Aim To Return Back To Power , A Mere Wish- APC

“If wishes were horses beggar would ride” was what All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday, referred the confidence of the new national chairman of People Democratic Party (PDP) Ali Modu Sherif who, promised to restore PDP back in power by 2019.
The APC National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, in a statement described Sheriff’s comment as a laughable and mere wishful comment.
Buni said APC interest at the moment is to deliver the dividends of democracy to Nigerians who voted it into power rather than trading words with its opposition.
The statement read in part: “In monitored media reports, Ali Modu Sheriff boasted in Umuahia, the Abia State capital that the ailing PDP which lost power in 2015 will regain control of the federal government in 2019. Ali Modu Sheriff was also quoted as saying the PDP would soon come out with its ‘master plan’ to regain power.
“The APC is reluctant to join issues with Ali Modu Sheriff’s idle 2019 postulations and would rather join issues that will bring about all-inclusive development in the country.
“The 2015 elections has been won and lost. The priority of the present APC administration is to deliver on election promises made by the party to Nigerians who long-desired change of political leadership at the federal level and in many states.”
The statement further stated that APC hoped the “touted master plan” of the PDP in its bid to return to power included the return of funds its members misappropriated under the party’s 16-year rule.
It added that President Muhammadu Buhari has been working assiduously to correct the PDP’s years of damage and bring about people-centric governance, wondering how the PDP expects Nigerians to abandon APC’s smooth sailing ship for a sinking and rudderless PDP ship, come 2019.
