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
