Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have adopted a two-point agenda with which they hope to prosecute the 2015 election and outwit the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Sources close to the party confirmed to the Sunday Tribune on Saturday that the party has discovered that the twin issues remain the most critical that could yield it public acceptance.
According to the sources, the issues the APC considered very critical to the 2015 election campaign include insurgency and corruption.
A source said that shortly before the extra-ordinary national convention of the party held in Abuja a fortnight ago, officials and strategists had advised the party that adopting the two-way agenda would ensure it defeats the PDP in the 2015 election.
“Strategists of the APC have arrived at the decision to consistently hammer on insecurity and corruption as the main issues that will then prevail,” a source said.
The source added that loads of issues are readily available that can sustain long debates in that line, adding that the PDP can hardly extricate itself from any of the two issues.
“The decision was actually taken at the highest level of the party. Everyone that will be making public comments are to make the two key issues the subject of their discussions.
“They are to take the party to the cleaners every time they have to raise issues about 2015. With that approach, the public will get alienated from the PDP and we can then pave the way for the APC.”
Also last week, a group of senators 0f the opposition party, APC, resolved to make a meal out of the scourge of insurgency that has bedeviled the country.
Said a source privy to the meeting: “Senators of the main opposition party a have resolved that henceforth they would harp on the present security situation in the North-Eastern part of the country as their main agenda until the primaries and the main elections are conducted. This, they believe would weaken the bargaining power of the PDP at the polls.”
