The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has said that there is no reason why the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) won’t win the 2023 general elections since the present President Muhammadu Buhari led administration is “performing well”. ayokinews.com reports
Governor Uzodinma made this known while speaking to state house correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja.
He noted that the ruling APC had witnessed a significant increase in the number of its members across the country.
“What is the prevailing situation that will make APC not win? Is it that you don’t know that 22 states in the country belong to APC?” Uzodinma asked.
“Is it that you don’t know that out of the 774 local government areas in the country, that the APC is controlling the majority? Have you not seen the number of people decamping into the APC?”
“The mood of the country is that the president is doing very well given the peculiarity of the times when insecurity has taken over the globe, where COVID-19 has ravaged every place in the world from one variant to another variant, yet we are able to come out from recession.”
“So, I’m very confident. I’m a proud member of the APC and I think we’ll do our best to ensure that the confidence reposed in the party by Nigerians is not betrayed.”
