A former National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Umar Ibrahim Tsauri has predicted the collapse of the All Progressives Congress (APC) during its February 2022 planned convention, thereby describing the party as “a contraption” with neither program nor ideological position.
Tsauri said this at a welcome-home reception organised by the Katsina State chapter of the PDP in honour of his “meritorious service”, which was held at the party’s secretariat in Katsina State.
He said, “APC is not a political party but an association of people with no political ideology. In fact, the party is a contraption with neither program nor ideological position.
“The party (APC) retrieved power from us (PDP) in 2015 but they don’t know how to go about it. They said PDP will end before the convention but we have successfully conducted our convention. But I want to assure you people that APC will collapse on the day of its convention.
“The ruling party with visionary leaders and political ideology would adopt revolving measures to end the prevailing security challenges, poverty, economic hardship and unemployment afflicting the citizenry.
“The ability of the PDP to hold a violence-free convention had shown that the party is more formidable and ready to take charge of the presidency in 2023.”
