Tinubu warns APC on internal democracy, fairness

Bola Tinubu, a presidential aspirant, has warned his party, the All Progressives Congress on ensuring internal democracy and fairness within its fold.

He said in the wake of a surprised leadership change that saw Yobe Governor Mail Mala Buni being replaced with his Niger counterpart, Governor Sani Bello as chairman of the APC national caretaker committee.

“Recently, President Buhari made a characteristically concise and important statement regarding the strength and purpose of our political party, APC,‚ÄĚ he said.

“He underscored the need for the party to perfect its internal processes so that it keeps faith in the progressive purpose for which it was founded: to bring forth a better society through just and compassionate good governance.

“Our party came into being to answer the call of reform so that progressive governance for the good of all Nigerians could be established in the land. President Buhari won the 2015 election and was re-elected. But the essential task of fundamental reform and improvement of society has not been completed.

“We still have vital work to do. But the work can only be done by a party which is democratic and fair in governing itself as well as in governing the nation.

“This means that while people pursue their political goals they must also and always keep the greater collective purpose in mind. Let us be guided by the progressive and enlightened reason for the party.

“The president is a founder of this party. I too have lent my humble bit. As founding fathers of this party, we must continue to guard its purpose.

‚ÄúLet not the APC descend into the ways and rank of the other parties. Instead, may we strive to be an exemplar for a caring and democratic society,‚ÄĚ he said.
