He explained that APC was formed by a group of people for a reason and President Buhari happened to be the presidential candidate for the party and eventually won the election in 2015.
He said that the same reason will make APC stay together, united and stronger.
‘I know President Buhari today is directing what has to be done, so, Obasanjo was the same in PDP and when he left did it crash? So, if Buhari leaves office, it wouldn’t crash.
‘And Buhari will be with us, He is the leader of the party and he will continue to be with us.
‘And for those people that believed President Buhari will just go to Daura and sleep, they don’t know him, he is patriotic enough, he came back to power after he tried for three times because he wants things to change for the better.
‘So, he will not fold his hands and let what he built or started to build get scattered or destroyed, the patriotism in him will not allow that, so, we still have a leader,’ Badaru noted.
Meanwhile, has insisted that its proposed national convention will be conducted on February 26, as scheduled.
This comes as the party’s leadership approves the timetable and schedule of activities for exercise, less than six weeks to the convention.
