All progressives Congress National Chairmanship aspirant, Chief Clement Ebri has called on the members of the New People’s Democratic Party in APC to tarry a little.
The former governor of Cross River State made the appeal in a press statement made available to the media yesterday.
The members of the new PDP, who had joined APC in 2014 before the general elections on Wednesday decried the neglect and persecution in APC, thus giving the party and the President, Muhammad Buhari, a seven-day ultimatum to address their concerns and grievances.
But in a swift reaction to their grievances, Clement Ebri, who is aspiring to lead APC in the next dispensation stated that a new dawn has come to APC.
According to him, “this is not the time to give threat or ultimatum but time to come together and elect a leader that would salvage the party”.
He said, as a former governor and a former National Chairman of a political party, he understands human and resource management, which he is willing to deploy in administering APC.
According to him, APC is in dire need of leaders who would unite the party and not those who would cause more division in the party.
The statement read in part, “l want to appeal to the members of the nPDP in APC to tarry a while as a new dawn is about to come to the party.
“I have seen the concerns and grievances, as those are reasons l am offering myself for the service for APC national chairmanship.
“I want to assist to build a party that would be all inclusive, where the existing dichotomy of members wouldn’t be. The party has stayed long on the verge that some members are CPC, ACN, ANPP, nPDP, etc.
“As one who was governor in 1992 and former national chairman of a political party, l have the temperament to lead APC and assist the President, Muhammmadu Buhari to deliver his promises and the APC manifesto to Nigerians.
“I’m using this opportunity to call on party chieftains, stalwarts, leaders and members to consider a man who has no bargages or controversies around him as its national chairman.”
Meanwhile the Northern APC Youths Movement and the APC Grassroots for Change have thrown their weight behind the former governor of Cross State.
The groups which are supporting Ebri said that he is more qualified to lead the party.
According to them, the President and other leaders of APC should see Ebri as a better national chairman to work with than any other aspirant.
