The Minister of State, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Dr Mariya Mahmoud, has promised to rejuvenate the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to make great impact in future elections in the FCT.

Mahmoud said this at a meeting with the FCT chairman, officials, and other members of the party in Abuja. 

She expressed concern over the poor performance of the party in the 2023 Presidential Election in the territory.

She, however, expressed optimism that with President Bola Tinubu at the helm of affairs, the party would overcome its challenges and do better in subsequent elections in FCT.

Mahmoud commended the party members for their patience in spite of challenges and stressed the need for stakeholders to close ranks and work together for the success of the party.

The minister, who called for the commitment and dedication of members added, “If we want to succeed, we must be honest to each other; we must be dedicated and support one another.

“We must also come together and work with sincerity for the growth of our party in our hearts.

“By God’s grace, we are going to make it,’’ she said.

Mahmoud pledged to use her experience to ensure victory for the party in the FCT in future elections, just like the case in Kano State.

“We have only six area councils in FCT with 62 wards, so this is very visible and achievable.

“I know, we have problems, and every party has problems, but our own problems have already been solved by the Almighty Allah,” she said.

In his remarks, the APC FCT Chairman, Mr Abdulmalik Usman, described the party’s situation in the territory as pathetic, considering its decimal performance in the 2023 poll.

Usman identified lack of patronage and reward system for those who worked for the party as the major factors contributing to the low performance of APC in the nation’s capital.

He assured of the total loyalty of members and continued support to the party’s National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje. (NAN)
