2019 election: APC speaks on newly formed coalition

  The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the newly formed coalition.

The ruling party said the prospect of a coalition ahead of the 2019 general elections did not in anyway threaten it.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, spoke with Punch in Abuja, on Wednesday.

Abdullahi said, “The prospect of a coalition does not threaten the APC at all. The only threat we can begin to worry about lies with the Nigerian people.

“If it is about competition for power, how many political parties do we have? That is enough reason for us to worry about competition.

“If another coalition is set up for the purpose of winning power good luck to them, that is the essence of constitutional democracy, a multi-party system thrives in that kind of situation.

“So, we don’t feel any threat, we don’t feel concerned; they are welcome to the field.”
