APC’ll field right candidates in 2023 elections – Adamu
Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
THE National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, said on Sunday the party would field its best candidates in the 2023 general elections.
The former Nasarawa State governor stated this during the screening of the APC governorship and National Assembly aspirants in Abuja.
Adamu, who was represented at the forum by the party’s Deputy National Chairman (North), Abubakar Kyari, urged the aspirants to comply with the party’s rules on the elections.
He stressed that APC was fortunate to still be in control of 22 states in the country.
The chairman said: “Let me say categorically that we have been very fortunate as a party that we have produced the best. Today we control 22 states in Nigeria and we are just three senators shy of the two-thirds majority needed in the Senate. Also, we have almost two-thirds of the House of Representatives membership.
“We recently had one senator who decamped into the APC from Sokoto and we are expecting another one from Oyo to officially cross the aisle to the APC.
“APC remains a strong and formidable party that is committed to producing the right candidates for the 2023 elections.”
