MAI MALA BUNI, EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR YOBE STATE AND NATIONAL CHAIRMAN CARETAKER/EXTRAORDINARY NATIONAL CONVENTION COMMITTEE OF THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS ON THE INAUGURATION OF EDO STATE GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION NATIONAL CAMPAIGN COUNCILS AND EDO/ONDO STATES RECONCILIATION COMMITTEES.
Your Excellencies, Executive Governors here present, Distinguished and Hon. Members of the National assembly, Chairmen and members of the committees, Stakeholders here present, Party supporters, Staff of the secretariat, Representatives of the Civil societies, Invited guests, Gentlemen of the press, Ladies and gentlemen.
I feel greatly honoured to be with you today for yet another important milestone in the life of our party as we inaugurate the reconciliation committee for Edo and Ondo States as well as the Edo Governorship Campaign Council.
The assignment before the reconciliation and campaign Committees is to build a peaceful and united APC and to ensure successful renewal of the mandate by the good people of Edo State who voted the Party into office in 2016.
The rich cream of ladies and gentlemen carefully appointed into the reconciliation and campaign councils, gives the party great hope and confidence that they will succeed for the party to emerge united and victorious.
May I use this opportunity to urge you to take advantage of strong team work, reach out to all stakeholders and pursue your assignment with all sense of purpose and commitment for the Party’s success.
I also appeal to every stakeholder and members of the party across the country to support the peace initiative of the Party for a stronger, united and prosperous APC.
I am glad to state that the Caretaker committee which I am opportune to lead had initiated wide range of consultations and reconciliatory measures to pave way for a true and sincere reconciliation. It has also drawn a road map and plan of action to forge strong partnership that would stand the taste of time among the stakeholders. We are committed to re-building confidence and trust, recovering the glory and political fortunes of the party in all the states across the country.
To actualize these and other measures, we must engage in an all inclusive consultations to accommodate and fix-up areas posing threats to the party.
I am happy to state that our visit to some founding members of the party last week has justified the new approach with very positive results after the consultations.
As chairmen and members of the reconciliation committees, you have been carefully selected based on your personal and proven integrity, wealth of experience and, sense of fairness and objectivity to achieve the set target of reconciliation and victory.
There is so much confidence in your ability to achieve these goals successfully. You should therefore remain focused and committed to succeed to justify this confidence.
I wish you success.
Thank you all
