President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed confidence of the party’s victory at the forthcoming polls, saying that there is ‘no alternative ‘ to that..
He said this at the inauguration of the APC Women team in Abuja on Monday.
The president challenged members of the All Progressives Congress Women Presidential Campaign Team to work hard in ensuring victory for the party in the 2023 general elections.
Buhari, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, tasked members of the team to take the party to greater heights by developing and implementing a collective an inclusive party strategy for smooth victory in the elections.
To him, the inauguration of the APC women’s presidential campaign committee is the most crucial component of the 2023 campaign.
He noted that women had been the most supportive groups to his administration and throughout his political journey, calling on women of the party to extend same commitment they had shown him all along to the flag bearer of the party and his team.
”To this end, I call on all members of this committee to take on this great responsibility as a testament of your selfless service to the APC.
”I strongly believe that this committee will take the APC to greater heights by developing and implementing a collective inclusive party strategy to ensure a PCS victory in the 2023 election because there is no alternative to our victory,” he said.
The president, however, warned that warned that the team must be guided by the mission of going around the whole wards in the 774 Local Government Areas of the Federation campaigning for the party.
“The mission that lies ahead for the committees is very clear, and time is not on your side. As this lunch is being hosted in Abuja, we must remember that the real work lies in far places, away from Abuja
“The task at hand lies in over 1000 wards, and 774 local governments across the country where a party faithful will have to make a case before fellow citizens on our party’s candidate by articulating the vision and the programme for the country.
”The campaign should therefore resist the temptation for it to be turned into an Abuja activity,” he added
