Political leaders in Nigeria have been called upon to stay focused and uphold the ultimate objective of promoting the interest of the country, saying, Nigeria cannot afford another civil war.
President Buhari, who made the call in Abuja while receiving former State Chairmen of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), stated that the self-centeredness that led to the loss of about a million lives between 1967-1970 must not be allowed to repeat itself, stressing that the CPC was founded on the bedrock of patriotism and loyalty to the unity of Nigeria.
He asked all members of the defunct CPC and political leaders to always be mindful of the larger picture by working towards preserving the unity, peace and integrity of the nation, and thanked them for the merger that led to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Describing the President as the “Patriarch of the CPC”, the Chairman of the Forum and former Chairman of the party in Niger State, Umar Shuaibu, said the party had maintained all its structures across the country, and assured the President of their loyalty, especially in the forthcoming elections.
Shuaibu commended the President for providing strong leadership over the years, particularly in remaining balanced, fair and above board in electoral issues.
