Internal crisis will not affect APC’s chances in 2023, Bagudu says
Atiku Bagudu, governor of Kebbi, said the current internal feuds within the All Progressive Congress (APC) would not affect the party in the 2023 election.
Bagudu spoke on Wednesday while answering questions from State House correspondents at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He said dissent and differences of opinion are part of party politics.
According to him, rather than disintegration, the current disagreements will make the ruling party better and lead to the progress of the country.
He said that despite the problems affecting the party, the CPA under the current national interim committee has attracted more people, including sitting governors and lawmakers.
“First of all, know that the distinction between democracy and possibly other forms of government is that there will be differences of opinion and the hope that such differences of opinion will occasionally bring out the better or move society forward, ”he said. .
“We have been a party that recognizes that there will never be one voice and we are not praying that there is one voice. We pray that people can speak up, bring in different ideas, even when there is a conflict with those ideas within the systems created by democracy, we sit down and iron them out.
“Suggest that because there are dissent or differences of opinion, that it will affect the fortunes of our party, I think this is quite far-fetched.” We are a party that recognizes that in order to continue to deliver, we have to debate, we have to compete, and we have to bring ideas to government.
“Remember, remember that in the last two years in particular, under the current Acting Committee Chairman Mai-Mala Buni, three sitting governors, one sitting deputy governor, a number of senators in office, members of the National Assembly, the former present, the former who have joined the party.
“This is the best proof that this party continues to keep the promises that Nigerians have given us, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
