The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, on Sunday urged the Adams  Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee to stamp out injustice from the All Progressives Congress.

Both leaders, who gave the advice at the APC national convention on Sunday, are some of the leaders of the disgruntled members of the nPDP bloc.Saraki, in his remark, said the APC must stamp out injustice and bring all members together to work as a team.
He noted that there were challenges on the ground which the leadership must “take head on.”
Saraki said, “As we look into the future, we must ask ourselves; how have we been successful so far? How were we able to win an election against all sorts of opposition? We did it because we were courageous. We did it because we made sacrifices. We worked as a team and we put in our all. And that is what it takes to get this achievement. Do we have challenges? Of  course, we have. But the responsibility of leadership is to tackle challenges and take them head on. It is irresponsible of leadership not to take on challenges and find solutions.
“Mr Chairman, you have spoken so well because you admitted that there are challenges. But you said, which I must praise, that immediately you set to work, you will address those challenges. As full as this place is now, there are those who should be here who are not here. We need them.
“I say this with all sense of responsibility and purpose that the intention of all this is to make Nigeria better. Mr Chairman, I have a lot of confidence in you. I know you have the capacity to do it; the capacity to do it is for us to make sure that we stamp out injustice. We bring respect to all of us and work as a team.”
In his remarks, Dogara charged the new National Working Committee to ensure equity and justice in the APC.
The Speaker noted that there were no challenges that did not have solutions. He stressed that if the party searched deeper, it would get solutions to the challenges “confronting this movement.”

Dogara added, “One issue that I want to dwell on is the issue of justice, which we know that Mr. President stands on.  He stands for the common man and his strength has been the common man. It is therefore very important that the leadership of the newly-elected executive creates equal opportunities for the weak and the strong. Challenges will come but we will always rise above them.
