APC will make a mark in 2015

20 June 2013, 11:15

Abuja - A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Joshua Ephraim, has expressed optimism that  the new political association will make a mark in Kaduna come 2015 when registered.

He made the remark in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Thursday.

"Unless the PDP is able to re-invent itself and truly serve the interest of the larger segment of the society, it is my contention that  the party will  lose the next gubernatorial election,” he said.

The APC chieftain  expressed the determination of the new association  to bring succour through laudable programmes and execution of  projects that will have  salutary effects on  the  lives  of the  people.

"The chances of APC in Kaduna state is 100 per cent because the people are yearning for a remarkable change.’’

He noted that the wind of change was in top gear to provide an alternative through  a responsive and responsible  leadership.

He said the people needed fairness, justice and equity, adding the new association will present the right governorship candidate in 2015 that would fulfill their yearnings and expectations.

He assured the people of the state that the new association would revolutionise the education sector being the bed rock of any society, in addition to improving agriculture as the  main stay of state’s  economy.

Ephraim said the priority of the new association is also women and children and will do everything in its power to give them the much needed empowerment as the most vulnerable groups in the society.

"Although government has no business in business, the APC will provide the environment that will be conducive to business growth and development by the private sector,” he added.

According to him, the industrialisation of the state will receive a boost under the APC government while the issue of corruption will be tackled with vigour.

He said the issue of merit and the principle of federal character would guide the appointment of political office holders as well as distribution of the state’s wealth.
