Pacify aggrieved members – CPC tells Buhari

By Bode Olagoke


The Legacy Forum of the defunct state chairmen of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take immediate and proactive measures to pacify aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop them from leaving the party en mass ahead of the 2019 general election.
In a communique at the end of their meeting in Abuja, yesterday, the forum said the President must assist the party in resolving the crisis rocking state chapters of the party, pointing out that if this is not done, it might affect the chances of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
Only last week, former Vice President, Atiku’s Abubakar, resigned his membership of the party, accusing it of failing the Nigerian people and many believe that he may head back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fulfill his presidential ambition.
The forum’s Coordinator, Ahamed Haruna Zago, who read the communiqué, said while they appreciate the successes so far recorded by the government he must take steps to address complains ahead of the next election.
“The Forum appreciates improved security situation in Nigeria, stressing fight against corruption and all vices in governance was gaining success as is steady growth in the economy that led to Nigeria exiting recession.
“The Forum appeals to the President to, as a matter of urgency, assist the All Progressives Congress (APC) to resolve all the crises in the thirty six states chapter of the party with a view to repositioning the party for the next general election in 2019.
“We of the Legacy Forum are not happy that people are leaving the party. We recall that it is a repeat of similar event in 2013/2014 that led to the defeat of the PDP in the 2015 general elections”.
