Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.
John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”
“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.
“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
“In a bid to provide development to our people, this party has afforded many of our party faithful the platform to attain various positions, either elected or appointed, it will still do so for many others going forward.
“As a party, we shall ensure that channels of communication are kept open, as in the instant case and as dictated by the constitution of our party. This appeals committee is part of the internal mechanisms so that those who may feel dissatisfied with the states’ congresses can approach the committee and ventilate their grievances through this avenue.
“It is elementary law that he who alleges must prove. So, instead of taking issues to the media space, let them put forward their case before this appeals committee.”
