the way from their destinations and even patience in the rain during the convention.
He betoned that it was the party’s second national convention and the first since he rode on its glorious platform in the victorious political outing in 2015, consequently congratulated all those who worked and contributed to the success.
The President further applauded the convention committee under the leadership of His Excellency, Governor Badaru Abubakar for providing a level playing field and instilling confidence in both aspirants and delegates with their thorough approach and adherence to transparency.
President Buhari said that the adoption of consensus as a first option is commendable because it will bring about clear and undisputed results and therefore appealed to all to put the party ahead of personal considerations and accept the outcome of the exercise in good faith.
He assured that the party will emerge stronger after the convention despite a few lingering issues with the congresses in some states and implored those with grievances to keep faith with the party until things are placed right.
PMB therefore extended his sincere appreciation to the outgoing National Executives of the party for their tireless efforts in securing victory for the party at the last elections and managing the success thereafter and urged all to come together and work with the newly elected executives to ensure success in the forthcoming polls so as to enable continuity of the good work being done for the nation and her citizens by the APC-led Administration.
