Leader of the Senate, Chief Victor Ndoma-Egba has foreclosed the possibility of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winning the presidential election in 2015, alleging that the party has not set up structures that are required of a political party to win elections.
The Senator representing Cross River Central Senatorial district insinuated that the new party will be defeated in all the three tiers of government even in 2019, as it still exists only on pages of newspapers, radio and television broadcasts.
“What I have seen on papers and television regarding APC does reflect on the actual position and strength of the party.
“PDP will continue to win elections in Nigeria because it is the only political party that put all the necessary structures in place, right from the federal level down to the local government”.
He said when APC has set up structures in all the three levels of government, then Nigerians will know that they are ready to fight for power.
He pointed out that APC still lacks party secretariats in most states of the federation, including senatorial offices, local government chapters and ward executives, saying the party is only carrying out a campaign of calumny against the PDP.
Senator Ndoma-Egba said Nigeria will conduct peaceful elections and transit to another administration, as those who have predicted the disintegration of the country will realise that the largest country in Africa is indivisible and indissoluble.
“Nigerians have agreed to stay together and they have seen democracy as the best option; so let us surmount every challenge and become one of the greatest countries of the world”, he said.
