The sustained influx of outstanding Nigerian politicians into the All Progressives Congress, APC, is an eloquent testimony that there is something in APC that is attracting people. This observation was made by Engr. Victor Beke, a chieftain of the APC in Rivers State, when he visited the office of Notable Outcome in Port Harcourt.
The politician who maintained that the APC has done very well in less than eight years of it’s existence, said ”the educational sector is faring well: in agriculture, the country now produces enough rice that makes importation unnecessary.
“There is also good news in the area of infrastructural development, transportation and production of local fabrics”, the engineer stated, adding that the party has what it takes to advance the cause of Nigeria’s development
Responding to a question, Engr. Victor Believe maintained that the current defections of Dimeji Bankole, former deputy speaker, House of Representatives, Gbenga Daniel, former Ogun state governor and Atiku Abubakar’s Presidential campaign Director – General are pointers of better days ahead for the APC stressing that while Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has joined the APC and Ben Ayade of Cross River on his way to joining the winning train, that there has been no response of any APC governor deserting the party except the unique case of Obaseki of Edo state who had to leave because he was denied a return ticket.
In a related development, the Elibrada – born politician said that APC has all it takes to win the presidency in 2021 because the party has majority of governo’rs, and is being strengthened to retain power at the centre in 2021. He also observed that there are indications that the presidential ticket will come to the South, especially against the background that President Buhari, who is from the north, would be completing his eight years in office by 2023.
Engr. Victor Beke appealed to all political parties in Nigeria to concede the presidential ticket in 2023 to the South in the interest of one Nigeria, equity and fairness. He further called on the south to look for a candidate who has capacity to move the country forward and make Nigerians from the south proud, while summing that rotation of power between the north and south would be the best to happen in Nigeria.
