It Is Wrong & Unfair For APC Governors, Leaders To Propose Muslim National Chairman & Muslim National Secretary For Us Says Group.
Wednesday July 26, 2023
The All Progressives Congress Network Vanguard, APCNeV has condemned in totality the proposal of the governors under the platform of the party and leaders of the party to impose former governor Abdullahi Ganduje or Senator Tanko Almakura both Muslims as the national chairman of the party and Senator Ajibola Bashiru another Muslim as the Secretary.
In a statement released in Abuja on Monday by its National Coordinator; Moses Abuh & its Publicity Secretary; Oladunjoye Oladiti, APCNeV said the proposition of such at this time is against the principle of justice and fairness within the party.
According to the statement “We received with great shock and deep disappointment, the news report about the intention of the APC leaders and Governors to ratify a Muslim National Chairman and a Muslim National Secretary for our great party, APC, this against the principle of justice and fair play. We cannot stand a situation whereby the overall boss of our party will be a Muslim and the head of the secretariat administration will also be a Muslim, it is totally unacceptable, hence we are calling on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Hope Uzodima who is the chairman. Progressive Governors’ forum to rethink and rescind their speculated decision in that regards for equity, fairness, and justice which our party stands for”.
“We urge the leadership of the party to maintain the status quo of ratifying a Muslim chairman & a Christian secretary or a Christian Chairman and a Muslim Secretary for balancing so as not to tag our party a Muslim party among the electorates, our members, well-wishers and sympathizers” APCNeV warns.
The group then expressed support and loyalty to the administration of Tinubu/Shettima which is currently running and urged Nigerians to support and pray for its success for the benefit of the country and all of us living therein.
