The United States chapter of the All Progressives Party (APC-USA), yesterday, appealed to the leadership to adopt consensus arrangement in electing its presidential candidate.

In a statement by the Chairman and Publicity Secretary, Prof. Adesegun Labinjo and Prof. Francis Onukwuli, the members congratulated the newly elected National Chairman and National Secretary, Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Senator Iyiola Omisore, on their victories at the March 26 national convention.

They expressed confidence in the ability and capacity of the elected leaders to lead the party.

The chapter said Adamu had all it takes to unite and reposition APC for victories in the coming elections.

The Nigerians in Diaspora lauded the consensus deal that produced most of the national officers at the convention.

They acknowledged the peaceful conduct of the convention and commended the aspirants for sacrificing their individual aspirations for the collective interest of the party.

APC-USA called on the leadership and the entire membership to take advantage of the successful convention and replicate same during the primaries, especially the presidential one.

It advised the party to work hard to produce a consensus presidential candidate to avoid the usual acrimony that follows every disputed primary.

The body, however, condemned the raging terrorist attacks and killings across the federation. It called on government at all levels to do more to protect lives and property.

The chapter pledged to assist the military and other security agencies with technological equipment to detect, fight, capture and kill the insurgents.

THIS is even as the national chair, Adamu, promised to deliver the party in 2023, warning APC chieftains against saying the government had failed.

In an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Hausa Service, monitored in Kaduna at the weekend, Adamu took exception to his being labelled wizard by critics.

The former governor of Nasarawa State insisted that he was not a cannibal, but gets amused each time he is addressed so, adding: “I never feel angry.”

He appealed to aggrieved members to sheathe their sword and work with the new leadership to win next year’s polls for the party.
