National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdulahi Adamu, has declared that the ruling party will be merciless against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in ensuring victory and retaining its position in the Osun Government House after the July 16 State governorship election.

He spoke during the formal inauguration of the 86-man National Campaign Council for the Osun poll held at the party’s national secretariat on Thursday in Abuja, going spiritual to seek divine intervention in ensuring victory at the poll.

He specifically directed members of the National Campaign Council not to spare, for any reason what so ever, the opposition party, declaring; “we are going there to win by the grace of God.”

He further urged them to do whatever it takes, within the laws of the land, to win the election, challenging the opposition party to go complain wherever; “Let us win the election, we have no apologies whatsoever for this posture because these two elections are the best for the national election coming up in 2003.”

He however pointed out that the target for the Osun state is a must win, adding that the real war confronting the party is to win the presidential election in 2023.

While declaring that the ruling party will do everything within the law to win the election, he said: “We are here to inaugurate the national campaign council of the forth coming Osun state governorship election. You will recall that just about a week ago, we faced the challenge that was posed by the governorship election of Ekiti state and with God’s own grace, we were able to scale with flying colours it wasn’t by the divine grace of our creator Mighty God.

“The next huddle we have is to confront with all vigour, with all strength we can master, the forth coming Osun governorship election. So, we must be prepared to face PDP eyeball to eyeball. There is no sparing for any reason what so ever, no sparing this party, the PDP. We are going there to win by the grace of God. That plan is to win, the ability to execute the plan is with the leadership that this council is going to provide in the campaign efforts.

“I urge you to leave no stone unturned. I urge you to go there and do whatever is doable within the laws of Nigeria and our electoral laws to win. My tolerance level and this national working committee level for failure is really really zero.

“Most of you have been statesmen in your own right, the offices you held before today, but for this exercise, take off the big guns, take off the creepy suits wear and go down the trench and bring that victory we want.

“Nobody should come back to us crying, failure is not our own by the grace of God. Whatever it takes within the laws of the land, I said go for it, win the election. Let them go complain, let them go wherever, let’s win the election, we have no apologies whatsoever for this posture because these two elections are for best to the national election coming up in 2003.

“It will go in our credentials that we have the winning track record this National Working Committee that you elected we have a commitment. What we mean by the commitment is the 2023 general election is facing us. We have to face it squarely. There is no option to wining the national election and these state elections are like I said forebears to the national election.

“We must show those who love us by showing those who are our adversaries in the strongest possible way that we are in control. No apologize to anybody, we are the party of government, we are the party ruling the country today, no apologize for anybody.

“The reality is Nigerians chose APC and we will do everything we can to retain this position of envy. Now, we have determined as a party, who will be our flag bearer in the forthcoming presidential election in 2023. We have Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinibu as our presidential candidate you all know that. Now these elections are first steps, we are taking towards victory in 2023. We must not play with this, we start preparing for these now.

“The challenge, everybody’s arrow is pointing at us, so we must show our capacity to bear the pressure and move our forces forward to victory. We are winning the battle of the states, but the real war to be won is the presidential election in 2023. And I do hope that we will not spare efforts to ensure that we come back victorious,” he said.

Speaking ad the Co-Chair to the Campaign Council, the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje promised to work day and night to deliver on the assignment.

He warned that though the opposition party will approach the poll with moneybags, they will however approach the poll with strategy bags.

“We will be committed. Some of us have already started behind the scene. One important issue about Osun election is reconciliation. Internal dynamics of the party is very important.

“So reconciliation is totally necessary so that we will believe in each other. We agreed that all stakeholders in Osun State will come together and constitute into one single force in order to win this important election. I am happy the secretary of our great party is from Osun state and I think he is very useful to this election in Osun state.

Some of us who participated in the last election that brought the current governor into office, we knew the interplay of variables that took place. And that led us to a new terminology in election, inconclusive election.

“I assure you, Mr Chairman, this time this election, will be conclusively conclusive. I believe the stakeholders in Osun State will add value to their preparedness. And ensure that the 30 LGAs in Osun State leadership have all prepared for this election.

“We will take the previous events and unify it and see how things stood at that time. And what variables that went in-between the election and now. And see how we can compete for success because this is our efforts to our party.

“We are told that we are fighting an opposition with moneybags. But, we want to assure you that we are coming with strategy bags.. We are seeking for the cooperation of all stakeholders especially our governors. Members of NWC to coordinate well with all the committees and stakeholders in conducting an election. So, we want to assure you that this election is a task that must be done within the processes of democracy and also within legal procedures,” he said.
