Buhari reveals plan for APC to remain in power

President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is plotting to make sure the All Progressives Congress (APC) continue to rule Nigeria “for as long as possible”.

“We are doing all we can to make the APC to be in power for as long as possible.

“That is why we carried out the revalidation exercise. From state to state; local government to local government and ward by ward,” Buhari said during a special interview with the Nigerian Television Authority.

Buhari’s disclosure comes barely a week after Attorney General Abubakar Malami proposed the suspension of the Nigerian Constitution and the application of martial law to him under the excuse that the myriad of security challenges facing the country required to extra-legal move.

Instructively, former ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had held similar notion to hold onto power for at least 60 years.

The PDP eventually lost power in 2015, just after 16 years at the center.
