'Evolution of APC is for national cohension'

30 May 2013, 09:28

Kaduna- Retired Gen. Muhammad Buhari, leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), said the evolution of All Progressive Congress (APC) was not for personal aggrandisement, but for national cohesion.

He stated this at the inauguration of constituency projects by member representing Zaria at the House of Representatives, Rep. Abbass Tajuddeen in Zaria, Kaduna State on Wednesday.

Buhari, represented by CPC Chairman in Kaduna State, Ahmadu Yaro-Cocacola, said APC, if elected, was determined to foster national unity and restore hope to Nigerians.

He appealed to electorate to remain humble and peaceful during and after 2015 general election with a view to electing credible candidates into various elective positions for the good of the nation.

Buhari lauded the efforts of the lawmaker for bringing the dividends of democracy close to the door steps of his people and called on other members to emulate him.

In his speech, the Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Sani Sale, appealed to the people to join the waggon of what he described as liberation vanguard.

He said that CPC lawmakers had distinguished themselves in honour and service to humanity, hence the need for people to rally round the party.

Responding, Tajuddeen said that the gesture was aimed at giving all manner of people a sense of belonging, and gave the assurance that more dividends of democracy for his constituency were in the pipeline.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the ceremony featured presentation of gifts to winners of inter primary and secondary schools quiz and football competition.

It also featured the inauguration of ICT/skills acquisition centre, wall fence and solar bore holes, among others.
