APC Is Not A Dollar-sharing Party, Oyegun Tells PDP Defectors
National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has told those defecting into the party from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, not to see the ruling party as a Ghana-must-go party where dollars are being shared.
Speaking yesterday at the party’s grand reception for its newly registered members in Cross River State, he described the party as a gathering of progressive minds
Prominent among those received into the party’s fold include; former senate leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, Senator Bassey Otu, Rtd. Brig. Gen. Enang Ukagu, Barr. Fidelis Ugbo, Dr. Alex Egbona, Prince Jeddy Agba among other.
Oyegun expressed satisfaction with the large number of new members who graced the occasion, stressing that it is an indication that the APC ideologies were widely accepted by Cross Riverians.
“We have started moving Nigeria to greatness, but we need men of good will and unquestionable character to help us clear this country of all its mess.
“Few years from now, we are going to have a progressive government in Cross River considering the high caliber of people who have moved into the party.”
He declared that gone are the days when Cross River was referred to as a one party State, saying that is no longer tenable because change has eventually come.
“Democracy is all about choices and alternatives. Today, we join the APC which is a viable alternative platform.
“The idea that Cross River is a one party State is no longer tenable, change has indeed come,” the former lawmaker declared.
