2019: Buhari cautions APC caucus on illegal maneouvres
President Muhammadu Buhari has enjoined the national caucus of All Progressives Congress (APC) to abide strictly with the party’s constitution while conducting congresses at wards, local governments, states and national levels.
NAN reports that Buhari made the appeal at the opening of the APC National Caucus meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday.
He said: “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.’’
According to the President, the APC has a history of conducting free and fair primaries whenever consensus about any candidacy is not reached.
He said regardless of the outcomes of the primary processes, “it is imperative that we all work together to ensure the victory of our party.’’
President Buhari thanked the party officials and members for the successes recorded in the 2015 elections.
