 APC aspirants to sign undertaking to implement manifesto—Oyegun

Odigie-Oyegun

All aspirants seeking the tickets of  the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of next year’s elections are to sign an undertaking to faithfully implement the party’s manifesto,if elected.

The undertaking will form part of the screening of the aspirants, National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun said yesterday  in Abuja, while receiving  the presidential nomination form of  Governor Rabiu  Kwankwaso of Kano State at the APC  national secretariat.

The manifesto,Odigie-Oyegun said,is people-oriented and must be implemented faithfully by those fielded in the elections.

He said: “We have a manifesto which we are going to commit them to faithfully implement. As a matter of fact, for the first time, there will be an undertaking to be signed by all aspirants at your screening to faithfully implement the manifesto of the party. That manifesto is people-oriented.”.

He described the five presidential aspirants of the APC as capable hands any of whom,he said,  “will beat the PDP candidate.”

 

Of Kwankwaso,he said: “We are getting our form from somebody with tremendous experience. The APC is very proud of you.

“We have been monitoring your movement and your utterances and I want to commend you for being a party builder, a consensus builder and for carrying the touch of the party throughout the length and breadth of this nation.

” People look at you, people hear you, people are endeared to you and begin to develop love for the APC where ever you have appeared.

“I am very glad at the decorum that all our aspirants have shown in pursuit of their efforts to become the official candidate of the APC. I thank you because until now, apart from a few minor slips, you have all had a beautiful  campaign.”

He  said that Nigeria is currently going through  challenging  and difficult times, but pledged that the APC “ is going to provide this nation with a steady, experienced and capable leader that can lead this nation out of the woods and take these challenges seriously.”

Speaking after submitting his  nomination form, Governor Kwankwaso said that the leadership of the nation must be prepared to deliver  free, fair and transparent elections which will be acceptable to all Nigerians and the international community.

He was  confident  that if he got the APC ticket more than half of   PDP members would   vote for him.

He said the party is strong enough across the country .

“In Kano, for example, we have constituencies where you have as many as 16 aspirants and that is a clear indication of the popularity of the party because there are parties that are begging people to come and collect forms,” he said.

“We have seen it in some states where the PDP is begging some people to come and collect the forms for free. Our forms are not free, but people are struggling to get them because APC forms are like gold.

“We are aware that so many people have seen the light and are joining the progressives today. So, you can be rest assured that we are going to win many of the states in addition to the centre. We are going to work even harder to make sure that I clinch the ticket of the party which I believe will be in the interest of the APC and this country.

“With my candidature, you can be rest assured that more than half of PDP members will vote for me during the general election because many of them  are my friends and they wanted to cross over to the APC, but for very obvious reasons, especially because of blackmail and intimidation, they are finding it extremely difficult to leave that party. We are happy that they are still there and we will meet with them during the  election.”
