The APC is currently registering members of the party.
A former Ogun State Governor, Segun Osoba, on Wednesday said his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has its eye on the presidential seat.
Mr. Osoba, who joined thousands of members of his party for the ongoing registration process, said the APC is looking beyond acquiring governorship seats.
Mr. Osoba, the leader of the APC in Ogun, made this known to journalists during an interview shortly after he registered at his Ago-Oba ward in Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State.
“We are thinking beyond gubernatorial seats; the presidency, the ultimate goal is up there,” Mr. Osoba said.
On the registration exercise, he said the party was making progress within the urban centres. He, however, said there were logistic problems, in terms of delivering materials, in the rural areas.
“So, from the way things are there may be some lateness in materials getting to some rural areas, but, we are going to look into all these issues,” he said.
Asked to comment on whether the registration exercise can be completed as scheduled, Mr. Osoba explained that the national secretariat of the party would determine that after reviewing field reports.
“The essence of this exercise is that we want to be democratic and mobilise people and get our members to be involved in the elections of all officers at all levels… We want to re-enact the golden days of our great Social Democratic Party,” the former governor said.
