The party chairman, who was represented by the Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Abubakar Kyari, urged the aspirants to stick to party rules as they jostle for the APC tickets.

“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,” he said.

According to him, APC is a strong party that is committed to delivering the right candidates for the forthcoming elections.

Popular comedian, Bovi Ugboma has stated that there should be no competition amongst skit makers and stand up comedians.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said the two professions are similar yet different so they should collaborate instead of seeing themselves as competitors.

When asked if the rise of online skit makers have affected stand up comedians, he said, “Why should it affect them? They are two different crafts. We should learn to be more collaborative instead of competitive.

“Anytime I get that question, I get worried because what they do is online, and there is a market for it. What we do is offline and there is a market for it as well.

“They have a different genre, so we should encourage them and the fact that they can make money out of it. The fact that it is now a booming business is a plus to the entertainment industry.”

Bovi talked about what makes his crafts unique. He said, “I just do me and I make sure I always challenge and reinvent myself. I also constantly evolve so people would not get bored.

“If one does not reinvent oneself, people will find one predictable.”
