The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has revealed how his party will take over the control of power in the south-east and south-south geo-political zones in 2019.
Oyegun spoke yesterday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja while inaugurating a four-member strategic committee led by Otunba Niyi Adebayo to do a forensic analysis of the reasons why the APC lost the just concluded Anambra State governorship election.
According to him, the south-east and the south-south would be crucial and critical for the APC victory in 2019.
“It is critical that the south-east and south-south – the geographical zones that have contributed immensely to the survival of this nation – must fully be represented in what is going on to be a truly national government of the APC in 2019,” the APC national chairman also said.
“I want to be partisan here, we want a situation where we will win handsomely in the south east. I mentioned the south-south when I started. The circumstances are slightly different. But we are going to have the same type of strategic team for the south south.
“The issues are different. The environment is different. But it is necessary also that we bring the south-south into the national power framework that we expect to emerge in 2019,” he said.
