Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC), National Chairman has urged party members to close ranks and work as a team to ensure victory in the forthcoming general elections.
Adamu made the call while speaking with newsmen after inaugurating an eight-member Abia Reconciliation Committee, on Thursday, August 4.
We have to do some works and forget some of the prejudices and stand together.
We don’t want anybody to come here after the elections and start crying and laying blames on us for our failures.
I will not listen to that, this is the time to unite, this is the time to work for unity, if we do, God will be with us.
He said ahead of inaugurating the committee, comprehensive meetings were held between the party’s leaders in Abia.
Adamu said that they were involved in negotiations and its National Working Committee (NWC), especially during its primaries and after it.
He also expressed optimism that with the inauguration of the committee, there would be peace in APC Abia.
We are not going to hold reconciliation meetings again. We will now leave it to the leaders of the party in Abia to play their politics in the state.
Abuja is not about Abia, go to Abia and play politics there, do the necessary, lobby and reconciliation there because all politics is local.
Abuja is not Abia locality, Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), we converged here from various states. Let Abia go and work together.
Adamu however, added that the party would not be satisfied with just 25 per cent of votes cast at the general elections.
All the national elections, House of Representatives, Senate, Governorship, likely the presidential election, we will not be satisfied with just the 25 per cent of votes cast.
No half way about it, if we are to win, we must try to win every state.
