The All Progressives Congress, APC, has finally reacted to the formation of Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP by the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, members of reformed APC and about 37 other political parties and groups to oust the President Muhammadu Buhari government in 2019.
In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the ruling party said it is unfazed by yesterday’s political development at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua centre, stressing that the APC remains united under Buhari ahead of the 2019 general elections.
APC said: “We respect the right of everyone to join any association or group. However, we wish to reiterate that the so-called R-APC is not a faction of our Party. Our Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) remains united under the leadership of our President, H.E. Muhammadu Buhari.
“It is also noteworthy that some political parties that have been named as signatories to the MoU have disassociated themselves from the publicised deal.
“We once again reiterate the commitment of our Party to address real grievances of our genuine members. We call on them to take advantage of this opportunity while the windows for reconciliation are still open.
“We are confident that no level of gang-up can make our government under President Buhari to waiver in its promises to Nigerians to rid our country of corruption and improve the quality of lives for our people.”
