Ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has condoled with the Chairman of the Kogi State Party Chapter, Hon. Abdullahi Bello over the death of his mother, Hajia Salamatu Bello.
According to the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, Hajia Salamatu Bello was a mother to all and positively impacted the lives of people that she came across during her exemplary time on earth.
“The resourceful children she has left behind, including the Kogi State APC Chairman is testament to the good upbringing the late Hajia Salamatu Bello bequeathed.
“We should now sustain the late Hajia Salamatu Bello legacy of service.
“While we commiserate with the immediate family, our great party prays the Almighty Allah forgives Hajia Salamatu Bello her shortcomings and grant her Al Jannah Firdaus.”
Meanwhile, the party has called on Nigerians to support the ongoing reforms of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena to mark Eid-El-Maulud celebration, the party urged Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for peace, progress and unity of the nation.
“We urge Nigerians to be influenced by the great virtues that the Holy Prophet epitomised by imbibing the true meaning of piety, sacrifice, patience and fellowship.
“Today many parts of the country is ravaged by the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests and the unfortunate arson attacks and looting which marred the agitations.
“While we seek justice for alleged Police brutality victims and embark on needed police reforms, we also urge peaceful agitations and engagements on all sides.
“To this end, we call on citizens and all stakeholders to take advantage of the Judicial panels of inquiry and restitution being established in states.
“In our public and private spaces, particularly the social media, we must collectively resist individuals and interests that try to sow seeds of discord among us by inciting violence and dividing us along religious, ethnic and other perceived lines.
“Their intentions are unpatriotic and self-serving.
“From social inclusion, deregulation, anti-corruption, electoral reforms and now police reforms, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has not shied away from systemic and institutional reforms when necessary.
“We urge Nigerians to support these progressive reforms.
“As we progressively reform, rebuild and reposition the country, the APC calls on everyone to be circumspect, humane and measured in our utterances and actions.
“We renew our call for an end to the looting and arson attacks.”
