Disagreements can lead to self-destruction – Buhari warns party

President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that the endless disagreement within the All Progressives Congress (APC) could lead to self-destruction with dire consequences if the situation is not tamed promptly.

He, however, charged all members of the party to withdraw all pending litigations against one another, and settle for internal conciliation.

These were part of President Buhari’s remarks during the party’s emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC held on a virtual platform and monitored from the State House, Abuja on Thursday.

The President, according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said the gains of the party could be reversed as conflicts overshadowed the primary objective of service to the people, urging members to refocus on the larger picture and place more emphasis on uniting the party.

“Fellow party members, this is a very crucial moment in the life of our party and it is with a deep sense of concern that I stand before you today to speak as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who has been elected on the platform of our great party – the All Progressives Congress.

“The issues currently confronting our party at this time are such that should worry every party member. At the moment, our great party is faced with internal wrangling; there are on-going litigations amongst some party members and we cannot clearly ascertain the status of certain National Working Committee (NWC) members,” he said.

The President expressed worry over the shifting loyalty within the party and inconsistency in leadership, which had opened the governing party to mockery.

“There are also other associated disputes as to the legitimacy or otherwise of holders of certain National Offices of the Party. The Party is also contending with Judicial claims and counter-claims, Orders and Counter-Orders and indeed Judgments and Counter-Judgments that are predominantly at cross-purposes.
