Adamu Abdullahi Reveals Type Of Candidates APC Will Field For 2023 Elections



Again, APC Loses Three Senators To PDP, NNPP

The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has said the ruling party will only field its best candidates for the 2023 general elections.

Naija News reports that Adamu Abdullahi made the statement at the inauguration and screening of the party’s governorship, senatorial and House of Representatives aspirants in Abuja.

The APC national chairman who was represented by the Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Abubakar Kyari, said the ruling party is lucky to still be in control of 22 states and two third of lawmakers in the country.

He said: “We have been very fortunate as a party that we have produced the best. Today we have 22 states and at the last count before myself (Kyari) and the national chairman and one of our colleagues resigned from the Senate we had 70 senators out of 109, which is just three shy of the two-third majority needed in the Senate. Also we have almost two-third of the House of Representatives membership.

“And even after we had left we had one senator who decamped into the APC from Sokoto and we’re expecting another one from Oyo to officially cross the aisle to the APC. All of us here in the National Working Committee, on behalf of the national chairman, would like to welcome you here.”
