A group, Concerned Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have described the current fuel and naira crises in the country as threats to the party’s chances of winning the February 25, presidential poll and asked President Muhammadu Buhari to wade in.
The stakeholders specifically asked the president to prevail on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to extend the February 10, deadline for use of the old naira notes by six months to enable Nigerians to have a soft landing.
Addressing a press conference at the weekend in Abuja, the convener of the group, Rev Dominic Alancha, said stakeholders in the party must close ranks for the party to retain power at the centre.
He said, “Let me make it clear from the onset that we believe this…And we will not lose it. We will win, our winning is sacrosanct God’s willing. But every victory comes with a great test.

“The last few weeks have been a great test for us as a party. We fear if this continues it will lead to a complete and total breakdown of law and order. This is not the philosophy and policy behind the formation of our party.”
