From Romanus Ugwu, Abuja

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has revealed that the target of the ruling party in the 2027 general elections will be to win more states and ensure the re-election of President Bola Tinubu.

Ganduje made the disclosure in his remarks at the maiden policy round-table organised by APC Professionals Forum as a build-up to the one-year anniversary of the President Tinubu-led administration held in Abuja on Tuesday.

The former governor of Kano State further argued that Nigeria’s economy has been transformed into a credit-based consumer economy that will improve agriculture, with emphasis on dry season farming, with a positive impact on food security, food price, enabling infrastructure, and access to education, among others.

On the target of the party for the 2027 general elections, Ganduje said: “Even though it is not yet an election period, we are reinvigorating that party to ensure that come 2027, we will retain and get new state governors, as well as Mr President, to secure another mandate to continue with his government’s policies and programmes.

“We have also constituted at the national level a Reconciliation Committee that would reconcile all aggrieved Party members, and such committee will be established at the state, local government and ward levels,” he said.

While enumerating the achievements of the current administration, he said: “Now that the economy is shifting towards renewable and sustainable energy sources, the use of cheap and clean Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) has now become a reality under President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

“On infrastructure, Mr President has approved the construction/completion and rehabilitation of several road projects across the country including the Kano – Abuja Road, Kano – Eastern Bypass Road Project, the 700 Km Lagos – Calabar Coastal Road, the 1000 Km Badagry – Sokoto Road, the 3500 Units Renewed Hope Housing Cities and Estates now being built in 13 states of the country, for starters.

“In the next few days, the Students Loan Fund will become operational, and Nigerian youth will now have easier access to higher education by applying for funds from the scheme.

“On power, I have observed the increased transmission capacity of the country that now peaks at 14000 megawatts. On the party, we are gradually restructuring our party into a truly grassroots progressive party.

“We have directed our State Chapters to liaise with their respective governors and other stakeholders to ensure that we have full-fledged, functional offices in every political ward and state to enable our members across the country to have symbolic representation in their neighbourhood,” he said.
