A forum of non-National Working Committee (non-NWC) elected members of All Progressives Congress (APC), says the party is now back to its winning ways.
The forum, which expressed delight over the successes recorded by APC in the Ondo State gubernatorial election as well as other bye-elections, commended the Governor Mai Mala Buni led Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) for the feat.
The forum also hailed the recent decision that extended the tenure of the caretaker committee by six months.
In a letter dated 14 December 2020, addressed to the Chairman of the CECPC, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and jointly signed by its chairman, Abubakar Saadu and the Secretary, David Okumba, the forum urged the APC national executive to continue on its efforts to reposition the party for better performance.
The letter read: “We bring you warm greetings and congratulate our great party for the successful 9th emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) virtual meeting held Tuesday December 8, 2020 which came out with wide-reaching and well-received resolutions.
“Non-National Working Committee elected NEC members hails the resolution of the virtual 9th emergency APC NEC for our
reappointment in Caretaker capacity.
“We also use this opportunity to assure the Governor Mai Mala Buni-Chaired Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of our continued support as the CECPC works to unify and reposition our great party in its renewed six months mandate.
“It is evident that the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC has returned the APC to winning ways as witnessed in the Ondo
Governorship election and recent concurrent Legislative Bye-Elections; achieved great success in ongoing reconciliation efforts; returning notable party leaders and members and increasing our membership base including many high-profile new entrants. The CECPC has deservedly earned the support and confidence of our party members.
“We also commend our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari for working assiduously to give direction to our great party and return it to progressive ways. As the President tackles our current challenges, particularly in the area of security and the economy, we call on the support of all Nigerians.
“In preparation for the APC Membership Registration, Update and Revalidation Exercise which has been shifted to the second week of January 2021, our members will be on ground in our respective zones to massively mobilise our teeming party members and intended entrants for a successful exercise.”
