Abdullahi Ganduje, the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairman, says his target is to increase the number of governors and legislators on the party’s platform.
He said this when he spoke with journalists on Thursday in Abuja.
“Our blueprint is to increase the numbers of legislators and governors that we have in the country, and by implication the numbers of state Houses of Assembly members,” said Mr Ganduje.
Mr Ganduje stressed that the party would be active throughout the year.
“In our tradition, usually, political parties as institutions are only active during the electioneering, but in developed democracies, political parties as institutions are active because they are not only limited to an election, but recruitment of members,” Mr Ganduje said.
He said a political party was a two-way traffic because it was expected to educate the people on government progress and make recommendations on its manifestos.
Mr Ganduje said this was how the government was assessed, adding that the ongoing renovation and innovations at the party’s national secretariat were for its progress and the nation.
“Before now, there was no church within the party secretariat; nobody went to church on the premises, but now, we have a new church building going on.
“We have shops to avoid street hawking around the complex, and we have concrete drainage,” he said.
He added that the party’s media centre, in terms of outlook and equipment, would be upgraded under his chairmanship to make it modern.
“We are not in an analogue period, but I think what I have seen here is analogue,” the APC national chairman said.
