EKO HOT BLOG reports that the President Muhammadu Buhari has broken his silence over the crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Garba Shehu, the president warned the leaders (and membership) of the APC to desist from name-calling and backstabbing.
He reiterated that the party’s national convention would hold on March 26.
The president urged APC members to “remain steadfast and maintain unity if the party is to continue in the path of victory and its dominance at all levels throughout the country”.
The statement quoted Buhari as asking members of the party to “look at the once-powerful, main opposition Peoples Democratic Party now enfeebled and adrift and learn lessons in disunity, mismanagement and corruption”.
He said, “They (PDP) failed in 16 years in power and a failure as opposition.
“Yes, we are entitled to our own share of dissent and intra-party discord. These are common in all parties, left and right all over the world.
“But parties splintered by competing egos destine themselves to the worst possible fate.
“As the country prepares for the long run-up to the 2023 presidential election, we all expect a robust debate on the issues that matter and what is going in the APC should be a reflection of this, not the infighting we are seeing. There must be no more distractions ahead of the convention to choose new leaders.”
