ElectionsMr Adams Oshiomole,the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman has assured that the party will win the coming general elections in a free, fair, transparent and credible atmosphere.
According to a statement issued by Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu,the APC National Publicity Secretary, Oshiomhole gave the assurance at a meeting convened by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) on Sunday in Abuja.
Issa-Onilu said the special meeting was necessary to review and deliberate on the party’s preparation and general issues ahead of the forthcoming general elections scheduled to commence on Feb. 16.
He added that the meeting which was presided over by Oshiomhole, was attended by the party’s state chairmen, secretaries and governorship candidates from across the federation.
Oshiomhole in the statement, stressed that the APC would win the coming elections in a free and fair manner as against past Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) administrations.
He said the PDP administration had always “stole” the people’s mandate by manipulating the electoral process and state institutions to win elections.
Oshiomhole identified the state executives represented at the meeting by their respective chairmen and secretaries as an important grassroots base that would work and ensure the party’s victory in the presidential, governorship, National and State Houses of Assembly elections.
He hailed the huge turnout of party supporters in the presidential campaign rallies held so far, and charged the party’s state executives to work cordially with its governors and stakeholders in their respective states to ensure the election of all the candidates.
Oshiomhole while cautioning against complacency, said the party’s victory in the coming elections was assured judging by the continued support of the electorate and the unprecedented achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
He,however, urged APC members and leaders not to be distracted by the daily falsehood and propaganda by the opposition PDP ahead of the elections,saying that PDP’s strategy was a fallout of its infamous Dubai meeting.(NAN)
