APC Welcomes Obasanjo’s Coalition For Nigeria, Says Movement Not A Threat To Party
The ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC) has welcomed the existence of the newly launched Coalition for Nigeria Movement.
The ruling party also said the movement is never a threat to its own existence, noting that the only threat it can begin to worry about lies with the Nigerian people.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, stated this on Wednesday while reacting to the official flag off of the group in Abuja.
“The prospect of a coalition does not threaten the APC at all. The only threat we can begin to worry about lies with the Nigerian people.
“If it is about competition for power, how many political parties do we have? That is enough reason for us to worry about competition. If another coalition is set up for the purpose of winning power good luck to them, that is the essence of constitutional democracy, a multi-party system thrives in that kind of situation.
“So, we don’t feel any threat, we don’t feel concerned they are welcome to the field,” he was quoted by PUNCH Newspaper to have said.
