Nigerians Won’t Replace Us With Bra-buying Government – APC

Published

on

The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday said Nigerians will not replace it in 2023 with a government whose members would take the nation’s resources on a bra-buying spree.

National secretary of the caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee (CECPC) of the governing party, Sen John James Akpanudoedehe, who stated the party’s position was making a direct reference to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) whose new national chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, said recently that APC will cease to exist by April 2022.

Akpanudoedehe who stated this at the APC national secretariat while receiving state chairmen of the party who were on a solidarity visit to Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker noted that Ayu’s pronouncements shall “come to nothing.”

He said, “I learnt that the new PDP chairman made a prophecy that we will scatter before April. I replied by saying that the Bible says ‘take counsel together; it shall come to nothing.’ Speak the word; it will not stand. Rather, we will be stronger and stronger.  Let me send a message to PDP. If we are talking about replacing APC, it can never be you because Nigerians are too intelligent.

“Nigerians will still choose APC. Talk is cheap; even when you sponsor crises throughout Nigeria, we won all our by-elections. We inherited insurgency and we have dealt with it. As we speak, not one inch of Nigeria’s territory is being taken over by any group. That is why they have turned themselves to criminals. When PDP was in government, they took over everywhere but today, it is different.

“Maybe because the President is not the talking type; I am challenging anyone to show me any social intervention programme better than this government. People are collecting alerts for COVID-19 palliatives. Youths, women, and civil servants are collecting it.

“If you have a minister who served under that government and the Minister bought a Brassier worth 1 million, we cannot replace APC with a Brassier government. We just got information that another account has been discovered.”

 

Earlier, leader of the APC state chairmen, Prophet Jones Ode Erue, vowed that the chairmen of the state chapters of the party will resist any attempt to derail the current party leadership from actualising its objectives.

“So, we stand by the constitutionality of our party. We stand with the leadership of his Excellency, Mai Mala Buni, and we will continue to give hand of fellowship. We will continue to give the backing needed; we will continue to fight in the trenches with you; we will continue to call it our party,” he said.

Elders of the rulling party,All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara North senatorial district have declared their support for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and Senator Sadiq Umar’s re-election for a second term.

The FidelinfoNews gathered that the APC Elders, in an address prepared by Ambassador Nuruddeen Mohammed, addressed a press conference in Ilorin today Tuesday, saying that the only task left for party delegates at the upcoming party’s primary election on May 26, 2022 is to nominate the governor because no aspirant has expressed intention to contest against him.

“It has been widely acknowledged by our party members and people in the five local government areas of Kwara North senatorial district that the incumbent Senator Sadiq Suleiman Umar has performed and served the people of Kwara North senatorial district with humility, most diligently in the past three years of coming to office,” they added.

“We, therefore, feel that he deserves another opportunity to serve our people and do much more for them,” said the party elders, who based their support for the governor on his stellar performance over the last three years. It is said that “one good turn deserves another.”

Mohammed added “Our position, which is contrary to the decision of the main opposition party, the PDP, which announced recently that its own candidate should emerge from Kwara North Senatorial District, is borne out of the fact that the incumbent and high performing governor, Mallam

AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, is constitutionally entitled to second term of office.

“We are also giving him our support for his re-nomination for the office of governor again because of the fact that in the history of Kwara state, no governor or administrator except him, has done so much to develop the entire state and in particular, Kwara North Senatorial District, in just three years of administration of Kwara state.

“We, therefore, feel that he deserves another opportunity to serve our people and do much more for them. One good turn, it is said, deserves another.”
