In a recent interview on Channels TV, the Governor of Kaduna State and member of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Nasir El’rufai, stated that there are elements within the Villa (the seat of the Nigerian President) who are working to ensure the loss of the APC in the upcoming presidential election. This sentiment was echoed by Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, during a campaign rally in Ogun State.
The statements made by these two high-ranking members of the APC have sparked heated debates and discussions within the political circles, as well as among the general public. While some see it as a sign of internal division within the ruling party, others believe that it is a strategic move aimed at garnering sympathy and support from the voters.
Regardless of the motives behind the statements, it is clear that the APC is facing challenges and obstacles in its bid to retain power in the upcoming election.
The party must work to address these challenges and unify its members if it hopes to achieve success in the election.
One of the biggest challenges facing the APC is the growing public perception that the party is not delivering on its promises to the people.
Despite having been in power for several years, many Nigerians are still struggling with basic necessities such as electricity, water, and healthcare. This has led to widespread disillusionment with the APC and the government as a whole.
Furthermore, there are also allegations of corruption and mismanagement within the party, which have only added to the negative perception of the APC. These allegations have also contributed to the growing sense of frustration and anger among the public, and have given the opposition parties a powerful weapon to use against the APC in the election.
The next few months leading up to the election will be crucial for the APC as it tries to navigate these obstacles and present a united front to the voters. The party must work to address the concerns of the public, and to prove that it is committed to delivering on its promises. This will require a concerted effort from all members of the party, from the highest-ranking officials to the local level leaders and activists.
The statements made by Governor El’rufai and Bola Ahmed Tinubu highlight the challenges facing the APC in the upcoming election. The party must work to address these challenges and unify its members if it hopes to achieve success in the election.
The next few days leading up to the election will be crucial for the APC, as it tries to navigate these obstacles and present a united front to the voters.
