APC Core Supporters Network Withdraws Planned Protest Against Buni-Led APC Caretaker Committee
The APC Core Supporters Network have called off their initial plan to protest against the party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee.
The group had last week issued a threat to shut down the national secretariat of the party over its interim leadership.
But national president of the group, Maxwell Gowon, on Sunday, in a signed statement, said its members were misled, misinformed and misguided by some disgruntled elements.
Gowon said they knew better now and had already apologised to Governor Mai Mala Buni-led committee for almost being used by enemies of the ruling APC to truncate the progress recorded.
Speaking after its consultative meeting held in Abuja on sunyday on the state of the party, the group alleged that they were initially carried away by some elders whom they thought meant well for the APC.
He said the group led by him, however, made a U-turn after discovering that these so-called leaders were attempting to brainwash them into turning against the progressives.
Gowon, therefore, said the group cannot allow itself to be used against the Committee that had done so well to rescue the party from where these elders had taken the party.
He added that the group was now convinced that holding the party’s congress anytime in February without resolving the issue which the committee was first appointed to resolve would be playing into the hands of the opposition that had planted moles to destroy the party.
While urging the Governor Buni-led committee to sustain its transformation, the group unequivocally called on all APC support groups, supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari and all progressives in the country to hereby know that the earlier threats of protest against the Committee was hereby withdrawn and suspended indefinitely.
