Bauchi APC group preaches unity to clinch power in 2023



An All Progressives Congress (APC) affiliate group in Bauchi State known as APC Club has urged members to shun divisive tendencies capable of affecting electoral chances of the party.

The Chairman of the group, Alhaji Shaifudeen Ibrahim stated this during the Club’s annual summit in Bauchi on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the theme of the summit is “Importance of unity for electoral victory in the post-Buhari Era.”

He noted that divisiveness might mar the electoral chances of the party hence, the imperative of cohesion and unity in the ruling party.

“Unity remains a vital ingredient that will lead to victory of the party in the forthcoming 2023 general elections,” he said.

Ibrahim said that stakeholding, commitment and dedication among the party loyalists would strengthen unity and ensure that the party delivered its campaign promises based on its manifesto.

“The ties of unity need to be strengthen and consolidated for the success of our party,” he said.

Ibrahim said that the party had in the last six years performed, especially on building of infrastructure, agriculture, the fight against corruption and terrorism.

“I am of the view and strong conviction that the party’s interest supersedes that of any individual and it will overcome its current challenges.

“We should respect party supremacy and interest so that we can retain power and maintain a united front,” he said.

Also Speaking, Alhaji Bashir Riminzayam, an APC stalwart, urged the youth to always refer to history for acquiring political knowledge and background.

“Those who fail to read history are bound to suffer the repetition of their mistakes. We lost the seat of governor to the opposition due to intra-party wrangling,” he noted.

Riminzayam called for sober reflection and a solid united front to fight the future electoral battles to deliver the party to victory.

Mr Habu Mamman, a Party Chieftain, noted that the importance of unity could not be overemphasised, hence the need for the party to restrategise ahead by burying the hatchets.

“I pray and hope that we will have lasting peace, unity and stability in the party to capture governorship position in Bauchi by 2023,’’ Mamman said. (NAN)
