APC National chairman urges party members to close ranks in unity

Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, the newly elected National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has called on party members, especially aspirants. This was at the just concluded National Convention to show maturity and sportsmanship.

Adamu is a current Senator representing Nasarawa West in the Senate. He said this in his acceptance speech on Sunday, at Eagle Square, Abuja.

He charged aspirants who lost at the convention and party members generally, to accept the outcome of the convention with grace.

The APC Chairman congratulated those who aspired to occupy the party’s national offices. He said that although they did not succeed this time, they could succeed some other times.

“They did not succeed this time; but in God’s time, many of them would yet realise their ambitions. This is to serve our party and country in many other positions.

“As politicians, we are not strangers to gains, losses; and disappointments, of the outcome of every political contest.

“Let us show maturity and good sportsmanship and accept the outcome of this convention with grace.

“Our party needs all hands on the steering wheel; so that together we can steer the ship of state; through the inclement weather of our divisive national politics to the promised land,“ he said.

Adamu thanked the aspirants and party members for their spirit of sportsmanship. He said the new party leadership would continue to count on their co-operation as loyal party members and patriots.

He expressed gratitude to the chairman and members of the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, (CECPC), delegates to the convention, and the party’s leadership at various levels.

Adamu lauded members of the party across the country for electing him and other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) into various positions. He added that he would work hard to meet their expectations.

“On behalf of my colleagues, the newly elected members of the NWC of our great party, the APC.

“I would like to express our gratitude to Almighty God, our very sincere thanks to our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari, and Governors, in our party.

“We accept the onerous responsibility that you have placed on our shoulders; and we would work hard to ensure that we fulfilled your expectations for the greater good of our great party and of our dear country.

“As we conclude this very successful convention of our great party, I know that our opponents in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other opposition parties are now sulking, wearing long faces of sadness, bewilderment and dismay,’’ he said.
