2027 election: “You’ll struggle to get 2% votes in FCT” – APC to Tinubu



2027 election: "You'll struggle to get 2% votes in FCT" - APC to Tinubu

The FCT chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has issued a warning to Nigeria’s President Bola Tinubu.

The ruling party had predicted that, in the 2027 presidential election, Tinubu’s chances of securing even two percent of the votes in the capital are slim.

This prediction is based on the party’s belief that if Tinubu does not take action to prevent the minister, Nyesom Wike, from undermining the party, it could lead to its demise.

During a press conference held in Abuja, the party leaders expressed their concerns over the recent appointments made by Wike, highlighting the alleged disregard for APC members.

According to sources, concerns have been raised about the potential consequences for the party in the upcoming Area Councils election if the current situation persists. It has been alleged that the minister’s actions are undermining the political structure of the APC in FCT, as he appears to disregard the party and its leadership.

A group of APC chieftains, headed by convener Comrade Abdulwahab Ekekhide and co-convener David Omobolaji Obaje, have expressed their dissatisfaction with the minister’s lack of engagement with the party’s leadership. Despite multiple attempts to schedule a meeting by sending several letters, the minister has not responded.

It is worth noting that Wike, a member of the PDP, was appointed as the FCT minister by President Tinubu, the leader of the APC.

Ekekhide, however, said the leadership and entire members of the APC family in the FCT, in unison, reject “in very strong terms the continuous lopsided appointments, abandonment and total disregard for the APC in FCT by the minister.”


“We call on Mr. President, who is the Governor-General to call the Minister to order, so that he can retrace his steps and start empowering the party or else, the party will struggle to get 2% for the President in the 2027 Presidential election and may lose the next Area Councils election if the situation remains this way.

“As we all know, the President is the Governor-General of the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), but delegates his powers to a Minister, and today Barr. Nyesom Wike is standing in for the President as Hon. Minister of the FCT,” he added.
