The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, expressed his goal of expanding the party’s representation by increasing the number of governors and legislators.

He made this statement during a press conference in Abuja on Thursday.

Ganduje emphasized that the party’s engagement would extend beyond election periods and remain active throughout the year.

“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.

“That is why we said that the APC will be active throughout the year.

“In our tradition, usually, political parties as institutions are only active during electioneering.

“But in developed democracies, political parties as institutions are active because they are not only limited to election but also recruitment of members,” Ganduje said.

Ganduje emphasized that a political party has a dual role. Firstly, it should inform the public about the government’s achievements, and secondly, it should provide suggestions for its future plans. This is crucial for evaluating the government’s performance.

Ganduje also mentioned that the ongoing renovations and new developments at the party’s national secretariat are aimed at advancing both the party and the country.

“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.
