The national chairperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, has revealed that the APC is the only vehicle to convey Nigerians to prosperity.
Ganduje spoke in Lokoja, Kogi’s capital, on Saturday at the inauguration of the APC campaign council for the state governorship election.
He said, “It is also my belief that the innovations the campaign council will initiate during the campaign period will convince the electorate that the APC remains the only option for development, the only alternative for good governance and the only political vehicle to convey the people of Kogi state, and indeed, Nigeria, to the place of our collective aspiration of prosperity and development.”
He also revealed that the APC members in Kogi will ensure that Usman Ododo, the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the state, wins the election.
“I would like to therefore call on all our party members and stakeholders to rally round our candidate so that our party will succeed.
“By doing so, all the legacy projects would be sustained and there will be continuation in governance. As a party, we are committed to working hard individually and collectively to realise these goals and objectives.
“It is pertinent to also note that we have initiated and concluded plans to structure our party into a truly grassroots progressive party by opening full-fledged and functional offices in all 8,813 wards in Nigeria
“This is to enable our members across the country to have both a symbolic representation of our party in their neighborhood and, a place for active interaction between and among members on one hand, and members and leadership at different tiers of government on the other hand,” he added.
The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, while speaking said the forthcoming election in the state would be a landslide victory for the APC.
“We have Hon Usman Ododo who is coming to consolidate on our achievements,” he said.
“This election is a landslide victory. Nobody tries GYB with violence and goes scot-free. Go out and cast your vote. This election shall be a landslide victory for our party.”
Bello said the party would do everything to ensure it replicates the victory achieved at the presidential polls.
