I remain true to the progressive ideals of APC —Tinubu

National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Tinubu, has said he will not abandon the ruling party, which he laboured to build.

 

 He said  he remained true to the progressive ideals of the party.Tinubu, who was reacting to a report published on Sunday, that himself and some politicians in the country, including former Vice-President Abubakar Atiku and factional chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ahmed Markarfi, among others, were planning to float a mega party, said irrespective of mistakes that had been made, he remained committed to the “ideals that fueled the creation of the party.”

 

He said he had devoted his life to the party, pointing out that the national purpose of the APC was bigger than the desire of any individual.

Tinubu said this on his personal Twitter account.

“I have devoted my political life to achieving what has been achieved. My heart is too much of the people and my mind too fixed on establishing a positive historic legacy… rather than engage in destructive pettiness,” he wrote.

“This government, APC, is for the betterment of the people and the national purpose is bigger and more important than any individual’s desires.

“This is a party I laboured with others to build. We would not abandon it for another. Millions of Nigerians who voted are watching and praying.

“In our journey to national betterment, plans and policies will be made, then amended. Mistakes will occur and then corrected…

“Achievements will be had and replicated. Through it all, I, Asiwaju will remain true to the progressive ideals that fueled the creation of the APC.”
