Delegates to vote in the ongoing presidential primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have expressed confidence that the party will become stronger and more united after the exercise.

A cross-section of the delegates who spoke at Eagle Square, venue of the historical event, were hopeful that the party would also win the 2023 general elections.

“APC will be more united after the primary election,” Sama’ila Ibrahim, from Kano State, said. “This is because the leaders and members of the party are real patriots, committed to the growth and development of democracy.”

John Also, a delegate from Oyo State, said, “I am not in any way apprehensive as the exercise will be successfully conducted.

“At the end, we will have a credible torch bearer who will by the special grace of God, succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We are here to elect a flag bearer, and we promise to do it peacefully and successfully, putting Nigeria ahead of all personal interests.”

The ruling party scheduled its special national convention to elect a presidential flag bearer from June 6 to 8.
