APC: We’ll rather lose election than win by any means

The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday said it would rather lose election than win by any means. APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, stated this in an interview with New Telegraph. According to Abdullahi, who was reviewing activities of the party for 2017, APC would rather lose an election than win by any means. The APC spokesperson said some people felt that the party was going to use its position to win the last governorship election conducted in Anambra State.

“But that was contrary as the party allowed a free and fair election,” he said. Severally, the opposition political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had raised the alarm, alleging that the ruling party was planning to rig the 2019 general elections. APC had, however, refuted the allegations of opposition party.

Also speaking on other issues, the APC spokesperson said the opposition party wanted to use being in opposition as a shield against prosecution of corruption charges. According to him, each time the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrests or invites anybody, the next thing the person would say was because he was in opposition political party.

He added that the APC’s fight against corruption was not political, therefore should be accepted by all. He dismissed the allegation that APC was responsible for the recent interrogation of the former Senate President, David Mark, by the EFCC or the arrest of any other person by the agency or any other security agency.

He said: “The APC fight against corruption is not political. Opposition political party members try to use opposition as a shield against prosecution. The APC was not EFCC, neither was it a security agency, it therefore does not carry out any arrest. Abdullahi also spoke on the APC Committee on True Federalism report.

According to him, the party had received the report from the committee. He, however, said that the party would submit the report to the National Assembly without any imposition. On the exit of the former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, from APC, Abdullahi said: “We are not happy but we are not worried; we can only be worried when we see people joining him.
