The All Progressives Congress (APC) would be fought for in the general election of 2019 according to President Muhammadu Buhari’s yesterday pledge.
He reaffirmed his allegiance to the dominant party and emphasized that he would not desert its candidates during the election. NewsReport learned
President Buhari emphasized that those attempting to harm the party’s interests are on their own and warned them to stop.
He also warned officials of the Presidency against making controversial comments that are capable of hurting the image of government and chances of the APC. He said their utterances were inadvertently providing the opposition with grounds to undermine and reduce the chance of APC and its candidates.
The Presidency, in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said President Buhari, by his nature, will not side with anyone hurting the interests and chances of the party. The statement advised those who have defected from the party and those who have taken the party to court to pull the brake.
According to the statement, Buhari, as a loyal and committed party leader, will support and campaign for APC candidates and will support the party to enforce discipline and coordination.
“The Presidency wishes to put it on record, and at the same time, reassure faithful party members that President Muhammadu Buhari remains a ‘disciplined soldier’ of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and will, in all the coming elections, support only those candidates fielded by the party and no other.
“This is a warning to decamped party members and some others who are still in court against official candidates of the APC that they are on their own and nobody outside the party tent should link what they are doing to President Buhari.
“The President wishes to be quoted as saying that he is the ‘occupant of the high office of the President by the Grace of God who used the instrumentality of the APC to bring him to power with a historic verdict in 2015’.
“In 2019, he was returned with a bigger majority. For the first time, a non-PDP government came to power with a huge majority after 16 years of the Fourth Republic. His constant refrain is: ‘I will not betray or undermine my party by supporting candidates other than those of the APC,” the statement said.
The statement clarified that the Presidency did not direct its warning to any particular person, but anyone who might have been defaulting with the thought that the President would overlook indiscipline and acts capable of undermining the interests of the party.
“This statement is not against any particular candidate. However, our stand is clear that only those candidates fielded by the All Progressives Candidates, APC will enjoy the support of the President and they are the ones he will campaign for. However, we welcome support for our candidates at all levels by other parties.
“The President says he will continue to support the party at all levels to enforce discipline, synchronisation and coordination.
“He also directs officials in and around the Presidential Villa and all those engaging in loose talk to resist making controversial statements that eventually end up hurting the party and the government, thereby providing a weapon for the opposition to use against the administration, the party or its candidates in the coming elections,” the statement said.
