A former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar, has said that it is dangerous for any individual or group within the APC to constitute themselves into an opposition even before the constitution of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government. He also expressed his loyalty to President Buhari.
The former Vice President made the call against the backdrop of development in the polity, which he noted were interplay of forces and dynamic interests that should not be promoted to the point of being a threat to democracy and the new administration.
In a press statement released by his media office in Abuja on Sunday, and signed by Mazi Paul Ibe, the Turaki Adamawa acknowledged that it was legitimate and desirable for individuals or groups to pursue their interests.
He, however, noted that such should be done with the spirit of equity, fair play and justice.
“Anything to the contrary may jeopardize our hard-earned democracy and constitute a clog in the wheel of the new administration,” Atiku said.
He noted that because of the historic nature of the mandate of President Buhari and the arduous challenges ahead to deliver on making Nigeria work for all Nigerians, it was important, especially for members of the APC, to rally behind him in the quest to enthrone good governance.
This, he said, would spur security and stability, economic and social development, job creation, infrastructure renewal and above all a better life for Nigerians.
The former Vice President urged members of the APC to emulate the unity of all the presidential contestants after the party’s Lagos primaries and support the President to form his government and get to work.
Abubakar exonerated himself from the purported hijack of the party and the National Assembly towards 2019 as a figment of the imagination of those promoting such insinuation.

He asked Nigerians to ignore all such insinuation.
