North-West APC strengthens reconciliation drive ahead of 2023 polls

The party said the reconciliatory drive did not suggest it would lose the elections, but “to ensure we leave no stone unturned”.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North-West has said that it is reconciling with aggrieved members as part of its strategies to win the 2023 polls.

Musa Mada, APC national zonal publicity secretary, North-West, disclosed this in an interview on Saturday in Kaduna.

He said the reconciliatory drive did not suggest that the party would lose the elections, but “we are taking up this strategy as a challenge to ensure we leave no stone unturned”.

Mr Mada said although the party would not disclose all its strategies publicly, reconciliatory drive among aggrieved members was a key strategy that would be pursued vigorously.

“Naturally, there would be those offended one way or the other, and their grievances might be either legitimate or flimsy, and as a party, you must reconcile them.

“We are proud our national chairman is already taking the bull by the horn, beginning at the national level,” Mr Mada said.

“As we embark on our zonal tour, we interact with stakeholders, and from there, we are able to gather information and come out on how to go about correcting what needs to be corrected,” Mr Mada added.

Mr Mada, who cited the case of the just-concluded Osun governorship election, noted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won the election partly because of the internal disputes in the APC.
