Speaking in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Sunday, the party’s National Organising Secretary and the chairman of the anniversary committee Senator Osita Izunaso said APC has every reason to celebrate its existence as a political party because of it numerous achievements recorded in the last two years.

He said that it is unprecedented that within two years of APC registration as a party, it has 22 governors, controlling the two chambers of the National Assembly and also have President Muhammadu Buhari as the number one citizen of Nigeria.
According to him, it will not only be a mere celebration, but the party will use the opportunity to embark on soul-searching exercise on how best to deliver on the promises made to the Nigerians.

“We also want to use the avenue for internal soul search to let ourselves know that the task ahead is more than the one behind.”
