Immediate past National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Alhaji Sadiq Abubakar has dissociated himself from plans for a legal challenge to the dissolution of the National Working Committee, NWC.
Abubakar in a statement made available to GWG strongly endorse the initiative of President Muhammadu Buhari saying that youths and other members of the NWC to back the president’s reforms in the party.
“As the National Youth Leader in the dissolved NWC, I call on my immediate constituency, the youth, my colleagues of the dissolved NWC as well as other party members, to accept the decision of NEC and support the Caretaker/Extra-ordinary National Convention Planning Committee headed by H.E. Mai Mala Buni, the Governor of Yobe State, he said.
“Having been a two-time National Secretary of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni sure knows the intricacies of running a ruling party and also understands the nuances of the varied interests in the party. In fact, having served under two National Chairmen, he represents a bridge between the distant past, the recent past and the present.
“If our party must move forward, we must support the fatherly admonition by President Muhammadu Buhari to the effect that all those who instituted various lawsuits against the party and its leadership drop same forthwith. For, if we tear the party apart, we would have played into the hands of the opposition whose sole agenda is to “capture” power at the centre and again return the country to the years of the locusts.
“It is neither in our interest nor in the interest of electoral democracy to seek to destroy our party and the legacies of Mr. President by instituting lawsuits in the aftermath of a troubleshooting NEC meeting which outcome turned out a win-win for all sides.”
