The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disclosed its ambition to remain in power and the centre of Nigeria's politics beyond the sixth, seventh and even eighth term in office (that is 32 years).
Governor Mai Mala Buni, the chairman of APC's caretaker extra-ordinary convention planning committee, made this revelation on Tuesday, March 23.
Buni said the ruling party will achieve this through the Governor Badru Abubakar 61-man strategy and contact committee of the APC inaugurated on Tuesday in Abuja.
“Our vision is to provide a wheel that will drive the party to go beyond 6th, 7th and even 8th term of office to effectively implement the party manifesto, improve the lives of Nigerians and, to remain Nigeria’s leading political party.
“This committee is therefore very key to our process of transition towards successful congresses and national convention and, to establish a very solid, reputable and reliable future for the party."
Meanwhile, the former chairman, Senate committee on appropriation, Iyiola Omisore, two former speakers of House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole and Yakubu Dogara made the list of 61-man contact/strategy committee announced by the APC on Monday, March 22.
Legit.ng gathered that their inclusion in the list was not unconnected with their defection to the APC, after dumping SDP, ADP and PDP.
A statement issued by John James Akpanudoehede, the national secretary of the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and seen by Legit.ng, said that the committee would be inaugurated on Tuesday, March 23, by Buni.
