Nigeria’s main opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, will transform Nigeria if elected to power in 2015, the party’s national chairman, John Oyegun, has assured.
Mr. Oyegun spoke on Monday in Sokoto at the inauguration of the northwest executive committee and a special rally.
“The party wants to ensure the complete transformation of the nation when elected into power at all levels during the forthcoming polls,” he said. “This transformation will include the power sector, security, education, eradication of unemployment and poverty, among others.”
Mr. Oyegun commended Gov. Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State for developing the state in the past seven years.
Mr. Wamakko and his counterparts from Kano, Imo, Edo and Zamfara States, said the party was capable of bringing the desired change to Nigeria.
The governors also said, “Nigerians want change and to maximise the God-given potentials of the country. The APC governors and members across Nigeria are bonded by sheer vision and mission to effect change in the country”.
The Deputy National Chairman of the party, Lawal Shuaibu, said the rally was the beginning of the crusade to bring the change Nigerians need.
The state chairman of the party, Bala Hassan, said the APC will emerge victorious in 2015 at levels in the country.
“The rally is a meeting of progressives who want to bring the desired change in Nigeria,” Mr. Hassan said.
The highlight of the event was the inauguration of the northwest executive committee members of the party by Mr. Oyegun, the News Agency of Nigeria reported.
The National Vice Chairman, Northwest, Inuwa Abdulkadir, said that people in the zone will vote in APC at levels in 2015.
The rally was attended by the former Governors of Zamfara, Ahmed Sani and Bayelsa, Timipriye Sylva.(NAN)
