Ahead of this years’ Anambra State governorship election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed confidence of winning the poll, promising to provide a level playing field during the party primary to elect the candidate of the party for the poll.
Anambra APC Caretaker Committee chairman, Chief Basil Ejidike, who gave the assurance in a chat with Daily Sun in Abuja, revealed that arrangements have been perfected to ensure that the APC emerges victorious to occupy the Anambra Government House after the governorship poll.
Asked if APC Anambra state chapter will go for a consensus candidate during the primaries, Ejidike replied: “If it is the collective decision and if it is what will give us the desired victory, why not. However, the consensus must follow due process. Everybody must be carried along to ensure that the outcome of the party primaries does not destabilise the party.
“We are interested in winning not everybody jumping into the ring to contest. As party leadership, we will provide a level playing field for every interested aspirant,” he promised.
On what is giving him the confidence that the APC will win the state governorship election, he said: “For those that followed the last governorship election few years ago, it was clear that the APC was close to clinching the victory if not the internal crisis we had then.”
