Governor of Yobe State and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, yesterday stated the party is working to govern the country for 32 years.
Recall that in 2008, the former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Vincent Ogbulafor, stated the platform would rule for 60 years. The party was defeated seven years after.
Inaugurating the APC Strategy/Contact Committee on Tuesday, in Abuja, Buni mentioned the assessment of the party’s constitution would take care of ambiguous positions and loopholes which have precipitated confusion and controversies through the years.
The governor stated, “The constitution of the Strategy and Contact committee, due to this fact, is to consolidate the achievements we’re making in constructing a powerful party with a stable structure that might accomplish APC to stand the test of time.”

“Our vision is to supply a wheel that can drive the party to go beyond sixth, seventh, and even eighth term of the office to effectively implement the party manifesto, improve the lives of Nigerians and, remain Nigeria’s main political party.”
Speaking after the inauguration, the Jigawa State governor and chairman of the Technique and Contact Committee, Badaru Abubakar, has stated the party’s national conference would hold in June this year.
There are speculations in some quarters that the tenure of the Buni-led committee can be prolonged, while the conference could be shifted beyond June.
However, Badaru stated the caretaker committee was dedicated to delivering on its mandate, not later than June.
Reacting, the PDP mentioned the APC will probably be voted out in 2023. The spokesperson of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, stated Nigerians had already reached a national consensus to kick APC out of the office, come 2023.
“ Nigerians are already set to deal the APC a death blow at the polls in 2023, as they have since reached a particular conclusion that there is no approach our nation can survive if the APC is allowed to remain in power beyond 2023,” he stated.
