“Also there is a very strong movement now to reconcile the major actors and I think that is also making the party stronger”. Ganduje said.
Ganduje who said he is hopeful that despite the wranglings within the APC, the party would resolve all differences and put its house in order before 2023 further advised the party’s leadership to do a lot of planning and research to adopt the best option and approach in winning subsequent polls in the country.
