2023: We will shock PDP soon – Says APC

All Progressives Congress All Progressives Congress

The All Progressives Congress has said it will shock the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party soon by bringing a consensus and agreeable presidential candidate that will fly its flag in 2023.

National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John Akpanudoehede, stated this in a statement dated Tuesday, July 20 in Abuja.

Naija News understands that the statement was in reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party’s recent allegation that President Muhammadu Buhari had a self-succession plan.

Akpanudoehede in the statement said APC would not watch to see individual ambitions obstruct the Buhari government ahead of the 2023 presidential poll.

He said unlike the opposition PDP, the APC was a disciplined party, noting that the former was just been haunted by its past. Akpanudoedehe recalled the third term agenda of the PDP while it was in power, pointing that the APC would surprise it with the outcome of its planned congresses scheduled to commence on July 31.

He said: “After our congresses and the National Convention, we will shock them (PDP) by bringing a consensus and an agreeable candidate that will fly the flag of the party come 2023.

“APC has no third term agenda like PDP. What we are doing now is to stabilise the party and not allow individual ambitions to derail President Buhari’s administration,” he added.
