EX- media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Ima Niboro, said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a viable platform that will ensure the desired change in the country.
He spoke at the APC National Secretariat while meeting with the party`s National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun on Thursday in Abuja.
Niboro who recently dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was formally received by APC stalwarts in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta, where he hailed from on December 5. He urged politicians to remain focused and not to distract the President Muhammad Buhari-led administration.
“This is the time to work and not time for making noise.
“It is time for anybody who is a politician to go to the grassroots and work, we should not wait till election time.
“This is the time we should start the processes to convince people that this is a viable platform and once we do that, I am sure we will be able to do very well.’’
He described as a “wonderful one’’, his meeting with the APC national chairman whom he said he met last in 1992 when he was Governor of Edo.
Niboro described the APC national chairman as ‘’a father-figure in the South-South,’’ adding that he had been following Odigie-Oyegun’s political career for a long time.
He said that the APC national chairman received him warmly to the party, adding that he discussed major issues with him, especially issues concerning Delta.
The APC national chairman, while receiving Niboro expressed satisfaction with his decision to join the party.
He also expressed optimism that Niboro would bring his political expertise to bear in advancing the party and the country generally.
Niboro had earlier said that his decision to join the party was to align Delta with the government at the national level with a view to fast track development in the state.
