The group, on the platform of Southern Mandate of Nigeria (SMN), said the duo were pioneer members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) who played a major role in the merger process of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
In a statement yesterday in Abuja, signed by the national coordinator of the group, Comrade Ikonomwan Francis, described Arc Waziri Bulama as a political and administrative strategist, needed at a such critical time in the party.
“Arc. Waziri Bulama led the strategy and planing committee of APC during the establishment of the party which gave the party a very strong footing that brought the APC to winning ways in the 2015 general election in spite of its short existence.
“He is a political tactician who is well acquainted with the Principles of building a coherent party that can win election at all times.
