By Charly Agwam – Bauchi
An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain and governorship aspirant, Alameen Muhammed has charged leaders of his party and the convention committee to be fair to all parties in the convention will hold tomorrow (Saturday).
The party stalwart, in a statement made available to bestof9ja on Friday, also called on contestants to be ready to accept defeat in good fate.
“I call on all contestants of various positions of our great party to be very orderly and law abiding. I am calling on the ultimate victors to be magnanimous in victory and to run an inclusive government that will carry everybody along. Let the loser be good losers who will accept defeat in earnest and in good fate. Let’s know that in all healthy and fair contests there must be winners and losers.
“Most importantly, let me also call on the handlers of the Convention; the organizers and all the leaders of our great party, the APC to provide an enabling environment, a healthy ground for all the contestants. This country is divided and shattered like never before. It truly needs selfless leaders. Our country is at the brink of the precipice.
“I pray that the convention will produce people of unquestionable characters, people of high nobility and integrity. Those that will ultimately be umpires that will produce true leaders who have the nation at heart. Who truly appreciate the predicament of the poor man.
“Those who will address the quagmire of the nation. Those leaders who will confront, head on, the stark reality of unprecedented insecurity bedevelling the Nation and uproot the hard reality of incongruous poverty, economic hardship and social contempt that has pervaded the nation.
“This country needs to be salvaged and now. We MUST all know that Nigerians are no longer those of the 2014/2019 who were gullible and unconscious. We have a more enlightened masses,” he said.
