Why We Surrender To Buhari Consensus candidate
Abdullahi Sule, Nasarawa State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Convention Planning Committee’s Media Committee, has explained why governors on the ruling party’s platform accepted President Muhammadu Buhari’s choice of former Nasarawa State Governor, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, as the party’s next chairman.
The convention will take place in Abuja on Saturday.
Governor Sule, speaking to reporters about his Committee’s election preparations, said those who have reservations about the adoption of Senator Adamu as the Consensus candidate will eventually agree with his choice because of the tremendous respect Buhari enjoys among stakeholders.
“What our party has that other parties don’t is that we have a political leader and father who is respected by everyone who is truly a member of this party, and that is President Muhamadu Buhari,” he said.
“We are confident that he will not act solely for self-interest, greed, or anything that is detrimental to the party’s interests.” He is concerned with maintaining the party’s unity. As a result, he isn’t acting in his own self-interest. That is the type of leader we have, which is why when he speaks, everyone pays attention because they know he is not speaking for personal gain. That is his request, and I assure you that it will be honoured because we know he is acting in the best interests of the party.”
The Nasarawa State Governor also assured party supporters that everything would be done to persuade other Chairman candidates to formally withdraw in order to comply with certain provisions of the Electoral Act.
“When it comes to the Electoral Act, we are a law-abiding political party,” he explained. We will do whatever is necessary to comply with the Electoral Act. We will not do anything as a political party that will be in violation of the law because, as the ruling party, we will not do anything that will be detrimental to our country’s laws so that we do not set a bad example. You can rest assured that everything we do will be in accordance with the Electoral Act.”
He also hinted that the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, led by his Yobe State counterpart, Mai Mala Buni, would be willing to refund nomination fees paid by Chairmanship aspirants and others who might lose out in the Unity List being prepared, would be willing to do so.
“The refund of aspirant fees; this was a request made by Mr President in order to demonstrate leadership.”
He explained that once we’ve reached an agreement, it’s only fair that they get their money back. Mr. President had made a request to the party’s leadership, and the leadership was present. So I’ll say that the party’s leadership agreed as well.”
