The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, has called on African leaders to improve the well-being of their people through good governance to tame the rising military intervention in the continent.
Ganduj said this when the national chairman of the ruling party in Ghana, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Stephen Ntim, paid him a courtesy call yesterday at his residence in Asokoro, Abuja.
In a statement by his chief press secretary, Edwin Olofu, the APC national chairman, decried the living conditions of most Africans and urged leaders at all levels in Africa to work assiduously to provide good governance to ameliorate the suffering of the people.
“You are breaking the ice between leaders of political parties in Africa. Political parties are the fulcrum of democracy to stop military intervention in Africa.
“We need to provide good governance to our people to make military coups less attractive in Africa,” Ganduje stated.
The chairman further traced the long history between Nigeria and Ghana, noting that both countries share a lot in common.
On his part, Ntim who was accompanied by the Ghana Ambassador to Nigeria, Rashi Bawa stressed the need to collaborate with the ruling APC in Nigeria to retain power in Ghana.
“APC and NPP should be able to share ideals so that we can remain in government for the long term. We will learn a lot from APC,” Ntim said.
