Speaking with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja after picking his Nomination and Expression of interest to contest at the forthcoming APC national convention, Sidiq revealed that he has consulted wideky and gotten the backing of all the stakeholders before picking the forms.
According to him, “My emergence will be a bad market to the opposition parties who are selling lies against my party. Definitely, I will send them into oblivion.
“One of the reasons why I am contesting for this office is because I want to bring certain reforms to the communication and information management of the party. I realize that information and communication flow is not only one way , it is concerned about the public most of whom are not party members.
“I also know that internal communication within the party is equally important because that is the only way they can be carried along. If members of the party don’t even know what is happening in their party, there is no way they can go out and sell the party and convince more people to come and join.
“If I become the National Publicity Secretary of the party, I intend to transform the communication apparatus and employ different communication techniques.”
