The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has revealed the reason for the construction of Christian Chapel within the premises of the party national secretariat in Abuja.
Ganduje, while fielding questions from journalists after inspecting the construction explained that the chapel will afford Christians a place of worship within the premises.
The party chieftain reiterates that the initiative was aimed at allowing adherents of the Christian faith the opportunity to worship like their Muslim counterparts at the national secretariat of the party, according to The Guardian.
He emphasized that his resolve to enhance the APC winning streaks also pledged to enhance the performance of journalists assigned to cover the APC.
He said, “The ongoing renovation and the new innovation are for the progress of the party and the nation. Before, there was no church.. Nobody went to church on the premises, but now, we have a new church.
“We have shops to avoid street hawking around the building. And we have concrete drainage. The media centre in terms of its outlook and equipment. I have not seen any symbol of modern gadgets. We are not in analogue period.
“But, I think what I have seen here is analogue. But, our media people are not analogue. So, let us see the media centre as a digital platform. I want you to discuss this with my chief of staff on it.
“I want a media centre such that from here you can talk to media houses sometimes live.”
Continuing, he noted: “Our blueprint is to increase the number of legislators that we have in the country. The number of governors that we have in the country abd by implications the number of state house of assemblies. That is why we said APC will be active throughout the year.
“In our tradition, usually political parties as institutions they are only active during the electioneering. But in developed democracies, political parties as an institution are active because they are not only limited to election, recruitment of membership.
“It is a two-way traffic. It gives the progress of the government to people and also gives recommendations on its manifestos. That is how the government is assessed. That is why Renewed Hope is achieved.”
