 “I urge you to bring back the aggrieved members who had left in order to develop our party ahead of future elections.

“We believe in your capability and capacity as you have all what its takes to deliver. You are the right person for the job at the moment in order to take our great party, APC , to the next level of development.

“Mr Chairman, we are all aware of what happened during the party primaries where some people left the party either due to injustice done to them or fairness was not done to them.

“They left to contest for election in other parties. I want to appeal to you to bring back all aggrieved members of our party who left the party,” he charged.
