Why we lost Oyo, Imo, Zamfara, others to PDP – APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it lost some states in the 2019 general election to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) because of disputations among some party leaders.

The APC national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, in an interview with journalists, said if Oyo, Imo, Bauchi, Adamawa, and Zamfara were taken one by one, it will be discovered that there were peculiar issues in the respective states that accounted for how the APC lost them rather than the voters preferring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“I would put the painful outcomes broadly under two reasons. One is indiscipline on the part of some members of our party in most of the states.

“The second reason is that the party leadership did not do much between 2015 and 2018 to move the party from being an amalgam of different political parties to become a truly blended progressive political party” Issa-Onilu stated.

He said the next three years are very important as the APC under the leadership of the national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole will continue to strengthen compliance with the rules, build support structures for democracy, ensures discipline across board, and deliver good governance for the benefits of all Nigerians.

“We expect members who have different agenda to join their kind in PDP. We will welcome with open arms, those who share our progressive ideals, so that by 2022, we will have a party whose members are truly progressives”, the APC spokesman said.
