Published

apcnewlogoNational Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, on Friday called on Nigerians to learn from the examples of the party’s founding fathers and move the nation forward.
He made the call in Abuja at an event organized by a coalition of Buhari Support Groups to mark the second year anniversary of the formation of the APC.
Mr. Odigie-Oyegun, who was represented by the party’s National Auditor, George Moghalu, said the party today was enjoying the unity and determination of its founders.
He, therefore, challenged all party members not to rest on their oars and rise above board to fulfill the dreams and visions of the party.
“Let us learn from the fact that they put their personal interest at abeyance so that national interest would be at the fore.
“They were united and determined. They forgave one another during the process of disagreeing to agree. They spent sleepless nights so that we could breathe the air of freedom.
“The good news is that their sacrifice paid off at the end of the day. Victory came. The victory was not accidental, we all worked hard for it.
“I call on you today to emulate those qualities above as we mark the formation of our great party two years ago.
“For us to continuously be victorious we must not rest on our oars. As you will agree with me for you to constantly be successful, you must work hard and focus on retaining your victory”, the chairman was quoted as saying at the event.
He also urged all to “plant the seeds of change” in all nooks and crannies of the country to fast-track development.
The convener of the event, Lawal Munir, said the celebration would further “enhance unity among the support groups.
“We will drive the cause of attaining unity among the support groups and work towards the progress of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration”.
The APC was formed when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) withdrew the certificates of membership of the All Nigeria People’s Party, Action Congress of Nigeria and the Congress for Progressive Change and issued a single certificate to the All Progressives Congress on July 31, 2013 following an application for merger by the aforementioned political parties.
