The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu has urged members of the party to ensure they do all that is necessary before elections to win at the polls.
He made the submission while stressing the need to reconcile all aggrieved stakeholders and ensure the APC goes into the 2023 general elections with a common front.
Adamu pointed out the need on Wednesday in Abuja while speaking with journalists shortly after inaugurating an eight-member Abia Reconciliation Committee.
He said now is the time to work and put the house in order so as to be able to work as a team for victory in the upcoming 2023 general elections.
In his words, “We’ve to do some work and forget some of the prejudices and stand together.
“We don’t want anybody to come here after the elections and start crying and laying blame on us for our failures.
“I will not listen to that, this is the time to unite, this is the time to work for unity, if we do, God will be with us.”
Politics Should Be Local
After inaugurating the reconciliatory committee, Adamu pointed out that it is left to the party leaders in Abia State to ensure things work out.
Adamu said Abuja is not Abia.
He said: “We aren’t going to hold reconciliation meetings again. We will now leave it to the leaders of the party in Abia to play their politics in the state.
“Abuja isn’t about Abia, go to Abia and play politics there, do the necessary lobbying and reconciliation there because all politics is local.
“Abuja isn’t Abia locality. Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory. We converged here from various states. Let Abia go and work together.”
APC Must Win Big
The APC National Chairman stressed that the party won’t be satisfied with just 25 percent of votes but must record resounding victory in every state.
“All the national elections, House of Representatives, Senate, Governorship, likely the presidential election, we’ll not be satisfied with just the 25 percent of votes cast.
“No halfway through it, if we’re to win, we must try to win every state,” Adamu stressed.
