The Legacy Forum, made up of state chairmen of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), has asked Buhari to roll out measures to pacify aggrieved members of the APC to avert mass exodus ahead of the 2019 general election.
In a communique at the end of its meeting in Abuja Tuesday, the forum said the president should assist the party in resolving the crises rocking its state chapters, pointing out that if this was not done, it might affect the chances of the party in the forthcoming general election.
Since the resignation of Atiku last week, there have been concerns that he may drag many of his loyalists along as he heads back to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to fulfil his presidential ambition.
The forum’s coordinator, Mr. Ahamed Haruna Zago, who read the communique said while they appreciate the successes so far recorded by the government, he must take steps to address complaints ahead of the next election.
He said: “The Forum appreciates the achievements recorded so far with the improvement of the security situation in Nigeria, the tireless fight of the government against corruption and all vices of waste in government revenue and the steady growth in the economy, leading to exiting from the recession.
“The Forum appeals to the President to, as a matter of urgency assist the All Progressives Congress (APC) to resolve all the crises in the 36 states chapter of the party with a view to repositioning the party for the next general election in 2019.”
