Former presidential candidate, Professor Pat Utomi says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has performed below expectation.

Utomi however added that he and other founding members of the party would work on reforming it.

He made the comments during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in New York.

“I’m a member of the APC; I’m one of the real founding members of the APC,” he said.

“Forget that because some of us committed more to building real stuff and others rushed to take titles; but we founded the APC. It’s not been what we thought it would be; let’s be very honest, the party has under-performed, the party’s structure has been poor.

“The party leadership has been poor; government and the party have not worked well together.

“But we shall reform it from within by God’s grace and make it work better. We have to wish on God’s grace and hope that things work differently. Anything that works, that will make a difference, I will do,” he added.
