The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the claims that it deceived Nigerians and won the general elections in 2015 through propaganda.
APC National Publicity Secretary Bolaji Abdullahi, who said this in a statement on Thursday, noted that the party remains determined in its belief to bring about change in Nigeria through progressive ideology.
In his words, the party’s spokesman said: “When in 2015, we fought for election, I hear Nigerians say ‘Oh! APC deceived us with propaganda’, We did not deceive anybody with propaganda.
“We believe that we could actually use progressive ideology to bring about change in Nigeria and in the last three and half years, we have done nothing in spite of difficulties but to try to advance the boundaries of this agenda.”
He denied the allegation in his address on Thursday at the inauguration of newly-appointed board chairpersons and members of parastatals and agencies under the Ministry of Industry Trade and Investment, in Abuja.
Abdullahi, who is the Chairman of the Governing Board of the National Sugar Development Council, noted that the newly-inaugurated boards would not take over the running of Federal Government agencies and parastatals.
Instead, he said they would deploy their political skill to help the agencies and parastatals navigate political difficulties encountered in the course of delivering their respective mandates.
While thanking President Muhammadu Buhari for the assignment, the APC spokesman said the appointment has brought about a sense of belonging among members who worked hard for the party’s victory during the 2015 general elections.
He said: “Mr President has made every one of us very proud today. For close to three years, wherever I have gone, I see party members sneaking around almost ashamed to call themselves members of the APC because the people we fought so hard to remove from power, many of them are still sitting pretty in their positions and many members who worked hard for the party are still hanging around and didn’t have a sense of belonging.
“At the penultimate APC National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari promised that the board appointments will be made, and all the boards will be inaugurated before March 9.”
