Nigeria’s Ambassador to Germany, Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, has explained why the All Progressives Congress (APC) will easily wrestle power from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bauchi State in 2023.
He made this statement while fielding questions from journalists in Bauchi,
According to the envoy, the poor performance of the PDP government in the state in the last two years would make it easy for APC to bounce back to power.
He said that to achieve this aim, the current government in the state, APC stakeholders from the state based in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, ought to play grassroots politics.
“The APC will not require much efforts to wrestle power from the PDP in Bauchi State given the fact that the party has performed below the expectation of the people, which the APC can deliver due to its antecedents in the state.
“It now behooves on the APC stakeholders in Abuja from Bauchi State to do the needful in line with the true principles of the party, particularly at the grassroots level.
“We have to go back to the basics by doing what made the party succeed in the past, which is grassroot politics,” Tuggar said.
He submitted that playing grassroot politics would ensure that the people of the state feel direct impact of governance, adding that the electorates ought to really know that APC is a progressive party.
“Grassroot politics is geared towards ensuring fairness and equity in all electoral processes and ensuring internal democracy. This will make sure that the people are feeling the impact of governance directly.
“It is incumbent on us who are at the centre of the APC government to do the needful for people to know that APC is truly a progressive party,” he said.
Tuggar expressed satisfaction over the process and smooth conduct of the APC Congress during which party officials emerge in Gamawa Local Government Area of State.
