"So, you see, I have no doubt that the APC will remain the peoples’ choice come 2023 and beyond.
"All the party needs to do is to ensure that we get it at right in producing our next set of leaders that will pilot the affairs of our party.
"The party has successfully held its ward congress across the federation, the state and national congress will hold soon where new leadership will be elected for the party."
The APC chieftain also said the new leadership must operate on a platform of conviction politics envisioned by the founding members of the APC.
He said the APC remains the most acceptable party for any serious politician to actualise their dreams.
Why Nigerians don't want PDP again
Senator Musa recalled that the APC came into power in 2015 and Nigerians re-elected the party again in 2019.
He said Nigerians didn't consider the opposition party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because they don't want to go back to the era where the nation's resources were "used to enrich the political class and their cronies".
"We are gradually departing from the vicious politics of patronage and clearly, the people have called for a paradigm shift both from the political parties and to the system of governance."
APC, FG have failed Nigerians - Okocha
In another report, an APC chieftain in Rivers, Chief Tony Okocha, has made some bleak predictions for the ruling party.
In Okocha's opinion, winning the next presidential election will be a very difficult task for the APC because Nigerians have lost confidence in the party.
The chieftain, who spoke with Leadership on Tuesday, August 17, noted that the party which came into power with the promise and mantra of changing the woeful status quo allegedly brought about by the 16-year rule of the PDP did not make any meaningful progress in terms of economy, infrastructure, healthcare delivery, and job creation.
