S’East, S’South crucial to APC’s victory in 2019 —Odigie-Oyegun

Posted 6 days, 8 hrs ago
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has described the South-East and the South-South geopolitical zones as crucial to the APC’s planned victory in 2019.

This, he said, was the reason the party was interested in finding out what the party did wrong during the Anambra State governorship elections held in November 2017.

Odigie-Oyegun said this on Monday during the inauguration of the Otunba Niyi Adebayo-led four-member strategic committee to “do a forensic analysis as to why the APC lost” the Anambra gubernatorial election.

Odigie-Oyegun said, “The South-East and the South-South would be crucial and critical for our victory in 2019.

“Not from the point of view of the number of votes because we are fairly confident, having gone through our initial planning, that the APC would carry the day in 2019 but for us it is critical that the South-East and the South-South geographical zones, having contributed immensely to the survival of this nation, must fully be represented in what is going to be a truly national government of the APC in 2019.

“l must personally confess that l was disappointed in terms of votes that we got at the Anambra election.

“I expected a much better result than that. It has become necessary therefore at this early stage to examine why ­— the reasons why the votes that the APC scored were much lower than we expected.”

Explaining the reason behind the setting up of the committee, Odigie-Oyegun said, “So, today, we are inaugurating a strategic committee and the mandate is for you, Chief Niyi Adebayo, and your team to do a forensic examination of what could have gone wrong; why did we not do as well as we expected; what were the factors that contributed to our low score.”

He said given the amount of work put into the campaigns for the Anambra polls, the party deserved to do better than it did.

He, however, noted that the party did better during the Anambra governorship election in 2017 than it did in 2015.

Speaking to reporters soon after the committee’s inauguration, Adebayo said the committee was not set up to apportion blame but to look for what went wrong and proffer solutions and forge a way forward.
