Weekly Trust - - News - Saawua Terzungwe

The na­tional women leader of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Hon. Stella Okotete, has said the party has been re-jigged to win the 2023 gen­eral elec­tions.

The women leader who led a del­e­ga­tion to the In­ter­nally Dis­placed Per­sons (IDPs) camp at Karon­mag­iji to do­nate food items said the APC would soon take over more states.

She ex­pressed op­ti­mism that the party would seize power in the Septem­ber 19, 2020 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Edo and Anam­bra in 2022.

Okotete who is a lone woman mem­ber of the 13-man care­taker com­mit­tee of the APC led by Gov­er­nor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, said the party was har­vest­ing mem­bers of other po­lit­i­cal par­ties and re­turn­ing old mem­bers into its fold ahead of the polls.

“Our repo­si­tion­ing ef­forts of the APC are clear for ev­ery­one to see. We are hav­ing new mem­bers and old mem­bers com­ing back, we have repo­si­tioned the party for high grounds and con­tinue gov­ern­ing the coun­try be­yond 2023.

“I can tell you that non APC states will be APC states by 2023. I can as­sure you that we are tak­ing Edo State back from the PDP and we are going to main­tain APC in Ondo State. We are tak­ing Anam­bra, Osun and Ek­iti states next year,” she said.
