President Muhammadu Buhari has urged members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to remain united and avoid hostility.
President Buhari made the call to delegates at the Special Convention of the APC, in Abuja, on Wednesday morning, before the voting exercise to elect the presidential candidate.
The President, who also charged delegates at the special convention to consider voting the presidential candidate with the best chances of securing victory in the 2023 general elections, said the leadership of the party must continue to forge the unity of purpose among party members and to keep securing needed compromises in the interest of the party.
He urged party officials and delegates to follow due process and abide by all extant laws and regulations pertaining to election of the party flag bearer.
The Nigeria leader said the flag bearer must be knowledgeable, fair-minded nationalist with a very strong belief in the unity of the country and strength of character and purpose to steer the country forward, noting that in every competitive event, there are bound to be winners and runners-up; and as such, urged them to maintain the spirit of sportsmanship and stand by the party for the next challenges ahead.
