President Muhammadu Buhari has urged leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to avoid squabbling that could cause distractions ahead of the party’s coming elections.
The president who made the call when he received the APC National Assembly leadership at the State House, Abuja on Thursday, also urged them to channel their energies toward improving the fortunes of the party.
The president said he met with the governors and the party national chairmanship aspirants on Wednesday, to reiterate the need to go into the convention with a united front.
The APC lawmakers were led to the meeting by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila of the House of Representatives.
The Senate President, who spoke to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, said the National Assembly had also resolved to work towards the emergence of consensus candidates to ensure smooth convention.
