Kano State Governor, Abdulahi Umar Ganduje, on Sunday, told aspirants unde the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to bury the hatchet and work for the progress of the party.
He equally declared that there was no better presidential candidate than President Muhammadu Buhari.
Ganduje spoke after the peace and reconciliation received myriads of complaints from members of the party in Enugu State.
Veloxnews reports that the aggrieved aspirants had demanded a refund of the money they paid for nomination and expression of interest forms as a first step towards genuine search for peace.
However, in his response, Ganduje said misunderstanding was part of every family.
“Election is around the corner, if you continue to disagree, INEC does not wait for anybody, but what it means is that you will have to wait for another four years, no system is perfect.
“In politics, one very important thing is patience. If you are not patient, you lose direction
We are learning democracy, that’s why we are having full of mistakes. A lot of irreconcilable differences occurred during the primary, changing people’s names, writing lists.
He urged the party to make regular meetings a priority, stressing “if there is constant meeting, you know yourselves, not a situation where you leave it until election, everybody will go and buy form, that’s why you end up in this kind of situation.”
He used the event to appeal to the Southeast to support Buhari, who he said was passionate about the zone.
“We want to return southeast to the mainstream. Buhari took Igbo man twice to be his running mate, but he was not given the support, that’s how that opportunity was lost.
“There is no better Presidential candidate than Buhari today. He loves Nigeria more than himself, not a tribalism, does not accumulate wealth, he is working on the economy, to make the country prosperous.
“He is building railway, in the next level, every state capital will have a working rail system. PDP did nothing as far as infrastructure is concerned.
Political revolution is going on in southeast, because many people are embracing APC. So, we have to put our house in order, support all our candidates.”
Earlier in a remark, the State chairman of the APC, Dr, Ben Nwoye told the committee that the members were disposed to the peace process.
Nwoye said, “you brought peace, you have laboured so much for this party. Enugu is the capital of Igbo land, so, once we get peace here, it will spread to all the other states in the zone.”
