Chief Tony Amadi, spokesman for the former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adamu Mu’azu, has urged the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to stop distracting the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
APC has been on warpath with the new leadership of the national assembly over the defeat of their preferred candidates for the two chambers of the National Assembly.
In a statement released in London yesterday, Chief Amadi, said that instead of working up its nerves because of the Saraki/Ekweremadu emergence as the leaders of the eighth Senate, the APC should congratulate itself because it has contributed immensely by the action to the unity of the country.
“If only the APC knows what this action means to the country at large, its leaders will stop calling for the resignation of their National Chairman Chief Oyegun and support the new Senate leadership for the greater unity and progress it will guarantee the nation.
“For instance, why should a potential Nigerian president of the calibre of Senator Kwankwaso descend so low to castigate Senators Saraki and Ekweremadu for emerging as President and Deputy President of the Senate when they are just the best pair for the enormous job needed to push the Buhari legislative agenda for Nigeria?
“In fact what former Governor Kwankwaso has done will definitely haunt him when he declares his bid for the 2019 presidency which is his ultimate goal. The APC should feel very proud of this achievement because it will enhance its ruling party credentials and show that it believes in national unity of Nigeria.
“It is equally surprising that APC’s loquacious propaganda machine led by Alhaji Lai Mohammed failed to decipher the enormous advantage the voting at the Senate on June 9 has done to their party.
“Yes the party feels worsted by the PDP advanced political strategy and Olisa Metuh, the PDP chief spin doctor’s relentless onslaught after the Senate voting, but that is not enough reason to feel bad about the unifying content of the situation at hand.
Chief Amadi said it is certain that President Buhari will be the chief beneficiary of the new National Assembly helmsmen when they get into serious business, because he saw it coming and famously allowed them to produce their leadership without party tinkering.
“Saraki and Ekweremadu will certainly promote the President’s programmes, but the APC should clean its bloodied nose and get on with the task ahead.
“Nigeria has got to the stage where only the best men or women are appointment to top positions irrespective of their political tendency, whether they are Sarakis, jagabanis or turakis. The goal now is for Buharism to be a success by 2019 when we return to the trenches for another round of voting.”
