2027: You’ll struggle to get 2% votes in FCT – APC tells Tinubu

 The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, chapter of the All
Progressives Congress, APC, says President Bola Tinubu will struggle to get two
per cent votes in the 2027 presidential election in the capital if he fails to
stop the minister, Nyesom Wike from killing the party.


The party leaders stated this at a press conference in
Abuja, lamenting the disregard of APC members in recent appointments made by


They also said the party may lose the next Area Councils
election if the situation remains unchanged, claiming that the minister is
killing the political structure of the APC in FCT due to his lack of regard for
the party and its leadership.


The APC chieftains, led by convener, Comrade Abdulwahab
Ekekhide, and co-convener, David Omobolaji Obaje, said the minister, since
assuming office, has refused to sit with the leadership of the party, even
though the party has written him a series of letters for him to grant them
audience, but all to no avail.


Recall that Wike, a PDP member, was appointed FCT minister
by President Tinubu, the leader of the APC.


Ekekhide, however, said the leadership and entire members of
the APC family in the FCT, in unison, reject “in very strong terms the
continuous lopsided appointments, abandonment and total disregard for the APC
in FCT by the minister.”


“We call on Mr. President, who is the Governor-General to
call the Minister to order, so that he can retrace his steps and start
empowering the party or else, the party will struggle to get 2% for the
President in the 2027 Presidential election and may lose the next Area Councils
election if the situation remains this way.


“As we all know, the President is the Governor-General of
the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), but delegates his powers to a Minister,
and today Barr. Nyesom Wike is standing in for the President as Hon. Minister
of the FCT,” he added.
