The national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umaru Ganduje has boasted, saying his party is the only vehicle to convey Nigerians to prosperity.

Ganduje made the comment in Lokoja, Kogi’s capital, on Saturday at the inauguration of the APC campaign council for the state governorship election.

“It is also my belief that the innovations the campaign council will initiate during the campaign period will convince the electorate that the APC remains the only option for development, the only alternative for good governance and the only political vehicle to convey the people of Kogi state, and indeed, Nigeria, to the place of our collective aspiration of prosperity and development,” he said.

The former Kano state governor said APC members in Kogi will ensure that Usman Ododo, the party’s gubernatorial candidate, wins the election.

He said; “I would like to, therefore, call on all our party members and stakeholders to rally round our candidate so that our party will succeed.


“By doing so, all the legacy projects would be sustained, and there would be continuation in governance. As a party, we are committed to working hard individually and collectively to realise these goals and objectives.

“It is pertinent to also note that we have initiated and concluded plans to structure our party into a truly grassroots progressive party by opening full-fledged and functional offices in all 8,813 wards in Nigeria.

“This is to enable our members across the country to have both a symbolic representation of our party in their neighbourhood and a place for active interaction between and among members on one hand, and members and leadership at different tiers of government on the other hand.”

In a related development, former President Muhammadu Buhari, has said his administration saved Nigeria from corrupt undertones planted to expose the nation’s economy to collapse.

Buhari made this known in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, replying the position of a former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke over cases involving Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID), Paris Club, and the Ajaokuta steel company.

Shehu said Buhari’s success in the fight against corruption was unprecedented

According to him, Buhari’s administration inherited the contract and incidental judgement in the P&ID, adding that, the cases identified by Adoke originated from an administration that the former Attorney General was part of.

“The logical conclusion any reasonable person can draw on P&ID, Paris Club, and Ajaokuta is that President Buhari came on a rescue mission and effectively saved Nigeria from corrupt undertones that were planted to expose its economy to imminent collapse. The success of the Buhari administration in the fight against corruption is unprecedented,” he said.

Adoke has recently posited that the administration of Buhari was the “most incompetent” Nigeria ever had, saying it was run by “a set of political morons.”
The former justice minister stated this in an interview with Adesua Giwa-Osagie while commenting on the corruption allegations pressed against him and former Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, by the immediate past government.

He said despite Saraki’s opposition to his appointment as Minister of Justice under former President Goodluck Jonathan, he and the ex-Kwara State governor had since become friends, describing Saraki as one of the “emerging leaders” of the country.

Adoke said, “Bukola Saraki was the Chairman of the Governors’ Forum at that time. He didn’t want me as Minister of Justice, possibly, because he was uncomfortable with me. He didn’t know me. And he felt that I might not serve his political interests.
“And there’s nothing wrong with that. Today, it will amaze you to know that Bukola and myself are very good friends. I respect him. He is one of the emerging leaders of this country.

“He has served as Senate President of this country. He has served as governor. And he stands out well, irrespective of his political persecution. He remains one of the few politicians in this country that have demonstrated in office, capacity, competency in terms of leadership.”

However, when the host asked: “So, you believe that the corruption allegations against him is political persecution?”, Adoke responded: “I have been a victim of corruption allegations by the immediate past government.

“The most incompetent government we’ve ever seen in this country; ran by the most incompetent president that this country has ever had and will never have again. And ran by a set of political morons.”
