Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-east on Thursday said the party hopes to win at least three governorship elections in the region.
The party also said it was targeting at least three speakership positions in the state assemblies in the zone and also hopes to have its members win a majority of the National Assembly seats for the zone.
The APC last year lost Imo State, the only state it controlled in the region, to the opposition People Democratic Party (PDP) during the general elections.
Four out of the five states in the region – Abịa, Ebonyi, Imo and Enugu – are controlled by the PDP while Anambra is controlled by the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
The Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, revealed the party’s target at his country home Uburu, Ohaozara Local government area of Ebonyi State, during a stakeholders’ meeting.
According to him, for the target to be achieved, the party leaders in the zone must come together to strategically reposition the party in the region, ahead of 2023 general elections.
He urged aggrieved party faithful to forgive whatever wrongs may have been done to them so as to forge a common front ahead of the next general elections.
