The All Progressives Congress, APC, cannot beat the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the 2015 general elections, Deputy National Chairman of the party, Chief Uche Secondus has boasted.
Secondus, who made this known at an enlarged meeting of the Akwa Ibom State caucus of the PDP in Uyo, the state capital on Thursday, said the opposition lacked the national spread to defeat the ruling party.
He also commended the PDP stakeholders in the state for holding onto the party from inception in 1999, adding that the PDP at the national level was very proud of Akwa Ibom State and its governor, Godswill Akpabio, for what he is doing to transform the state.
Secondus remarked: “I am overwhelmed and I believe that Akwa Ibom is setting the pace for the entire country to follow. The 2014 campaign is going to revolve around ward chairmen. The entire Nigeria should know that PDP is well rooted in all the wards of the country. We have over 9,000 wards across the country with PDP offices.
“I want the opposition party to challenge me if they have offices in these wards across this nation. PDP will win the election that is coming in 2015 because we are rooted in these wards. This is one secret the opposition does not know. They believe in blackmail and propaganda. It can’t work”, Secondus said.
