The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has warned members of the ruling All Progressives Congress against name-calling and backstabbing, saying the National Convention of the party must hold on March 26 as scheduled.
A statement issued Saturday evening by  Buhari’s  Senior Special Assistant on Media, Garba Shehu, noted that  the president  had warned the leaders and members of APC to desist from “name-calling and backstabbing.”
According to Shehu, the president urged APC members to “remain steadfast and maintain unity if the party is to continue in the path of victory and its dominance at all levels throughout the country.”
He also urged members to  “look at the once-powerful, main opposition Peoples Democratic Party now enfeebled and adrift and learn lessons in disunity, mismanagement and corruption… “They (PDP) failed in 16 years in power and (are) a failure as opposition,” Buhari said.
“Yes, we are entitled to our own share of dissent and intra-party discord. These are common in all parties, left and right all over the world.
“As the country prepares for the long run-up to the 2023 presidential election, we all expect a robust debate on the issues that matter and what is going in the APC should be a reflection of this, not the infighting we are seeing. There must be no more distractions ahead of the convention to choose new leaders.”
