The All Progressives Congress (APC) will not be satisfied with 25 percent votes from the Southeast, National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, said yesterday.
He spoke while inaugurating an eight-man Abia State Reconciliation Committee led by Senator Chris Adighije.
Adamu urged the leaders in the zone to rise above differences and work for the party’s victory in the general election.
He said: “Let Abia go and sit together. All the national elections – House of Representatives, Senate, governorship, presidential election – we will not be satisfied with just the 25 percent of the vote cast.
“We need the majority of the vote cast for APC. No halfway about it. If we are to win, we must try to win every state.
“We have to do some work and stand together. This is the time to unite; this is the time to work for unity. If we do, God will be with us.”
Adamu advised warring factions in Abia to bury their hatchet and work for the party’s success.
“I hope that with what we have done (inauguration of the committee), there will be peace and we hope this is the very last step. We are not going to hold a reconciliation meeting again.
