The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said that there is no competition to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Shittu, a former member of the Oyo State House of Assembly, disclosed this to newsmen that President Muhammadu Buhari has been a blessing to the party.
He said that no party in Nigeria could challenge the ruling party, adding that the current crisis rocking the party will not pose a challenge.
He said, “Currently, I don’t see any competition to APC.
“The fact that you have crisis – even in individual homes, we have crisis. That does not make that family to go into extinction.
“You must appreciate that political parties are not classrooms where you have one master, one teacher who beats everybody to line. We have a party which came as a result of the agglomeration of several interests who all believed in the symbol that President Muhammadu Buhari represents.
“No other party has that symbolic leader who can be respected, who commands the followership of millions of ordinary Nigerians, and I believe all active participants in the APC appreciate that Buhari is a blessing to the party. He’s the one whose euphoria, whose whirlwind brought a lot of people into political offices in 2015 and he is still available to do the same magic there. In any case, if anybody doubts you, you want to ask them who is the alternative who can beat Buhari and which is the alternative political party which can compete with APC in 2019? ”
