Certain chieftains in the All Progressives Congress, operating under the platform of the Consolidated APC Grassroots Movement (CAGRAM), have alleged alienation by the party national secretariat and the Tinubu administration after the party victory in the just concluded general elections.
Chairman of the Forum, Emmanuel Nwosu, expressed the concern on Thursday at a press conference in Abuja.
Nwosu, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues, said the forum has resolved to seek an audience with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to ensure that members who made sacrifices for the party victory were adequately rewarded.
He also revealed that, as its midterm goal, the CAGRAM would take it upon itself to embark on grassroots mobilisation for the ruling party ahead of the next general elections.
He said, Our immediate goal is to ensure that all of us who laboured day and night to ensure the victory of our great party, APC, at the 2023 presidential polls are handsomely rewarded.
“We all made unquantifiable sacrifices during the presidential campaign, and many of our compatriots lost their lives in the cause of the campaign.
For that reason, we will vigorously and painstakingly engage all our elected and appointed party leaders, starting with our dear President, His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, to ensure that our sacrifices do not go to waste.
“Our midterm goal is to aggressively sweep the entire Grassroots across Nigeria and recruit all undecided voters and first-time voters into our organisation and make them committed APC members who will vote for our party come 2027 general election and other off-season elections
“Furthermore, we must ensure that all our leaders and members of this great movement who desire to run for office in the 2027 general election are delivered at all levels. We now have the grassroots network to achieve this, and so we will.”
