President Muhammadu Buhari has again warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders, ahead of the party’s national convention on Saturday at Eagles Square in Abuja.
In a statement on Friday, Buhari cautioned the ruling party not to do anything “that will jeopardize the chances of the party in the 2023 General Elections”.
Buhari reminded chieftains of the limited time frame of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) timetable.
He noted that the guidelines released by the electoral umpire “does not permit us any room for delay or further squabbling”.
The Nigerian leader told the party to “consistently keep their eyes on the ball and refuse any distraction”
He said all have an obligation to conduct the convention “in a manner that not only fortifies the unity of our party but also improves the prospects of our electoral fortunes in the 2023 general elections”.
“We should all do our part to ensure the success of this convention. This will fortify us for the campaigns ahead of us”, the statement added.
The warning came two weeks after the President directed stalwarts to stop the name-calling, backstabbing and infighting over the convention.
