The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Vice Chairman Northwest Zone,  Alhaji Salihu Lukman, has said that the Zone is the heartbeat of winning election in Nigeria.

Alhaji Lukman disclosed this on Wednesday during a press briefing at the Party’s zonal office in Kaduna.

According to him, APC had been able to win the past presidential election largely because of the massive support from the Northwest.

He explained that, “Nobody can win presidential election in Nigeria without the support of the Northwest and we are determined to win the forthcoming election.”

Lukman also disclosed that the party had inaugurated a Field Operation Committee as part of its strategy to ensuring victory come 2023.

He said the Committee comprised of Publicity, Organising, Women, Youths, Legal and Persons with Disabilities Committee.

He further said each of the Committees, drawn from the six states in the zone; Zamfara, Kebbi, Sokoto, Katsina, Kano, Jigawa and Kaduna states and would be headed by their respective State Deputy Governors.

“They are saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that the Zones are working with the States and would liase with their respective Publicity Secretaries.

“They will identify major priorities perticularly in mobilising the people to acquire their Permanent Voter Card (PVC).

“We want to do everything possible to win the election and that is the reason why we have to mobilise people to get to get their PVCs,” Lukman reiterated.

He, then, mentioned that the Committees would meet on monthly basis to have an overview of their function.
