All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has asked members of the party to support continuity in office of all the ward executives ahead of today’s nationwide ward congress of the party.
The party leaders also reaffirmed total support for the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Addressing newsmen yesterday in Abuja, Chairman of the FCT committee of zonal APC chairmen, Hon. Aminu Abubakar, said allowing the incumbent executive at the ward levels to continue would create harmony within the party.
“Let me say here, categorically, that the second message of this press conference is to also re-align and re-affirm our resolve to adopt the position of the stakeholders of our Party on the on-coming congresses from the Hon. Minister house in Life-Camp to Area Council and wards decision in ensuring the status-quo of maintaining the present Executives of our Party is sustained.
“This according to our belief would create harmony rather than go to elections and results into crisis. We, therefore, call on our party faithful to remain calm and avoid any act that would create functions among our ranks.”
On the decision to support President Buhari’s re-election, Abubakar said: “This committee, therefore want to re-affirm our decision as leaders of the zones to pledge our unalloyed and total support for President Muhammadu Buhari administration, and his re-election bid, the Hon. Minister of the FCT and the able leadership of our great party in the FCT under the chairmanship of Alh. Abdulmalik Usman.”
