‘CPC Not An Islamic Party’


MBuhari_370922522Acting Chairman of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Taraba State, Alhaji Hassan Ardo, yesterday faulted the notion in some quarters that CPC is an Islamic party, stressing the party is an all inclusive one which is opened to all interested persons.
Ardo, who made his position known in Jalingo during a meeting of wards, local government and state executive members of the party to discuss the party’s restructuring and merger plans with other political parties, said those advancing the notion that the party is an Islamic one are just using that as a political gimmick to cause disaffection and disunity in order to score some cheap political points as well as keep interested people away from the party.
Ardo cited the examples of Pastor Tunde Bakare and Prince Tony Momoh who hold key political positions at the national level of the party and argued that if the party was an Islamic one, it wouldn’t have been the case.
He described his appointment as the acting chairman of the state by the national body as a call to duty and promised to run an open door policy where everyone would be given an opportunity to make inputs.
