The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the APC will engage the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on issues-based campaigns for the 2019 general elections.

Oshiomhole said he was anxiously waiting for the emergence of a PDP presidential candidate to commence the confrontation predicated on issues- based campaign as the opposition party cannot have a credible candidate like the APC, President Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC national chairman made this declaration while speaking at the 2018 Special National Convention of the party in Abuja where about 7000 delegates across the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) adopted the election of President Buhari as the party’s flag bearer for the 2019 presidential election. He stated that campaign for the 2019 general elections will not be on primordial sentiments but on the character, integrity and antecedents of candidates, attributes which nobody in the PDP has.
Oshiomhole maintained that since charity begins at home, if aspirants in PDP promises Nigerians heaven on earth, they must show what they have done for their immediate constituencies in previous positions held. He said, “The National Working Committee (NWC) of our party in the last three months insisted we must reactivate membership register and it was used to conduct elections across the country”.
