The immediate past acting chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Victor Giadom, yesterday commended President Muhammadu Buhari for rescuing the party from what he described as ‘fallen party’.
Speaking when he handed over the leadership of the party to the caretaker Committee led by the Governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni, Giadom said “I’m grateful to God, President Muhammadu Buhari and leaders for rescuing our party from what would have fallen the party.”
He said today, the party has been repositioned to greater height, saying “I can assure you with calibre of people so selected by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to pilot the leadership of this party into the National Convention.
“I feel indeed grateful and reassured that our party will remain strong and stronger and come out from the crisis which we were all in, in the past few months better than where we were before. I’m more grateful to the members of our party and decision of NEC.
“All immediate past NWC should be able to learn from our mistakes, including my humble self, to join hand with the Caretaker Committee to see how they strengthen the party.
“The party is bigger than all of us. So, it is our collective responsibility as former members of NWC to work hand in hand with the committee to see to the success of the committee.
“APC is a larger family and in every family, there is bound to be disagreement and what is important is ability of the family to come to agreement. Today, with the formation of caretaker committee, we are close to agreement and I’m sure this committee will do the needful and our party will become stronger”, he said.
