Governor of Kaduna, Nasir El-Rufai on Thursday said the All Progressives Congress, APC, is not for everyone.

El-Rufai stated this in his remarks during the formal inauguration ceremony of newly elected Executive Committee members of the party, held at APC Secretariat, Kaduna.

He noted that some members joined the party to worship their egos.

He, however reiterated that APC was founded to bring change and would not be derailed from its mission by such members.

He said “not everybody, who joined our party shared this noble objective. Some were just going with the wind, taking their old, objectionable habits, into a party built on new ethos.

“Some wayfarers, who see every political party only as a platform for elective or appointive office, or the perpetual worship of their egos, found their way into the party and even got elected.

“Then they abused trust by tradaucing the party that elected them. While we were all working to strengthen the party, some of these people violated party spirit by seeking to factionalise our party and creating the impression in the media of an irreconcilably divided party.

“Through the steadfast action of our members, the Kaduna APC easily defeated this plot of the selfish, disaffected politicians whose sense of personal entitlement is subversive of the public good.

"These individuals have now been told clearly by our members that the APC does not abide indiscipline, opportunism or the irresponsible placement of personal interest above the collective.

“Our members can be proud that we have stood united in the Kaduna APC, in unity, we must continue to work hard to fulfil the hopes that our people have invested in our party.

“We cannot rest on our oars. The new executive has to further energise the party, reinforce its strength and presence at the grassroots. Big challenges lie ahead. We will soon begin primaries to select our candidates for the 2019 elections.”
