Some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday in Abuja expressed optimism that the party would win the next presidential elections.
The members expressed their views in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) following former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s declaration to contest for presidency in 2015.
Mr Sale Mustapha, one of the members, said “I believe that APC is going to win the forth coming 2015 presidential election in Nigeria.
“With the spate of happenings around, APC, if given an opportunity, will make a change”.
Mallam Danlami Abubakar, another member, said that the party had “devised strategies to ensure a definite win.
“Part of the strategies we devised is massive youth mobilisation and enlightenment campaigns. We also pledge to encourage creativity, their ideas will be valued.
“This, we believe, will curb brain drain and encourage originality”.
Alhaji Isiaku Mohammed, a Zonal Chairman of the party who defected from PDP, expressed the belief that APC would win the 2015 election because of its “vision”.
“Our vision and mission is to provide jobs for the youth, adequate security and adequate social amenities to our dear nation”.

Some of the groups included the APC Youth Vanguard, Turaki Support Group, Rescue Youth Group, Turaki No Problem and Nollywood Actresses for Change.
