The national chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Oye has said that his party would deploy the template it designed, which gave them victory in the Anambra governorship election to win eight more states in the 2019 general election.
Oye, however, refused to say if his party would field a presidential candidate for the 2019 presidential election, saying it was too early to say as the dynamics of politics may overtake whatever decision the party takes now.
The national chairman who briefed journalists on the victory of the party in Saturday’s governorship election said the party worked hard for the victory and could not have afforded not to have won.
He acknowledged that the victory was made possible by the stiff opposition put up by opposing political parties who almost ran the APGA out of town with threats and propaganda.
“If we were afraid, we would have taken to flight. We would have run away and abandoned the election. But because they continued to intensify campaign against us, we also made strategies for the elections and today we have won,” he said.
Oye who described himself as the chief strategist of the election said he would deploy the same strategy to win Abia, Ebonyi, Imo, Enugu, Nasarawa, Delta in the 2019 general election.
“As for whether we will field a candidate for the presidential position, I will rather not say anything about that now. You know the dynamics of Nigerian politics, I may say something today and tomorrow things will change and you will say, Oye said it.”
