The Scandinavia chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has described the current crisis rocking the party as something that would further strengthen it.
The statement was made on Thursday by the National Coordinator, APC Scandinavia, Mr. Ayoola Lawal, during a caucus meeting in Sweden.
According to Lawal, Nigerians and the International communities should not be exceedingly alarmed at the crisis facing the party because “Crisis is normal in any system and we want to assure everyone that APC will overcome this current crisis and come out stronger and better than it was known before now”.
He further stated that “Nigerians are yearning for change that APC promises and indeed we shall deliver on our promises.
“For us at APC, the current trend of behaviours of some of our lawmakers and Senators are separable challenge and a test of the resilience of our party leadership, which Nigerians can testify to over the years even before we won the last general elections at the federal level.
“The party is a party of orderliness and that is why we are still this coordinated. If this sort of crisis befell another party in this country even the former ruling party, it would have grown out of hands”.
The coordinator further noted that it is, however, pertinent that everyone in the party respect the party leadership and act in agreement with laid down rules and regulations as contained in the party’s constitution as no individual or group is above the party.
“We implore every lawmaker and all Senators elected on the platform of the APC to maintain the level of orderliness associated with this party.
“We urge Nigerians to have patience and pray for the success of PMB led administration. The sacrifices made by Nigerians, the trust and the hope of change placed upon APC shall not be betrayed”.
