A member of the House of Representatives, Husain Kangiwa, has described the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s victory in Ekiti State, as a sign of its popularity ahead of 2019 elections.

The lawmaker from Kebbi State, who represents Arewa/Dandi Federal constituency, stated this yesterday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birinin-Kebbi.

Kangiwa, who is Chairman, House Committee on Governmental Affairs, said the election was also an indication of the party’s preparedness for the 2019 general election.


He said: “This victory showed that we are playing politics of reality, and not propaganda like the opposition parties are doing.”

Kangiwa further said that the APC had fulfilled its campaign promises of fighting corruption, improving security and boosting economic activities in the country.

He slammed those who defected from the APC to other parties, describing them as selfish politicians, adding: “They don’t have the nation’s interest in their hearts.

They are doing it for their personal and self-interest, and not for the country.

“We have so many ongoing projects across the country and these projects directly affect the lives of individuals in the country,” noting that President Muhammadu Buhari is doing well, and we don’t care about what our critics are saying.”

He urged Nigerians to remember that the APC assumed powers when all the sectors in the country were in shamble and at the brink of collapse.

Another lawmaker, Senator Magnus Abe, supported Kangiwa’s position and advised political parties to ensure that their candidates interface with the people to gain high-level popularity.
