'APC will sweep all elections in 2015'

25 June 2013, 12:08

Lafia- Gov. Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa State, on Tuesday expressed optimism that the umbrella party for opposition political parties, the All Progressive Congress (APC), will win the 2015 general election.

Al-Makura made the remark when he received the Chairman, Merger Committee of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Garba Gadi in Lafia.

"With the synergy and brotherliness shown by the merger committee, the merger would succeed and APC would win all the forthcoming elections,'' the governor said.

He commended the committee for its efforts and pledged his continued support to ensure the success of the merger.

"Not only the CPC, but  Nigerians as a whole have seen the efforts of the merger committee'', he added.

Earlier, Gadi had commended the governor for his immense contributions toward the merger of the opposition political parties.

"Without your support, the merger committee would not have achieved the set objectives, and this would continue to be appreciated by all of us," he said.

According to him, the purpose of the visit is to appreciate the support and guidance given by Al-Makura which has enabled them to succeed.

Gadi urged the APC governors and the party leadership to quickly settle the issue of those that would lead the APC, for it to move forward.
