The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu has said the ruling party has no reason or excuses not to deliver the President and other positions in next year’s election.
Naija News reports that Adamu, a former governor of Nasarawa State, disclosed this when he accompanied the party’s Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to commission the party’s Presidential/State campaign office in Kano State.
According to Adamu, APC must produce the next president as they have 22 governors out of 26 and they are also the ruling party.
He said the ruling party can only lose if the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has failed.
The party Chairman said, “It is not over until it is over. We don’t contemplate. We have no option than victory and for victory to come our way we must work hard to earn it.
“No excuses, your party is the party in government and the opposition wins the election only when the party in government fails.
“We have 22 states out of 36. We have no reasons, whatsoever not to deliver our President, Governor of Kano, all National and state assemblies.”
