We don’t have godfathers in APC — El-Rufai

Mr. Nasir El-Rufai

The Protem  National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress and former Minister of  FCT, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, said on Saturday  there would  be no  room for godfatherism in the  party.
El-Rufai who represented  the Protem National Chairman of the APC, Bisi Akande, at a national conference  organised by the Movement for  a  Better Future in  Kaduna on Saturday, said,  “Nobody will take the APC and put it in his pocket. We will have no godfathers in this party. All those who want to be godfathers should go the PDP.”
He said the leadership of the party had issued  guidelines to  set up  a Harmonisation Committee in the 36 states of the federation to ensure the fusion of the  three parties that make up the APC.

He added that the national leadership of the party would soon conclude work on the committee and appealed to members to desist from making comments or giving the impression that leaders had been selected for the party at various  states “because no leader has emerged yet.”
He also noted that leaders of the APC would  emerge from the Harmonisation Committee, being worked out by the leadership of the party.
”The national executive has issued guidelines for the setting up of harmonisation committees in the various states.
“The harmonisation committees are not caretaker or interim committees, but just harmonisation committee. The objective is to ensure the fusion of the three parties into one political party.
“They are to ensure that meetings take place at all levels. By next week, we hope to finish work on the harmonisation committee for them to start work right away, ” he said
Speaking on the  theme, ‘Nigeria: the new vision,’  a  former governor of Kano State and member of the merger committee of the All Progressive Party, Mr. Ibrahim Shekarau  decried the security situation in the country, saying the PDP-led government was a “total failure.”
He noted that the only answer to the failure of the government was to get the right people  on the front seat of governance in the next political dispensation.
