Dasuki: My role in unsuccessful ACN/CPC merger before 2011 elections

Dasuki: My role in unsuccessful ACN/CPC merger before 2011 elections

Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA), has revealed he played a role in the first attempt to merge the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) with the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) before the 2011 elections.

But Dasuki said his involvement in that political process ended after the 2011 elections.

He was speaking in reaction to reports that he was working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari after he was appointed NSA by former president Goodluck Jonathan.

In a statement on Sunday, Dasuki said he never campaigned for the APC nor Buhari while serving as NSA in the Jonathan administration.

“The truth is that I was involved in an attempt at forging an alliance between the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) among others prior to 2011 elections which was not successful,” he said, adding: “My involvement in that political process ended after the elections of 2011.”

He also said Jonathan was aware of his relationship with Buhari and other opposition leaders, including Bola Tinubu, when he was appointed NSA.

“At the point of accepting the appointment to serve as National Security Adviser (NSA) in 2012, I made clear to President Jonathan that I had relationships with General Muhammadu Buhari of CPC, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu of ACN and Chief Ogbonnaya Onu of ANPP among others opposition elements and that my appoint would not cause me to sever the relationship,” Dasuki said.

“I, however, assured him that I would never betray him. As a man of honour, I kept to my words.

“Therefore, as NSA between 2012 and 2015, I never campaigned for APC nor its candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, in whatever shape or form before, during or after the 2015 presidential election.

“I never worked at cross purposes with my boss, President Goodluck Jonathan as being recklessly insinuated by mischief makers on their blogs and social media.”

The APC was eventually formed after the ANPP, CPC and ACN merged into one party in February 2013.
