APC Governors Release Campaign Strategy On How To Defeat Atiku

Governors under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have said that their 2019 campaign strategy will be strictly based on “issues”.

This was revealed by the chairman of Progressives Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, while speaking with State House correspondents after he led some of his colleagues to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

“Our election this time will not engage in castigations, we will be talking on issues. Nigerians are tired of political abuses, what we want to be talking about are issues and track records of people involved in our elections,” the governor said.

Mr Okorocha said they decided to adopt this campaign method because they realise that, “Nigerians are very wise now. Before they elect anybody, the will ask questions: what has been your track record, who were you before and who are you now and everything about you. For that reason, we are confident that 2019, APC will pull through,” he said.

He added: “We have also looked at issues concerning our primaries. In every democracy, expect some kind of disagreements and we have kindly requested that something be done to bring all warring factions together so we can have a united party to face the challenges ahead,” he said.

The governor also spoke about the emergence of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said the ruling party is not bothered because “history is there to speak”.

“Like I said we are not going to get involved in this verbal war with anybody, we will be talking about issues. If you say, look you are not good, we will tell you what we can do and what we cannot do and what others cannot do.

“So APC is not going to engage in those kinds of talk show, but we will discuss on what our party can do for the people,” he said.
