President Buhari: No more imposition from Abuja
President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday, said imposition would no longer be allowed in the ruling All Progressives Congress.
He said there would be “no more crowning from Abuja.”
Buhari spoke shortly after he revalidated his membership of the the party in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State.
The President, who was accompanied by the Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, Mai Buni; members of the committee; President of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan; state governors and other party members, said he was committed to ensuring that the party is returned to the people at the grassroots.
The President insisted that the party’s structure should no longer be Abuja downwards, saying “ouur party style and structure should no longer be Abuja downwards, but from the ward level upwards. So that people can defend the party and its policies even at every level.”
Buhari again recalled how his administration inherited a country without infrastructure despite the money made by past administrations.
He reiterated his call the nation’s elite to consider such factors before criticising his administration.
