President Muhammadu Buhari has charged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to provide the needed leadership and ensure that the party gets its internal dynamics right to ensure “an excellent performance” in the 2019 polls.
Buhari said this in his opening remarks at the National Executive Council meeting of the APC in Abuja on Thursday.
He encouraged party leaders to ensure that decisions taken at the NEC take into account the yearnings and aspirations of party members across the country.
The President observed that the current NEC members assumed duty at a very critical time, especially with the general elections coming very early next year.
Buhari said, “Any political party worth its salt must get its internal dynamics right and march as a team towards a decisive time such as a major election in the country.
“Today, we are meeting to look at some major decisions that will ensure an excellent performance at the polls next year.
“Starting with party primaries at various levels, I urge you all to ensure that decisions taken here are those that will be for the good of the party and meet the yearnings and expectations of our teeming members and supporters nationwide.
“They look up to us for guidance and we must not disappoint or fail them.”
He expressed delight with the way the Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee has handled the crisis within the party, especially at the National Assembly.
