Demand FOR REDRESSING OF GRIEVANCES OF THE FORMER NEW PDP BLOCK WITHIN THE ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC)

We the individuals from the All Progressives Congress (APC), who moved over from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) to shape the APC before the 2015 General Elections in Nigeria are burning of fortifying our gathering particularly now that new gathering Congresses have initiated and the Convention and another round of General Elections are up and coming. Clearly, this can't be accomplished without tending to crucial issues which we wish to bring up in this letter.

We along these lines wish, with due regard, to re-express our desire at that point and now that the APC we as a whole toiled to fabricate would be one joined together, comprehensive, durable and dynamic gathering without divisions, groups, cleavages and propensities. We imagined a political gathering advancing equivalent rights for all Nigerians and guaranteeing quick and even advancement the nation over. Obviously there is no refuting the way that the grandiose standards counted above can't be accomplished without guaranteeing equity for party faithfuls and residents.

2. Mercifully humor us to offer a concise indication of the historical backdrop of occasions that prompted the triumph of the APC in the 2015 General Elections and the presidential decision specifically. The development of the previous New PDP piece to frame the APC contributed gigantically to the triumph of the APC in the decisions. The previous new PDP included five sitting Governors of Sokoto, Kano, Kwara, Adamawa and Rivers States and previous Governors of Kebbi, Gombe, Osun, previous Vice President of Nigeria, previous acting National Chairman of PDP, sitting Speaker of the House of Representatives, numerous serving individuals from the National Assembly and numerous prestigious legislators and PDP Elders. It was a watershed crossroads in Nigeria's political History.

3. The majority of these pioneers not just DELIVERED their States to the APC at the races, a portion of the Governors were additionally doled out particular obligations to guarantee that different States were likewise conveyed to the APC in the 2015 races. The then Governor of Sokoto assumed responsibility of Kebbi and the then Governor of Kano State assumed liability for Kano, Kaduna and Jigawa States just to specify a couple of illustrations. There were additionally uncommon endeavors by numerous partners, for example, Senator Bukola Saraki, working together with others, to DELIVER the whole North Central to the APC.

4. These endeavors, commitments and forfeit were made notwithstanding the way that the presidential ticket was taken by the past Congress for Progressive Change, (CPC) and the Action Congress of Nigeria, (ACN) squares of the gathering. It is an issue for grave worry that His Excellency, Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, has never freely recognized our endeavors despite clear confirmation that the aggregate number of votes scored by the APC in States where pioneers and individuals from the then NEW PDP square held influence had the effect.

5. The adamant realities are as per the following: In Kano State APC scored 1,903,999 out of 2015, and in Kwara 302,146. In Sokoto State it scored 671,926, and 374,701 in Adamawa. In Kebbi State, APC had 567,883 votes and 885,988 in Jigawa. It was a similar story in Gombe (459,898), Kogi (264,851), and Benue (373,961) votes. These spoke to critical augmentations to the APC triumph section. Surely, the impact, exercises, energy and gradually expanding influence created by the previous New PDP piece was noteworthy in the triumph of APC in the whole races in the entire nation.

6. At this stage we would annal a couple of grievances which if tended to will prompt an agreeable APC where equity, value, reasonableness and peace will rule and empower APC evade hostility, revitalize the pace of national improvement and face the 2019 General Elections as one joined gathering.

7. Our grievances include:

(an) In the constitution of the Federal Executive Council, (FEC) the New PDP piece was by and large sidelined as for all intents and purposes no position was yielded to it. The main individual from FEC that had a place with previous New PDP square originates from a State that contributed for all intents and purposes no vote to the APC in the 2015 presidential decisions.

(b) There has been no noteworthy support and arrangements to official positions in different government organizations, for example, Chief Executives and Executive Directors of government offices and parastatals as individuals from our square of the gathering keep on helplessly look as these positions are shared by the recent CPC, ACN, ANPP and even APGA pieces of the gathering and the individuals who have no gathering by any stretch of the imagination.

(c) In arrangements into sheets of different government offices, not very many previous New PDP individuals were belittled. These are however not comparable with our commitments to the development and triumph of the gathering.

(d) When individuals from the previous New PDP square indicated enthusiasm for running for the workplaces of President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives, they were subjected to a horrendous and tireless political resistance as though they were not honest to goodness individuals from the APC family.

(e) During the gathering primaries preliminary to the 2015 General Elections, the majority of the guarantees made to sitting individuals from the National Assembly, who had a place with the previous new PDP as far as a level playing field were reneged upon or watched more in rupture.

(f) There has been general absence of discussion, non acknowledgment and even mistreatment of previous New PDP individuals and pioneers by the gathering and government. For instance, a portion of our pioneers are denied the security cover important to visit their bodies electorate despite the fact that they are chosen delegates of the general population in an administration they yielded such a great amount for.

(g) Harassment, terrorizing and abuse of previous New PDP pioneers by the administration, is as yet a progressing undertaking. We would prefer not to exaggerate the conspicuous by indexing names of previous new PDP stalwarts that are focuses of this political slaughter.

(h) There is insufficient impression of program and approach commitments of individuals from the previous New PDP obstruct in the running of the legislature.

8. Our conviction is that it doesn't forecast well for our gathering if a segment of it feels that it is being dealt with as pariahs and intrusive gatecrashers in the gathering they properly have a place with the honest to goodness desire to be treated with equity both in the running of the gathering and the legislature.

9. Emerging from the issues sketched out above, among others, we ask for a pressing gathering with the Leader of the gathering, and the Party Executive initiative to discover enduring answers for the issues raised to set up the gathering as a battling power to convey all the more sharply on its pronouncement and face the 2019 General Elections with much more prominent responsibility. The gathering will likewise empower us to work out modalities to guarantee a level playing field for all in the Congresses and Convention of the APC.

10. Given the obliging component of accessible time and in light of a legitimate concern for our extraordinary Party, it is emphatically exhorted that the said dire gathering be held not later than Seven (7) days from the date of the receipt of this letter.

11. Taking everything into account, we the individuals from the previous New PDP square of the APC wish to emphasize that this letter is composed devotedly with the best of expectations and the benefit of our gathering, the APC, and is issued to alarm the authority of the APC and specifically, the pioneer of our gathering, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, who just as of late demonstrated his goal to look for a moment term as President, of grievances that exist inside the gathering with a view to guaranteeing equity for all individuals from the APC family paying little heed to the pieces they originated from before the arrangement of the APC.

For and in the interest of the previous New PDP Block of APC:

Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje (CON), previous National Chairman (nPDP)
