I don’t think APC can win 2023 elections – Barr Shittu

The immediate past Minister of Communication, Barr Adebayo Shittu, on Wednesday, expressed doubts over the ability of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winning the 2023 election without Muhammadu Buhari.

The Saki-born politician said he sees no much difference between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in term of ideological approach to governance.

Shittu stated this in Osogbo while featuring on The Frontliners, a programme organised by Association of Veteran Journalists, Osun State branch.

He said the individual approach to governance is what differentiates parties in government from the opposition party, saying what he believed is the progressive ideals of individual.

“There is no difference between APC and PDP in terms of ideology. I believe in the ideals of the progressives.

In Oyo State, we had an APC government that imposed a fee of N3,000 each on pupils and a PDP government led by Seyi Makinde has abolished it.

“Workers are now receiving their salaries regularly. Before Ajimobi left, he was owing workers a minimum of seven months salaries. Seyi Makinde came on board, he cleared the salary arrears”.

Shittu said if the ruling party is not careful with the intrigues ongoing within the party, adding that without Buhari on the party’s mandate, it would be difficult for it to get votes in 2023 election.

According to him, if APC is not careful about the frustration being faced now, the party may find it hard to get votes in 2023. “APC must put its house order.
