The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, R-APC and 38 other political parties.
The main objective of the agreement is to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
In a statement by its spokesman, Bolaji Abdulahhi, APC rubbished the memorandum as it insisted that the party was not factionalized.
It reads: “On Monday, July 9, 2018, a group of individuals under the so-called ‘Reformed All Progressives Congress’ platform purportedly joined a coalition of opposition political parties ahead of the 2019 general elections.
“We respect the right of everyone to join any association or group. However, we wish to reiterate that the so-called R-APC is not a faction of our Party. Our Party, the APC remains united under the leadership of our President, H.E. Muhammadu Buhari.
“It is also noteworthy that some political parties that have been named as signatories to the MoU have disassociated themselves from the publicized deal.
“We once again reiterate the commitment of our Party to address real grievances of our genuine members. We call on them to take advantage of this opportunity while the windows for reconciliation are still open.
“We are confident that no level of gang-up can make our government under President Buhari to waiver in its promises to Nigerians to rid our country of corruption and improve the quality of lives for our people.”
