Nigerians are very wise now - Oyegun warns APC ahead of 2019


Chief John Odigie Oyegun, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has alerted his party members of a wiser Nigerian voting population and need to brace up for stiff contest in 2019.

Oyegun, who cautioned against a complacent ‘ruling party’ posture said the leadership is ever committed and dedicated “to make sure that this party is out in political fighting mood for the 2019 elections.”

He gave the word of caution while inaugurating the Convention Committee of the party, which has been fixed for Abuja.

He told the APC 2018 National Convention Committee headed by Jigawa State Governor Abubakar Badaru that the party must not cuddle itself with false sense of being the party in power, adding that the Convention Committee should ensure that the outcome of the exercise reunites APC members,

His word: “I am passing the buck over to you today. At the end of this exercise, I want to see a reunited APC under whatever leadership your exercise brings up.

“We have a tough election ahead of us and we must prime ourselves for that election. We must not cuddle ourselves with any false sense of being the party in power.

“Our population today is much more aware of their rights than they have ever been before. So, as you proceed, please ensure that all these views and opinions are brought together into a one United APC.

“The task that you have undertaken to perform is a heavy and tough one. The APC is known, in spite of induced controversies, for the cleanest primaries and congresses. Our last presidential primary was by all account one of the best ever held and I dare say, anywhere.

“It was a Convention that was watched world wide and you are supposed to repeat the feat. I have no doubt that this one, given the controversies that has preceded it, will also be a most watched Convention. So, you have the task of producing a Convention that is free, fair and provides a level playing field for anybody who wants to aspire to any position.”

Speaking on how prepared is APC ahead of the 2019 general elections, Oyegun assured that APC is poised for an encore.

“The sings are clear that this is a living party, the signs are clear that this is a vibrant party. The signs are clear that this is a party whose leadership are committed and dedicated to make sure that this party is out in political fighting mood for them 2019 elections.”

Responding, the Convention Chairman and Governor of Jigawa state, assured that “the Committee and l will give all the contestants a level playing ground.”

Badaru, who said President Muhammadu Buhari has no business in running the government except for the care of our people, added that APC’s mission was to rescue the country.

“God is with us and God will continue to support with us because of our clear vision, our good heart and our love for the people of Nigeria. We all know that our leader has no business in running this government except for the care of our people.

“Most of us you see in APC are in the party today to serve our people. Our mission in APC is to rescue the country from near collapse we saw around 2014 and 2015.”
