The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie Oyegun, has said the party is not interested in foisting on the country a one-party state.
Oyegun’s statement came on the heels of an assertion made by the governor of Sokoto state, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal to the effect that the governing party is ready to do everything humanly possible within the confines of the law to bring APC into the government house of Bayelsa State.
Speaking yesterday at the formal inauguration of the APC Campaign Council for the December 5 Bayelsa State governorship election, Oyegun said the campaign by the party to get every Nigerian to join the train for change in the affairs of country must not be misconstrued to mean a push for a one-party structure.
“We are not working towards creating a one party nation. We are only saying today that the challenges facing this nation are so enormous that we need every man, woman and child on board so that the trajectory on which we are traveling should change dramatically. For that, we need all geopolitical zone as well as all the good people of this country to please come on board because the task at hand is enormous,” he said
Oyegun said APC realises the fact that for it to bring about reasonable change, it requires the understanding and cooperation of most Nigerians if not everyone.
