A former national secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Umar Ibrahim Tsauri, has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is not a political party but an association of people with no political ideology.

He described the APC as “a contraption” with no program or ideological position, predicting the party‘s collapse at its convention scheduled for February 2022.

Tsauri spoke at a welcome reception hosted by the Katsina State branch of the PDP in honor of his “meritorious service”, held at the party secretariat in Katsina.

He said: “The APC is not a political party but an association of people with no political ideology. In fact, the party is an engine without a program or ideological position.

“The party (APC) took over power from us (PDP) in 2015 but they don’t know how to go about it. They said the PDP would end before the convention, but we ran our convention successfully. But I want to assure you that APC will crumble on the day of its convention.

He explained that a ruling party with visionary leaders and political ideology would take relentless measures to end the security problems, poverty, economic hardship and unemployment plaguing the citizens.

He said, however, that the PDP’s ability to hold a convention without violence showed that the party is more formidable and ready to take over the presidency in 2023.

Katsina State Party Chairman, Hon. Salisu Yusuf Majigiri, while addressing the dignitaries, said that the PDP would regain power in 2023 to make things better for the country and its citizens having experienced what he called the poor governance of the APC.

He described the party’s successful convention as proof that the party has learned from its pitfalls in the 2015 general election and is ready to return to power in 2023.

According to him, “the PDP now has well-equipped structures at the ward, local government, state and national levels to regain power in the upcoming general elections.”
