The ruling party, the All Progressive Congress, is already planning on how to remain relevant after the tenure expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari. The country's Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo, has told party member what needs to be done to get the party on a winning streak, despite the main opposition party's promise to defeat the APC in the 2023 general elections.
The Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo opined that the popularity of the All Progressive Congress (APC) may be affected when President Buhari leaves office..
Osibanjo on Monday, August 16, told member of the APC national youth lobby group that while the party currently enjoys popularity under the administration of the president, the case might not be the same after the President's tenure in 2023.
He therefore, urged the youths of the party to mobilize young Nigerians across the country to become members of the party, beginning from the ward level. He also stated that party members would have to work hard to attract votes into the All Progressive Congress.
This what he said:
"Today, the APC can win elections, why not, we have a very popular President who can control significant votes, we have partners everywhere. Whereas, in the coming years, when we do not have such a political leader who is a s popular as the President, you are going to need to do the hard work. We can't assume that the vote will all come in"
He however, expressed confidence in the ability of the youths to get things done in all aspects of political party engagements.
The ruling All Progressive Party has indeed covered a lot of grounds with regards to the various elections conducted at both state and local government levels across the various states of the federation. However, what the Vice President said needs to be taken into consideration considering the fact that the 2023 general elections are close. All members, are to join hands together and ensure that they still retain power and popularity in the coming years.
But, will they still be voted in by Nigerians in the coming elections or are we expecting another party to emerge as the ruling party?.
What are your thought on these?
