The New Peoples Democratic Party, nPDP, a group in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated why it decided to attend Saturday’s convention.
The bloc said it wanted to demonstrate to Nigerians and particularly their supporters that they were loyal to the party.
In a statement in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, nPDP spokesman, Abubakar Kawu Baraje, said, “We still believe that our loyalty should be demonstrated, that is why we attended the convention”.
“The convention is on going now, despite the fact that there are so many litigations in the court against the party arising from parallel primaries in over 18 States of the Federation.
“The fact that we were able to attend the APC convention and the convention is going on well, is not an interpretation that the suffering of the masses had been alleviated and is not an answer that the security in the country which has been seriously jeopardized is being addressed.
“We want to appreciate Nigerians and our supporters and we want to let them know that our struggle is still on course and until the party addresses some the major areas of concerns that will make live easy for Nigerians we remain undoubted.”
