The North should be allowed to remain in power till 2023 - APC

The Abia state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that northern Nigeria should be allowed to remain in power till 2023.

According to reports, the APC's position was stated by its publicity secretary in the state, Comrade Benedict Godson, in a chat with journalists, on Wednesday, November 15.

Godson stated that the South-East was firmly behind President Muhammadu Buhari; and that even if the president decided not to stand for re-election in 2019, the party believed that the north must be allowed to complete its tenure.

He stated: "APC in the state is in support of President Buhari's administration and appreciates his love for the South-East and what he is doing; and nobody from Abia including Kalu wants to contest for the presidency in 2019.

"Even if Buhari would not want to re-contest, it is our belief that the North should be allowed to complete her tenure.

"They've seen the growth of the party in the state in the past one year and they believe they can slow down the movement by bringing down our leaders, but they have failed; as nothing will stop APC from taking over power in the state come 2019."

Godson further spoke about the posters of former Abia state governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, which had been seen all over the state.

He stated that the posters were being put by members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to cause disaffection between the former governor and the president; but warned mischief makers that their plan had failed.

In his words: "Kalu has said it in unequivocal term that he has ambition in 2019, but definitely not the presidency; and that is why the APC in the state is seeing the pasting of the former governor's posters in different parts of the state as the handiwork of some PDP members in Abia.

"Those pasting Kalu's posters in parts of the state to cause disaffection between President Buhari and the former governor should know their game plan was dead on arrival.

"It may have worked for them when PDP was in power at the federal level by which time the Pull-Kalu-Down syndrome at all costs through bare-faced lies and gossips to the presidency held sway."
