The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has stated that the ruling party will engage the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on an issue-based campaign.
Speaking at the APC’s National Presidential Convention, the former labour leader said President Muhammadu Buhari is “too mild.”
Buhari pulled a total of 14,842,072 votes at the party’s recent presidential primaries held across the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as announced by Dr Kayode Fayemi, Ekiti State Governor-elect.
“Unlike the other party, which printed only one presidential form and came up with 2 million signatures from unverified individuals in 2015, the APC chose a more democratic process, using the direct primary method which gave all registered party members a true sense of participation,” Oshiomhole said.
The former Edo State governor said the ruling APC would scrutinise the records of whoever the opposition party, especially the PDP, brought up as its presidential candidate for the 2019 election.
“The other party is choosing its candidate in Port-Harcourt, we will look at the records of the opponent, we will look at his pedigree, we will challenge them on their track records,” he said.
