The All Progressives Congress (APC), says it has never rigged any election because of the trust Nigerians have in the party.
The APC stated that it has track record in implementing projects and programmes that meet the needs of Nigerians, adding that it had attracted more members and supporters to the party.
John James Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the APC, said this in a statement on Wednesday.
The APC denied allegation by Uche Secondus, national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it plans to rig the 2023 election.
Akpanudoedehe stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari -led government has introduced electoral reforms to ensure that future electoral processes are not abused.
He said members of the APC were victims of PDP’s election rigging in the 16 years the opposition was in power.
“We want to remind Nigerians that while many APC members were victims of rigging when the PDP was in power, the APC has no record of rigging elections”, he said.
“The Muhammadu Buhari-led administation has introduced electoral reforms aimed at ensuring that all loopholes that open the electoral process to possible abuse in future elections are sealed and eliminated.
“With more than 40 million registered members, the APC has a solid foundation to successfully contest and win elections against other parties without tampering with the verdict of the citizens as was the case when PDP misruled the country for 16 years”.
Akpanudoedehe stressed that the PDP is doomed to fail in any future elections because it has no leadership or organisational structure, and too weak to be an effective opposition.
“The only thing that held the PDP together in the 16 years was access to national resources of which it has been deprived of feasting on by the electorates whose trust it lost during two general elections,” he stated.
“Nigerian electorates know that the APC is a party of people with integrity, who are trustworthy and fully prepared to implement policies that will address their interests and enhance their general wellbeing.”
