PDP: The Supreme Court judgment does not affect the APC, we're happy about it - Yari

Zamfara Governor, Abdulaziz Yari said the All Progressives Congress, APC, has reached  plans to hold its congress on July 29 to elect delegates for its convention.

He said the party`s loss at the recent bye-election in Osun is a wake-up call on how to deal with future electoral issues.

Yari, who is also the Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), said that the APC needed to develop a shared meaning on the agitation for restructuring.

“People have said that the APC promised restructuring, so we need to sit down as a party to develop a shared understanding of what we mean by restructuring in our manifesto, “he said.

He added that the APC leadership will meet with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to discuss the party`s convention and national issues generally.

The governor said that APC governors welcomed the Supreme Court ruling on the leadership crisis of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He explained that APC has no plan to make the country a one-party state or to work against the PDP as was being insinuated in some quarters.

“We enjoyed the opposition when we were there and it was from the opposition that we became a ruling party.

“Therefore, the judgment of the Supreme Court does not in any way affect the APC; we are rather, happy about it, “ Yari said.

He maintained that it would be in the interest of the country`s democracy if the PDP could put its house together to ensure a formidable opposition ahead of the 2019 elections.
