From Romanus Ugwu, Abuja
The aspirants for the vacant chairmanship position of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday renewed rivalry in Abuja, urging party members to vote for them.
Speaking after appearing a stakeholders summit organised by the APC Rebirt, those in attendance include Mustapha Saliu, Senator Sani Musa, Sylvester Moniedafe among others.
In his remarks and equally speaking on the sideline at the summit, Saliu promised to right the wrongs of neglecting party members.
“I will urge the organisers of this symposium to continue to exploit all possible means within the party to advice and guide so that we don’t wash our dirty linens in the public.
“As an aspirant, my prayer is if given the opportunity, most of these things you are yearning for we have taken note of it, we will try and see that will implement them 100 per cent and that is why we have this slogan of doing things differently.
“Politics is about inclusiveness, carrying people along, giving them a sense of belonging. We will try and see that we achieve that,” he said.
Speaking further, he said: “We will be doing things differently. As one of those that is aspiring to be the National Chairman, I hope if given the opportunity, it will be the opportunity to show that there is a reward system that can be very beneficial and can be very befitting to those who labour for it.
“APC as a party, I must commend the administration. We can’t just get it right at once, it is work in progress but I can assure you and the terming youths who have put this summit together that is work in progress and this time around they will be more involved and they will be given that sense of belonging and they will be carried along such that decisions, policies that will directly affect them, they will be part and parcel of it.
“So, for me, it is not a thing of worry. APC youths will be well rewarded and will be carried along if given that opportunity,” he said.
On his part, Senator Sani Musa, in his remarks, charged members to continue to build on the legacies of the party.
“As we approach another election, we must ensure that we does not allow our country slide back to the era of corruption and unfocused governance we witnessed during the PDP era. We must continue to build on those APC legacies.
“It is for this reason that I’m presenting myself as a candidate that can position our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to achieve the electoral and political atmosphere necessary to ensure that we consolidate and accelerate our socio-economic transformation,” he said.
