A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Nigerians are no longer interested in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Olisaemeka Akamukale, a member of the APC Board of Trustees (BoT), also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to look outside the party to find support for his government.

Akamukale made the comments while speaking to journalists at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, August 17, 2016.

“I think beyond what Buhari should do to APC members, this is not about APC members; it is about Nigerians,” he said according to The Cable.

“What is the percentage of APC members? How many of us voted? The percentage of real APC members couldn’t have made Buhari a president. So, it is actually Nigerians.

“So, I think the president should bring on board those who believe in the change mantra, those who yearned for change, that could assist Mr President in delivering the dividend of democracy to the masses of this country because at the end of the people that loose or gain are the Nigerians.

“Nigerians voted for us and there are things they are expecting from us. It is for Nigerians and not about me or about APC members but for Nigerians to know what this government will do to benefit them.”

 “PDP should take a clue from APC, do what we did. Let the name PDP die because Nigeria no longer wants that. That umbrella has torn. They should go back and form a new party, not using wasted pipelines, because some of the politicians that are even jumping to PDP are those that are rejected in APC, Modu Sheriff included,” he added.
