The All Progressives Congress, APC, has dismissed the ‘third force’ being promoted by former President Olusegun Obasanjo under the aegis of Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM)
Recall that CNM which aims to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 was launched in Abuja yesterday.
But, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi dismissed the gathering as a non-event.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Abdullahi queried: “How many months to the election? At the function, how many governors did you see there? How many senators did you see there? How many House of Representatives’ members did you see there?
“When a part of the PDP left for the APC in 2014, how many governors were there? At least five governors were there. How many senators? We have more than 40 senators. ”
“With due respect, let them continue to do what they are doing. We are busy. They are not even a political party. If they are not a political party, how can they be a threat to us? Civil society organization can’t contest election in Nigeria,” he said.
