President Bola Tinubu has called on the leadership of the APC to embrace accountability in all forms, especially with respect to financial discipline and the active promotion of women and youth participation in the day-to-day operations of the party.
The President, who gave the charge at the opening of the party’s National Caucus meeting in Abuja, said such would strengthen the party and firmly establish its stability as a governing party,
The National Leader of the APC noted that the future of the APC belonged to Nigeria’s young people and women, considering their proven dedication and demonstrable prowess in election matters.
“As a party, we must handle our finances very well. I hope the financial audit recommended by the National Working Committee (NWC) will help us strengthen our finances better. I thank our governors who contribute generously to the wallet of the party. These times are tough. We are challenged. Please continue to support the party.
“Our party also needs to be more gender friendly, and we need more participation from the youths because they own our tomorrow. Let’s get more youths and women involved. They are very dedicated election masters,” President Tinubu implored.
While intimating the party leaders in attendance, which included the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, former National Chairmen, Chief Bisi Akande, Chief John Oyegun, as well as serving governors, former governors and National Assembly members, the President detailed decisions he had taken so far to reform the country’s economy, reiterating that Nigeria cannot continue to sustain the treasury-depleting fuel subsidy and losses incurred by the past foreign exchange management regime.
“We can’t continue to play poker with our economy. That is why I took the decisions I have taken so far.”
The Acting APC National Chairman, Senator Abubakar Kyari, had commended President Tinubu for the steps he had taken so far to reposition the economy for greater productivity and future prosperity.
Senator Abu Kyari presented two memoranda to the National Caucus, which were the Appointment of External Auditors and Filling of Vacant Party Offices.
The two major party positions which the Caucus considered are that of the National Chairmanship and National Secretary seats that will be filled by the National Executive Council at its next scheduled meeting for tomorrow (Thursday).
