A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) from Kano state, Alhaji Adamu Danzago, has expressed confidence that the ruling party will retain power beyond 2023 at the centre and in various states of the federation.
Punch reports that Alhaji Danzago, who served in the 2019 presidential campaign committee, made the declaration in Kano on Thursday, March 4.
According to him, despite challenges within the APC, the party remains the platform of choice among Nigerians.
He also stated that the internal crisis, which had engulfed the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was also serving as a boost for the chances of the APC.
Recall that Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state had earlier declared that Nigerians will vote for the APC again in the 2023 general elections.
Uzodinma made the comment during an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, February 3, saying the performance of President Muhammadu Buhari in office will propel the ruling party to victory.
Borno state governor, Professor Babagana Zulum on Thursday, March 4 hinted that Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi will soon decamp from the PDP to the APC.
Professor Zulum made the comment at the Bauchi state government house during an event.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that access should be given to members of the PDP, willing to join the APC in the ongoing membership registration exercise of the ruling party.
Omo-Agege made the comment on Tuesday, February 2 in his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North local government area of Delta state, adding that the essence of the exercise is to rejuvenate the party in preparation for future elections hence the need to get more members into the APC.
He further counselled APC chieftains in Delta state and beyond not to discriminate against anyone either within or outside the party during the exercise.
