Following speculations that the emergence of Atiku Abubakar, Mohammadu Buhari and other prominent figures as Presidential aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, may tear the party apart, Bukola Saraki, a senator and former governor of Kwara State, has assured that instead, the party will emerge stronger after its forthcoming presidential primary slated for December 2.
“The party will not disintegrate because we are all making sacrifices every day. It is not easy to come together to take on a government with this level of impunity. We are doing this because we truly believe it is the best for Nigeria. I have utmost confidence that everyone would rally round whoever emerges as the presidential flag bearer,” he said.
Saraki, who is a former member of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said when Olusegun Obasanjo, former president, and Alex Ekwueme, a renowned politician and elder statesman contested a primary, the party did not disintegrate. “I have sat with General Muhammadu Buhari, former vice-president Atiku Abubakar and Kano State governor Musa Kwankwaso and there are assurances from them that whichever way the primary goes, they will support the party. When we merged with the legacy parties, the opposition said the party would disintegrate. After that, they said it would disintegrate at the national convention,”he said.Follow Us on Social Media
