The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is not scared over the much-touted mega-party being purportedly put together by some politicians ahead of the 2019 elections.
The party’s National Chairman John Oyegun told reporters in Benin, the Edo state capital on Tuesday, that he was sure the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar would not join the new party.
Oyegun is confident that with the meeting he recently had with some of the party’s leaders, including the leadership of the National Assembly and the former Vice President, there was nothing to be scared of.
“We don’t feel threatened at all. No mega party would survive the APC. I don’t know where the name mega party suddenly came from in the lexicon of politics.
”When two people gather to have a meeting they now call themselves a mega meeting. We don’t feel threatened, we will in fact, encourage a mega party, because with the gradual collapse of PDP, we want a party that can make us sit tight and be on our toes,” he added.
