National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, says those who are against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari are the ones talking about legacy parties ahead the 2019 general elections.
The APC chairman appealed to all leaders of the party to discuss issues that will unite the party rather than scatter, stressing that after the merger that formed the APC, the respective parties have seized to exist.
Oshiomhole stated this when he received former members of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) led by the former deputy national chairman, Alhaji Rasaq Muse, and the minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, when they paid him a solidarity visit.
“Only those who are against President Buhari’s re-election will, at the eve of election, be talking about legacy parties. It is completely none existence and we must all work to remove it from our heart,’’ Oshiomhole said.
‘‘I know the president and we are looking at the future. When people form groups, I said it is not helpful. Those are tools to cause disunity in the party and I have never believed in groups.
“I have also read in the papers that people say they are leaving the party because of their own selfish interests. Let’s see ourselves as children of the same father and not children from different mothers. We all have a duty to help President Buhari sustain the unity within the APC so that we can get the voters particularly now that people are sponsoring all sorts of people to embarrass the President and our party.
“I know our enemies will not succeed. I am appealing to people to work for peace. Forget about legacy parties, let’s talk about the present and the future” he stated.
