The All Progressives Congress (APC), National Chairman,Sen. Abdullahi Adamu has urged party members to close ranks and work as a team to ensure victory in the forthcoming general elections.

“We have to do some works and forget some of the prejudices and stand together.

”We don’t want anybody to come here after the elections and start crying and laying blames on us for our failures.

“I will not listen to that, this is the time to unite, this is the time to work for unity, if we do, God will be with us,” the APC national chairman said.

He said ahead of inaugurating the committee, comprehensive meetings were held between the party’s leaders in Abia.

Adamu said that they were involved in negotiations and its National Working Committee (NWC), especially during its primaries and after it.

Adamu expressed optimism that with the inauguration of the committee, there would be peace in APC Abia.

“We are not going to hold reconciliation meetings again. We will now leave it to the leaders of the party in Abia to play their politics in the state.

“Abuja is not about Abia, go to Abia and play politics there, do the necessary, lobby and reconciliation there because all politics is local.

“Abuja is not Abia locality, Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), we converged here from various states. Let Abia go and work together,” he said.

Adamu however, added that the party would not be satisfied with just 25 per cent of votes cast at the general elections.

“All the national elections, House of Representatives, Senate, Governorship, likely the presidential election, we will not be satisfied with just the 25 per cent of votes cast.

“No half way about it, if we are to win, we must try to win every state,” Adamu stressed.

The Chairman of the committee, Mr Chris Adighije, in his remarks, said the committee would reconcile all aggrieved APC members in Abia.

This, he said, was critical to enable the party build strength to face challenges from other political parties

The APC National Chairman urged the members to quickly come together to work in unity.

“We are on our way back to Abia to play the local politics, reconcile all our members and ensure that we go straight for the low hanging fruits which would have lost if we don’t get together.

“And I know that by the grace of God and with the team, we are going to do the needful and ensure victory for our party,” he added.

Adighije said the party’s chances of winning APC in the coming elections were bright.

“If you look at my face very well you will know that I am an old war horse and I wouldn’t be standing here if I am not sure.

“So, we have great chance, we only have to do the needful to work together,” he said.
He added that the committee would do the needful to address every of the party’s challenges in Abia.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Sen. Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, Deputy Chief Whip House of Representatives will serve as secretary of the committee.

Published

on

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), claimed that Obi’s supporters have been spreading false information to the public in an effort to harm the APC candidate.

Recall that a report emerged online a few days ago, that the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Asiwaju, asking him to step down and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The President had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, calling it fake news, stating that it is a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.

Reacting, the TCO media Director asked Obi to disavow his supporters who are employing fake news against the former Lagos State Governor.

“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.
