President Muhammadu Buhari challenged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress and the APC state governors on the need to institutionalise the party to guarantee its survival beyond the end of his tenure in 2023.
The president gave the challenge when he received APC governors who are in the State House, Abuja, to congratulate him on the Wednesday Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal’s judgment which upheld his election.
He said to the chairman of the party and governors in return for their congratulating him, is to make sure they really institutionalise the party so that when they leave, the party will continue to lead.
In his remarks, APC Chairman Adams Oshiomhole said the judgment was eloquently, and analytically delivered to clear all doubts on the veracity of the president’s school credentials.
He, therefore, assured the president of the party’s loyalty and support.
The Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, congratulated President Buhari on the victory at the tribunal.
While describing the judgment as clinical, with surgical precision in dealing with all the issues raised, Bagudu assured the president of the support of all APC governors and other governors that had benefited from his leadership.
He said, the APC governors are here today to celebrate the victory of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which gave judgment on Wednesday.
