The All Progressives Congress(APC) says its focus is on delivering its popular mandate and multi facet Next Level Agenda to Nigerians ahead of 2023 general elections.
The party said this in a statement by Sen. John Akpanudoedehe,
National Secretary of its Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), on Tuesday in Abuja.
Akpanudoedehe said that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration was implementing one of the world’s largest and wide ranging social investment programmes which was benefitting the vulnerable and had taken many Nigerians out of poverty.
“Commendably, we are well on course to delivering other aspects of the Next Level agenda,” he said.
According to Akpanudoedehe, under President Buhari, every state of the federation has an ongoing federal road, infrastructure project.
He added that the APC, therefore, had no intention to trade words with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), its governors and leaders on the propriety of infrastructure projects undertaken by the current administration and which state deserved a federal project.
Akpanudoedehe said from previously abandoned to new projects under Buhari-led APC administration, every state of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) had an ongoing and major Federal road.
This, he said, was in addition to other critical infrastructure project, adding that this was a fact that could be verified.
“Following the gale of defections that has hit the PDP since the advent of the Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led APC CECPC, we hear the PDP is doing all it can and begging its members and leaders to remain in the party.
“We wish the PDP good luck in its futile attempts: the PDP is apparently deluding itself that its cravings to return to power at the centre amounts to the wishes of Nigerians.
“This is incredibly delusional, it is important to remind the PDP that in a democracy and progressive politics, power is not taken but given through a popular mandate by the people,” he said.
Akpanudoedehe added that the current state of the PDP did not show that it was anywhere close to earning such mandate from the electorate come 2023.
