Among the decisions taken by the APC caretaker committee was to regularise the emergence of the party’s candidates in the two states.
I am referring to the processes and primary elections that led to the emergence of our governorship candidates in the two states.
Secondly, President Muhammadu Buhari directed that all litigations instituted by aggrieved party members should be withdrawn. The president’s directive was in accordance with the provision of the constitution of the APC.
This singular directive did away with any litigation capable of undermining the chances of the party to win the forthcoming elections in Edo and Ondo states.
As we all know, Edo had been an APC state, until recently, when the governor decided to move to another political party.
The ground upon which the party enjoyed the goodwill from the people of Edo for this long, and indeed in Ondo, will continue to stand and we will triumph over the other political parties.
All APC stakeholders; governors and supporters, will be fully mobilised to ensure the success of our party at the polls. We are ready to do our best within the context of the law, and we are sure of victory.
Our sterling records at the federal and state levels speak volumes about us and our party. I believe we stand a better chance of winning the two states. It may also interest you to know that APC participated in the recent Bayelsa election and won, but lost the state to another party through the court.
We contested and won in Osun, although narrowly. We contested and lost in Anambra. There was no hue and cry. This is part of the legacy of Mr. President.
