A National Chairmanship aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC Mohammed Saidu Etsu has appealed to the party’s leadership to provide a fair playing field for every aspirant vying to be National Chairman.
He noted that numbers should be considered when nominating or reaching consensus for the position of chairmanship.
“Politics is about people, whether directly or indirectly, nominations and the reaching of consensus for this sensitive position should be a game of numbers.
We have over 41 million registered APC members across the country, with a number of them being involved in the internal party decision-making process.
Most of which, I know that are not aware of this claim.
“In the situation of partisan politics, elections do begin from the political party’s politics.
This implies that our party, the ruling All Progressives Congress must take the responsibility of acting as a good ambassador for a fair-hearing internal party politics as well as promoter/custodian of true democracy.
This is what I intend to uphold with my ‘Reset Agenda’ when I emerge as the party chairman.
“My co-contestants and I have spent a great deal of resources campaigning and rallying around the 36 States of Nigeria for at least a year now.
I will categorically state that I am unhesitatingly ready to purchase the party chairmanship form right away, should the sales of forms be rolled out at this point” Etsu said.
According to Mr.
Etsu, the party should reach out to the aspirants if a particular candidate has truly been nominated or endorsed by the President.
