The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appointed Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-olu to head the reconciliation efforts in Anambra.
The appointment comes ahead of the gubernatorial election in the state, with a charge on the two governors to unify erstwhile aspirants and their supporters to join the campaign organization of the party.
“Following the recently-concluded All Progressives Congress (APC) Primaries to elect the Party’s flagbearer for the November 6th Anambra State Governorship Elections, the Governor Mai Mala Buni-chaired Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has appointed the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu and the Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to unify and strengthen the party in the state ahead of the elections,” a statement on Monday by the CECPC National Secretary, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe read.
“The two party leaders are charged with the responsibility of bringing together all the erstwhile aspirants and their supporters to join the campaign organisation of the party and achieve victory for the APC in the state.
“The Chairman of CECPC mandated the two governors to do everything reasonable and necessary to ensure that all feuding parties, erstwhile aspirants and their supporters close ranks and work for the APC to resoundly defeat contestants fielded by other political parties,” it added.
The ruling party expressed hope for a unified front and shared commitment to support the party before, during and after the election.
