Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed confidence that the party will win the general election in 2023 if it is held in a free and fair manner.
Adamu made the statement, on Wednesday, June 15, while receiving Joanna Tarnawska, the Polish Ambassador to Nigeria, at his office in Abuja.
With the massive support the party enjoyed from over 43 million Nigerians, there is no way the party will lose the 2023 elections.
The APC was conscious of the effects of developments in Nigeria on other African countries and we are prepared to conduct ourselves at the next elections according to international best practices.
Nigeria is a developing democratic nation and lessons are being learnt in electoral processes. But the APC will continue to do everything to advance democratic practice in Nigeria.
Adamu also informed the Polish ambassador that the APC had produced a female governorship candidate in conservative northern Nigeria as a result of the opportunities provided by the party.
The Polish ambassador had earlier congratulated the chairman on his election as chairman while visiting him after the party’s successful national convention, which resulted in the election of a presidential flagbearer.
She stated that her country was interested in Nigerian political developments and that she hoped for a peaceful transition to a new president when President Muhammadu Buhari’s term finishes next year.
Tarnawska also urged the APC to provide opportunities for women and young people to get involved in politics.
Poland looks forward to improved bilateral diplomatic relations between both countries but particularly in improved economic relations.
The ambassador expressed empathy over the challenges Nigeria was facing especially in the area of security, noting that her country had faced similar challenges in the past.
