The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it will hold a funeral ceremony for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) come the Presidential elections on March 28.

The statement was made by APC Chairman, John Oyegun during a rally in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.

“We were in the North-west yesterday. You know the North-West is the home base of the in-coming president. South-South is also important to us because it is the home of the out-going president.  These zones are crucial,” Oyegun said.

“I thank you for your support, courage and resilience. You have survived your oppressors despite all odds. Goodluck Jonathan is our son and brother but he has failed us as a region and Nigeria. So we want to send him on an honourable retirement. I know you will all support the APC in this venture because we must send him home,” he added.

“PDP is confused and disoriented. They have no sense of direction. PDP is down but not out yet. So a lot of work still needs to be done, that is why we are here. Let me also assure you that PDP’s funeral still holds despite the rescheduling of the elections,” the APC Chairman said.

“We will have a good funeral ceremony for PDP come March 28. I want you to promise me that you will all come out and deliver these votes. And that you will be there, ready and prepared to make sure that every vote counts. We are going to deliver the entire South- South to our president in-waiting, General Muhammadu Buhari,” he added.

President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP and Muhammadu Buhari of the APC are viewed as the strongest candidates in the upcoming election and it is believed that one of them will emerge winner.
