APC Will Emerge Victorious In 2027 – Group Blasts Atiku, Obi Over Gang-up Against Tinubu



APC Chieftain Urges Nigerians To Have Faith In Tinubu’s Administration

A support group of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the National Progressive Hub (NPH), has criticized the recent gang-up against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu by two former presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

News About Nigeria reports that the group dismissed the realignment of forces by the opposition as a failed strategy.

The group made their intent known through its national coordinator of NPH, Bukie Okangbe, who addressed newsmen at the APC national secretariat in Abuja, on Friday.

She expressed confidence in the APC’s victory in the 2027 elections, citing President Tinubu’s outstanding performance during his first year in office.

She said: “The ongoing alignment of political parties and politicians in the country shown obviously that some are ready to match up with us come 2027. We are confident though that Nigerians are with us more than they were during the last elections due to the leadership quality of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”

Okangbe advised APC leaders and members to unite, stressing that the opposition’s strategy has already faltered.

She appealed for an end to the “witch-hunting” of party leaders, urging members to embrace them with love and open hearts.

The group also rejected any form of witch-hunt against party leaders, emphasizing that the strength of the APC lies in the faithfulness of its members.

Okangbe pleaded with Nigerians to bear with the president and have faith in the administration, assuring that the present hardship is temporary and the president is committed to fulfilling his election promises.

The group’s comments come after Peter Obi met with Atiku Abubakar, Bukola Saraki, and Sule Lamido in separate visits, which led to speculation about a potential alliance ahead of the 2027 elections.

In a statement following the meetings, the LP presidential campaign spokesman Tanko Yunusa said Obi visited them to discuss the “state of the nation”.

“Worried about the state of the nation and the increasing uncertainty in the living conditions of the poor and underprivileged, Obi in Abuja on Monday visited some top Nigerians, among whom are former vice president, and PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, the former Senate President Senator Bukola Saraki and the former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido,” the statement read.
