The state Acting Chairman of the party, Alhaji Hassan Ardo, said this on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jalingo.
Ardo was speaking after the meeting of wards, local governments and state executive members of the party.
According to him, the meeting discussed the party’s restructuring and merger plans with other political parties to form the All Progressive Congress (APC).
He denied the notion that the CPC was tending toward one religion and described it as a political gimmick to cause disaffection in the party.
He added that the notion was also aimed at discouraging people interested in joining the party to reap some political gains.
Ardo said that the fact that CPC had the likes of Pastor Tunde Bakare and Tony Momoh, holding key positions at the national level, knocked off the notion.
He described his appointment as a call to duty and promised to run an all inclusive administration for every member of the party to contribute to its progress.
Ardo, therefore, urged party members to imbibe the spirit of unity and play the game of politics according to the rules.
“We are simple in our dealings but firm in our decisions,” he said.
