National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said the party will work with the Executive and the Legislature to deliver on its campaign promises.
Oshiomhole made this known to State House Correspondent after a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Working Committee of the party on Wednesday.
The APC chairman added that the NWC told the President of plans to create an Institute of Progressive Studies, to champion the ideology of the party.
Oshiomhole said: “Our party will not go to sleep, we will work with the Executive and the Legislature to deliver on our campaign promises. We have the majority in the two houses of the NASS.
“We told the President of our plans to create an Institute of Progressive Studies, to champion the ideology of the APC. APC is a pro-poor party; also focused on recreating the Nigerian middle class. Unless you create a middle class you cannot have progress.”
