Ganduje Heads APC Campaign Committee On Osun Guber Poll

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reaffirmed its commitment to transparent elections in the country on the basis of one-man, one-vote.

National Chairman of the party, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, gave the assurance in Abuja while inaugurating a 63-member campaign committee for forthcoming governorship election in Osun state.

Oshiomhole said that the committee, headed by Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, would ensure that the party emerged victorious at the election.

He said that the confidence Nigerians had in the APC was evident in the number of states it presently controlled and the bye elections it had won.

“They have expressed so much trust and confidence in our party, that on our platform, 24 governors were elected.

“We are happy that more progressives are coming. So, the importance of Osun is readily appreciated by all of us,” he said.

Members of the committee included 14 governors, eight ministers and federal lawmakers.

The governors are those of Kogi, Kano, Oyo, Imo, Lagos, Ogun, Jigawa, Bauchi, Plateau, Zamfara, Adamawa, Edo and Osun.

The Ministers of Defence, Interior, Health, Agriculture and Minister of State for Petroleum Resources are also members of the committee.

In a remark, Ganduje appreciated the APC leadership for the opportunity given to the committee members to serve and the confidence it reposed on them and acknowledged that the committee’s task was important.

“Our chairman, what you have done is to match the quality of the committee with the importance of the assignment. There is no doubt that winning Osun is very vital to the party,” he said.
