Muhammed said that the group would collaborate with the party’s NWC led by Ganduje to inaugurate a situation room to monitor and report on the lapses and inadequacies of the elections.
“The Confederation of APC Support Groups (CASG) is also using this platform to reassure the party that our foot soldiers will collaborate with the Ganduje’s Committee.
“We will engage deeply and streamline templates for the success of our party in the forthcoming Governorship elections and National Assembly bye-elections in Kogi, Ekiti, Bayelsa, Ondo, Imo and Edo states, by the grace of Almighty God.
“For these upcoming elections, CASG is going to set up a situation room to monitor and report on the lapses and inadequacies of the elections at every polling unit in all the states and NASS by- elections.”
The director-general said that the group had instructed its members where the Governorship elections and NASS bye- elections will take place, to move their polling units to their respective states.
According to him, this will enable to vote for APC candidates in those states.
“In view of this, we appeal to the party to bear on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to open its platform.
