Dogara Reveals How Apc Can Win More States In 2019


SAN FRANCISCO, April 28 (THEWILL) – The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday advised the All Progressives Congress, APC, to ensure it delivers on its promise of Change, noting that doing so will make it easy for the party to capture states presently being controlled by other parties.

According to a statement issued by his spokesman, Turaki Hassan, in Abuja, the Speaker stated this when he received a delegation from Delta State APC, under the umbrella of Delta APC Contact Committee, in his office.

Dogara reasoned that nothing could sell the party faster and wider than providing tools of empowerment for Nigerians to thrive in their businesses and daily lives, through provision of infrastructure and other needs as promised by the party.

While given suggestions on how Delta and other opposition states could be captured by the APC in 2019, the Speaker said “a better way of getting there will be that in all the APC states, the APC controlled Federal Government is able to deliver on its promise.

“If we are able to do that, you may not even have to suffer, you may not even have to pool resources, you may not even have to campaign, it will just come automatically that these are crops of people who will deliver on the mandate and because it's been done elsewhere, if we give them the opportunity in Delta State as well, they can replicate that.”

The Speaker, who commended the group for planning way ahead the elections, noted that “without vision the people perish and maybe if we've been in opposition for too long and not able to wrest power from the mainstream, it may be that the parts were not well articulated.

“That is why I love the fact that you are beginning to put your house in order well ahead of time. Because one thing with vision is that it gives you a destination and once you have a destination, you know the roads or the pathways that will take you to that destination.”

He assured that the hardship and challenges currently being faced by Nigerians would soon be a thing of the past as the budget of change will come on stream next week in view of meetings held with the President on Tuesday and subsequent ones scheduled to put final touches to the appropriation bill.
