    The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on Wednesday inaugurated the Party’s 63-member high-powered National Campaign Council for the September 22, 2018 Osun State Governorship Election. The Campaign Council is chaired by the Kano State Governor, H.E. Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

    Remarks by the APC National Chairman: “We are very grateful to Governor Ganduje for graciously accepting to provide leadership and chair this very important committee. Your Excellencies, many of you present here have been very much involved in helping to provide leadership in most of the campaigns that we have had in recent times after the last general elections. The most recent is that of Ekiti State where your Excellencies did very well.

    “So, we have a body of experience to go about and the whole idea is to sustain the values and the ideals of our Party, which is based on transparent elections on the basis of one man, one vote and joining forces with the Party leadership in the state, to work hard, to mobilise people of Osun State to vote wisely for the APC candidate in the next governorship election that is scheduled to take place on 22nd September 2018.

    “As a governing Party, Nigerians resolved in our favour that the APC should not only preside at the centre. They have expressed so much trust and confidence in our party, that on our Party’s platform, 24 governors were elected.

    “The importance of Osun is readily appreciated by all of us. First, it is a State we had taken over from the PDP, we defeated the sitting governor at that time.

    Remarks by the Kano State Governor: “Mr. Chairman on behalf of the Council, I will like to thank you very much for having confidence in us. There is no doubt that this is a very powerful council looking at the membership composition — Governors, Senators and experienced Party men. Also the task ahead of us is very important. Mr Chairman, what you have done is to match the quality of the council with the importance of assignment.

    “There is no doubt that winning Osun Sate is very vital to the Party. It has been our state in APC for the last 8 years and by the will of God we will maintain this state in order to have 100 per cent states of the South Western part of this country in our great party. As Progressives, we assure you we will ensure clean, free and fair election because that is the motive of the APC.

    “What we intend to do is to mobilize our people. We are even very lucky that the primaries conducted succeeded in mobilising the people, in energizing the people, in giving our members hope in Osun state so that we continue with that mobilization until the election day when certainly we will win this election.

    “Luckily enough the Governor of Osun is a man of the people, he provided the dividend of Democracy. He is the man who relates with all strata of the society in Osun. So he is a man that is loved by the people. So all that is required now is for us to sit together to ensure there is total reconciliation among those who contested the primaries. This is very important to give a sense of belonging so everyone will participate in the electioneering and in the election and also mobilize all the stakeholders to ensure we work in unity.”
