The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will repeat the feat of beating the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in an electoral contest.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja on yesterday, he also dismissed insinuations that the ruling party has erupted into crisis over the primary elections, especially with the opposition mounted by some aggrieved governors.
Oshiomhole said the major grouse of the Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha and his counterpart from Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun was his inability to help them establish political dynasties in their states.
With respect to the recent Supreme Court judgment, which annulled all levels of party executive in Rivers state, Oshiomhole said as a law abiding entity, the party had decided that there would a fresh congress in the state.
Oshiomhole also apologised to the Supreme Court over the invasion of a High Court in the River State capita, Port Harcourt by supporters of a faction of the APC during a court hearing., Oshiomhole said the party would be setting up reconciliation panels to be headed by eminent party members to help heal the wounds and assuage the feelings of aggrieved members ahead of the 2019 general elections. On the strategies for the 2019 general elections, Oshiomhole said the party was still intact and would be marshalling out plans for campaigns.
“Now that our opponent is Atiku Abubakar, we will defeat again the way we have defeated him before and I have confidence that President Muhammadu Buhari will return because he has the quality which none of them has – integrity”.
