The leadership of the party also urged its members to avoid making comments that are divisive.
''After extensive deliberations, the CECPC resolved as follows:
“To commend the President Muhammadu Buhari for the counteractions taken against the spate of insecurity in some parts of the country, and pass a vote of confidence on Mr President.

Legit.ng gathered that top-placed sources in the ruling party said the quest to get a second term in office in 2023 is the major reason behind the governor’s move to the APC.
According to the report, the source said the governor has been told that there’s no guarantee of a second term if he remains in the PDP.
In a related report, some prominent members of the PDP, including governors and senators, have visited Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state in a bid to stop his reported move to return to the ruling APC.
According to Daily Trust, six PDP governors and other chieftains of the party met with Governor Matawalle in Gusau, the state capital, on Wednesday, April 7.
The governors in attendance were: Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Darius Ishaku (Taraba), Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), and Umaru Fintiri (Adamawa).
