The South-West zonal leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday, lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for the successful completion of the party’s special national convention and presidential primary election.
The zonal chapter of the party, through its chairman, Hon. Isaac Kekemeke, said the party has been re-invented by the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the party’s presidential flagbearer for the 2023 general elections.
While saying history was made in Nigeria and the party with the emergence of Tinubu, Kekemeke said the Northern Governors deserve commendation for their altruistic and patriotic resolute resolve to transfer presidential power to southern Nigeria.
Kekemeke said the Southern governors indeed piloted the Nigerian plane off bad weather with its imminent dangers.
According to him, “The South-West zonal executive committee wishes to express its gratitude to the entire leadership and membership of the APC in Nigeria.
“We express our gratitude to Mr President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, the leader of the party for deepening and entrenching internal democracy by insisting on a level playing ground for all aspirants at the just concluded APC national convention. Mr President demonstrated that as a father, he is a friend to all and a foe to none.
“The Southern governors salvaged our party and Nigeria from avoidable crisis through their desire for a united Nigeria based on equity and fairness.
“Their sacrificial position must inspire all irrespective of tribe, religion, and status to work for a united Nigeria.
“The South-West APC appreciates our esteemed leaders and members of the progressive governor’s forum for providing the critical leadership that birthed the victory that we all savour today. Thank you, progressive governors.
“The national chairman of the party HE, Senator Abdulahi Adamu and the entire membership of the National Working Committee do not deserve any less gratitude and appreciation. They organised an open, fair, and transparent special convention for the presidential primary election that has become a baffle for those who do not wish APC well.
“There are so many other patriotic and visionary leaders who can be best described as progressive in body and spirit, who walked the long walk side by side with our leader- Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu into this victory. God will bless and reward them.
“Finally, we salute the courage, determination, sense of patriotism and high sense of duty of the delegates. They were the ultimate deciders and end-workers of this eventful victory.
“The South-West executive of our great party can safely assure the All Progressives Congress and Nigeria indeed, that the journey for a better, peaceful, and prosperous Nigeria has just begun.”
