President Muhammadu Buhari warned the ruling All Progressives Congress’s new National Working Committee, NWC, on Saturday against allowing “highest bidders” to influence the party’s primaries.
President Buhari issued the warning during the APC’s 2022 National Convention in Eagle Square, Abuja, which just ended.
Buhari asked the new APC leaders to constantly foster internal democracy and equal opportunity for all members of the party, and to always embrace the spirit of sportsmanship, even if they did not receive a party ticket.
“l passionately appeal to you all to support the incoming National Working Committee, NWC to promote unity and avoid sentiments that are capable of causing disaffection and disunity.
”For those aspiring for party and public offices, your failure to realize such aspirations for Party offices or to fly the Party’s flag, should not be a basis for a campaign of calumny against our party.
”We should have the spirit of sportsmanship and always support the party to succeed, ” he added.
