Igboeli Arinze, FCT- Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, today said that the All Progressives Congress, APC would remain strong even after the tenure of the President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2023.
The governor gave this verdict when he appeared on Channels
Television’s Politics Today programme.
Uzodinma’s response followed a question by the moderator in which he sought to know if the party owing to the fact that Buhari would no longer be on the ballot since he is constitutionally barred from seeking another term after having served two terms of four years each.
He said, “I know for sure that the
membership of our President Muhammadu Buhari, the leader of the party, is a very huge asset to APC and there has never been any place, anytime that the President said he would withdraw his support from APC
after his service as the President of thee
country. When he leaves as the President, he will still remain a committed member and
leader of the APC and whatever asset at his disposition will still be deployed to the party.
“Rather than expecting that the party will be weakened, the party will be stronger because here will be a President who is a huge asset and again a new President that will emerge because with the activities and achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari, there is no doubt that Nigerians will
vote APC in again. And when we have a new President with the former President who is a committed member of the party, this will be a huge asset to the party.
