While appealing to the leadership of the ruling party to be in total agreement that CPC remained the only party to benefit from the leadership slot of the now APC, the group noted that politics is about give and take.

“We passionately and solemnly appeal to APC to be in agreement with the earlier position expressed by our dear Governor, Abdullahi Sule that APC should be kind and fair to the CPC Bloc and pick it’s National Chairman from the erstwhile CPC because all political parties that started the merger talks culminating into the APC, CAN and ANPP had all tested twice the Chairmanship of the party”.
