The National Leader of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday in Abuja announced that the party had dissolved into the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Buhari, who made the announcement at the mid-term convention of the party, said the merger process by opposition parties of like minds was on course.
He said, “We must explore every opportunity to save our country. This is a historic moment when several different political parties have resolved to come together to change Nigeria for the better.
“We must seize this moment that calls for patriotism and sacrifice; it is time to sacrifice everything such as time, resources, ambition and ego for greater tomorrow.”
Buhari appealed for support of the merger of opposition political parties, in order to move Nigeria forward.
The CPC National Chairman, Chief Tony Momoh, who also spoke at the convention, said that it was the last convention of the party.
Momoh said, “We have had alliances, coalitions and other arrangements, but not merger in this country.
“That is why the decision by the progressive elite in Nigeria to come together to merger will work as planned.” …(continue from source)
