President Buhari Urges APC To Brace Up For More Successes
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to brace up and work hard for the success of the party.
The President said this at a meeting with the party leaders on Monday night in Aso Villa, Abuja.
This is sequel to the announcement of dates for the 2019 general election by the Independent National Electoral commission INEC.
He urged the party leadership to organise congress, leading to the election of the party’s leaders from ward to national levels.
“Now that INEC has come out with the timetable for elections in 2019, the Party should prepare itself for congresses at Wards, Local Governments, States and Centre. We should strictly follow the constitution of the Party in undertaking these party elections. We should ensure internal democracy and avoid short cuts and illegal manoeuvres which have characterised the opposition party with the consequences that they are now divided.
“The APC has a history of conducting free and fair primaries whenever consensus about any candidacy is not reached. Regardless of the outcomes of the primary processes, it is imperative that we all work together to ensure the victory of our party,” the President stated.
