President Muhammadu Buhari has told lawmakers elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to accept the party’s supremacy in the interest of democracy, Vangaurd reports.
The president made this remarks at the ongoing meeting of National Executive Committee at Abuja which the party is hoping to resolve crisis engulfing the party following the fallout of National Assembly leadership tussle.
He charged everyone to put whatever interest they have in their “pocket” and accept the supremacy of the party in the overall interest of democracy.
He said: “What ever your personal interests, put them in your pocket. Let APC work. Let the system work. I appeal to you to accept the superiority of the party. I cannot confine myself in Sambisa forest and refuse to participate in the meeting because I respect the superiority of the party.”
