All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended Mr Danjuma Goje over his decision to withdraw from the 9th Senate Presidency contest in support of the party’s endorsed candidate, Mr Ahmad Lawan.
Goje announced the decision on Friday after a meeting at State House with President Muhammadu Buhari, Lawan and Kaduna State governor, Mr Nasir El-Rufai.
Speaking on the development through a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party thanked the president for calling the meeting.
“We also commend the fatherly role played by Mr Buhari in ensuring compliance with party decisions and directives.
“Goje has demonstrated himself as a reliable, committed party leader, good role model and elder statesman. We believe that Goje’s selfless actions typify APC’s progressive ideals and should be emulated by all party members to ensure unity, strength and supremacy of our great party. There is no doubt that majority of APC caucus is going into the incoming 9th National Assembly as a united house.”
APC also canvassed support for its favourite candidate for the position of Speaker of House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila.
