He said terrorists were in charge of some local government areas and the South-South, when his before the start of his administration. The President however recounted that the affected areas now enjoy relative peace and rest of mind.

“I will like us to reflect on what the situation was before we came in. How many Local Government Areas were under the control of terrorists in the North-East? In the South-South, we all know what the situation was; now we have relative peace. With the resources at our disposal, we have done very well.

“People are very forgetful. Our main problem now is in the North West and North Central. People are killing one another in these places, what for? We are going to be very tough.’’

The President also sounded warning against imposition in the ruling party, saying such has cost APC some seats.

He said due process should be followed by party members in all the party processes and the party should put mechanisms in place to combat corruption.

“I enjoin you all to follow due process in all the party processes and more importantly to develop more mechanisms against corruption.”

“I call on all party members to abide by all extant laws, rules, and regulations and to leaders of our party to avoid the imposition of candidates that cannot win popular elections.

“This dictatorial behavior cost us many strategic seats in the past. In the recent past, this led to some of our strong members, unfortunately, opting to go elsewhere because of unfairly oppressive behavior of party leaders at the state level.

“I must caution strongly against any tendency towards developing cliques, in-fighting within the party.

“We want to win well not succumb to factions on account of personal acerbities and desire to retain control at all costs. That surely is not the road to win,’’ he said.

The president also informed new members of the National Working Committee (NWC), which had been conferred powers of NEC for a stated period, to work towards the unity of the party.

On forthcoming general elections in 2023, Buhari urged party members to learn from the pitfalls that led to the loss of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015.
