Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State,on Thursday said contrary to the mindset of many that the newly registered coalition platform, All Progressives Congress (APC) was conceived only to overthrow the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at all costs, it is an ideology committed to rescuing Nigeria from many years of bad leadership and disappointing governance.
The governor who, described it as a movement and not a political party, adding that “APC is driven by its constitution and manifesto; it is not driven by individual whims and caprices.
“The primary reason for coming together, for broadening the base is the fact that we acknowledged that we were too narrow in our individual party formations. And we wanted a broader national movement, ”He said.
“It is not about replacing PDP; it is about rescuing Nigeria from bad governance. We know that there are elements even within PDP that are not happy with the way our country is being run.
“APC is a movement; it is not just a political party, and people must note that very carefully. And when you have such a broad movement, of course, there are going to be individuals in such,”He added.
