The claim was made by the APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Lawal Shuaibu, while he played host to the Taraba state chapter of the party at the Abuja national secretariat.
He maintained that no degree of rift within the party will threaten the strength of the APC.
Shuaibu said: “I want to assure Nigerians that APC is still very strong regardless of the internal wrangling. We know that we are fighting ourselves but why is it that in spite of the internal crisis people are still struggling to join APC.
“They are not just anybody on the street but eminent Nigerians and even persons elected into public offices.
“What it means is that people still have faith on the APC and still see it as the formidable party that can change what we met in 2015.
“The change mantra is still on course and lots of people out there are struggling to be part of the change and part of history.
“I want us to continue to be one. We are experiencing infighting because we don’t recognize the spirit in which the broom was made our symbol.

“This broom shows unity and if we cut the rope binding the broom together, everything will scatter. I don’t see our internal fighting as a threat to the strength of the party. We are not going to allow the broom to scatter.
“We have already set up committees to visit our state chapters to reconcile all the feuding members. We have also constituted the entire National Working Committee into a reconciliation committee to settle any misunderstandings within the national level.
“I want to urge you to continue to be a little more patient. I want to emphasise that the reward will come in many ways including safety and ability to feed our families.
“Yes, the reward may not necessarily come into individual pockets but as general benefits to the entire society. It is not going to come so fast but slowly.”
“The President promised the nation that on the day he would clock two years in the office, tremendous achievements must have been recorded. That even before he opens his mouth, Nigerians would start feeling them themselves. Let us give him that benefit of doubt.
