The Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) has said that the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria after over 100 days of medical vacation in London has doused tension nationwide.
In a statement, yesterday in Abuja, IPAC chairman Mohammad Nalado said Buhari’s return had put to rest the political crisis which wrecked the country while he was abroad.
Nalado, who doubles as chairman of Accord Party (AP), expressed optimism that the economic situation in the country would improve with the President’s return.
He said that IPAC, being the umbrella of all political parties, was poised to advance the course of Nigeria’s democracy through constructive dialogue and strategic engagements, which he said is what Nigeria needs now.
“IPAC had before now taken steps to ensure peaceful elections in all the bye elections held by INEC, we did a roadshow in the Ondo governorship election, Rivers parliamentary elections, among others and they yielded great results.
“We are also ready to do more with the support of the stakeholders to ensure that Nigeria’s democracy is not truncated by political violence. IPAC exists to resolve optical misunderstanding through dialogue and inter party consultations.
“IPAC being the umbrella of all political parties is poised to advancing the course of Nigeria’s democracy through constructive dialogue and strategic engagements”, he added.
Meanwhile, he thanked Almighty God for granting healing to the President who had been away on medical vacation for one hundred and four days, saying it implied that God hears the prayers of Nigerians.
