Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his fatherly role in keeping the party together since its formation.
Tinubu said he, Buhari, and some chieftains of the party had invested time, energy, ideas, and resources forming the APC.
In a statement, he signed titled: President Muhammadu Buhari’s Optimism About APC Commendable,” Tinubu urged members not to allow their efforts to become a waste.
The former Lagos State governor emphasized the need for APC to strengthen its internal democratic processes to remain relevant.
He said members should not allow APC to become like other political parties.
According to Tinubu: “Recently, President Buhari made a characteristically concise and important statement regarding the strength and purpose of our political party, All Progressives Congress.
“He underscored the need for the party to perfect its internal processes so that it keeps faith to the progressive purpose for which it was founded: to bring forth a better society through just and compassionate good governance.
“Again, we all should thank the president for the Sunday remarks which he made. We should take full notice of the enduring import of what he said, his eyes on his legacy, on leaving behind a worthy legacy. Let us keep the APC on its rightful path and reject any ruse or artifice that would cause the party to betray its great calling.
“Many progressive leaders had invested time, energy, ideas and resources in forming the APC with a view to providing a better Nigeria. The president is a founder of this party. I too have lent my humble bit. As founding fathers of this party, we must continue to guard its purpose.
“Let not the APC descend into the ways and rank of the other parties. Instead, may we strive to be an exemplar for a caring and democratic society. Only in this manner can we ensure the legacy of the party while leading our nation to its greater improvement.”
