APC Will Rule Nigeria Forever, Buhari’s Minister Says (See Why)
THE All Progressive Congress (APC) will rule Nigeria forever, a serving minister of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has said.
Minister of Women Affairs, aisha alhassan who made the declaration on Monday said the APC will not only emerge winner of the presidency in 2019 but will also win more states to itself.
She stated this while addressing journalists shortly after the inauguration of a factional chairman of the APC in Taraba State, on Monday in Abuja.
The same prediction was made for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when one of its chieftain boasted that the party will rule the country for 60 years. However the prediction was cut short at 16 years with the emergence of the APC at the 2015 polls.
Notifying her intention to contest the state governorship election come 2019, alhassan said the party´s coming national convention slated for June 23 would be peaceful.
“Crisis is normal in a big party like APC, once we can do our national convention, then we face the opposition PDP and I assure you that APC will win more states like Taraba in 2019.
“I will make sure that in my zone, I follow up and by God’s grace Gombe and Taraba (states) will be taken over in 2019. And don’t even talk about Nigeria because it’s already APC and it will continue to be APC forever.”
alhassan added she won the election in 2015 ”but wasn’t destined to be governor”.
“I won the 2015 election, everyone knows that, even the Peoples Democratic Party. I will re-contest the election again in 2019 if God keeps me alive and well.
“It is God that gives power to whoever he desires, I won the election 2015, but God did not give me power. I will keep trusting in him and the grassroots people of Taraba and God willing, I will win the election,” she said.
Speaking on the APC factions in Taraba State, she said: “I have a right to choose who becomes the chairman of the party in the state. There is no faction in Taraba. We are very much together, there was no love lost in the state, we were never divided. It was all about political interests.”
