Agents of destruction behind attack on Abuja-Kaduna train – APC

THE ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says agents of destruction against President Muhammadu Buhari’s infrastructural strides are behind the attack on a Kaduna-Abuja train.

The Secretary of the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, John James Akpanudedehe, made this known today while responding to the alleged terrorist attack on the Kaduna bound train which forced the Nigeria Railway Corporation to suspend all operation on the line till further notice.

Akpanudedehe said the attackers do not want Nigerians to enjoy the various infrastructural investment made by the administration.

“Nigerians by now have realized that the APC led-government of President Muhammadu Buhari means well for Nigerians and is doing everything possible to deliver infrastructure to Nigerians amidst difficult economic times, globally. We must stay united so we can defeat the agents of destruction who have vowed to set Nigeria backwards.

“Just this morning, an Abuja-Kaduna passenger train was attacked by criminals, depriving Nigerians the services it provides. This is so despicable, but together we shall overcome them.”

Akpanudoedehe who spoke today during the inauguration of the APC State Congresses Appeal Committees at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja said that he has no doubt that Nigerians will give the APC fresh mandate in 2023.

He said the party’s leadership headed by Mai Mala Buni is recalibrating APC into a functional winning machine come 2023, adding that with its huge membership base the party will win “the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the Governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti and to the 2023 general elections”.

For this to happen, he said ” there is greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians”, saying dissensions within the party must be seen as “family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in times past”.

While urging members to be fair to all , he appealed to party faithful not to take matter to the public space. .

“As a party, we shall ensure that channels of communication are kept open, as in the instant case and as dictated by the constitution of our party. This Appeals Committee is part of the internal mechanisms, so that those who may feel dissatisfied with the States Congresses can approach the Committee and ventilate their grievances through this avenue”.
