The emergence of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led national executive committee of All Progressives Congress (APC) has been described by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as a product of transparency, democracy and compromise.
The former vice president made the assertion in a statement of solidarity to the new APC exco which was inaugurated earlier today at the Sheraton Hotels, Abuja.
In a statement by his media office in Abuja on Tuesday, Atiku advised the newly elected party officials to sustain the tempo and public enthusiasm, which greeted the birth of the opposition party in the country.
He also expressed elation at the peaceful conduct of the elections at the party’s inaugural national convention last Friday.
Atiku said as a party member, he was proud that the elections were conducted without incidents or rancor, adding that the level of maturity displayed by APC followers was evidence of their commitment to decent democratic conduct.
The Turakin Adamawa noted that despite prediction of chaos and crisis, the convention went off peacefully without any incidents.
He, however, appealed to aggrieved members to remain loyal to the party saying there is reward for loyalty.
While calling on APC leaders and other members not to rest on their oars because the challenges ahead were still tough, Atiku warned that complacency is dangerous for an opposition party struggling to capture power and bring change.
