Nigeria’s ruling party on Tuesday said it was committed to good governance and a participatory democracy which allows for peaceful, free, fair, credible and transparent elections.

Lanre Issa-Onilu, spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this in a statement reaching Xinhua in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub.


He called on citizens to look forward to the year 2019 with great optimism and positive possibilities.

The APC spokesman charged Nigerians to reflect on progress made by the APC-led administration in the last three and half years as they enter the new year.

Issa-Onilu added that it was heartwarming to note that Nigeria had now turned the corner, moving away from the years of waste toward a stable and prosperous future.

According to him, the 2019 forthcoming general elections provides a great opportunity to consolidate on the progress made together as a country under the APC administration.

He reiterated the party’s stand that candidates that should be elected at all levels must be those that could pass the integrity test.

Issa-Onilu added that the APC NEXT LEVEL campaign provided a clear roadmap to further deliver on its promises and the change agenda which was largely harped on fighting corruption, improving the economy and tackling insecurity.

“As a nation, we urge all to kick against unpatriotic practices such as hate campaign, spurious and unsubstantiated allegations,”

the APC spokesman said. Enditem
