APC Already Eyeing Next Term, Despite Ongoing Hardship in Nigeria


The current administration, barely a year into its tenure, is already facing criticism and challenges from various quarters. Nigerians are experiencing increasing hardship and a rise in prices of essential goods, making life unbearable for many. Despite this, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) seems to be hinting at a return to power in the next election cycle.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has lamented the worsening conditions in the country, echoing the sentiments of many citizens. Additionally, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), along with the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), has issued a stern warning to the Federal Government over its failure to address these pressing issues.

In the midst of this turmoil, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, has expressed confidence in his political camp’s ability to defeat any opposition in the 2027 elections. Despite facing a face-off with his successor in Rivers State, Siminalayi Fubara, Wike believes that the leadership of both the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State is united, making them unbeatable.

Wike’s assertion raises eyebrows, especially considering the recent political crisis in Rivers State stemming from his alleged attempts to impose decisions on the current administration. Despite these challenges, Wike remains optimistic about his camp’s chances in the upcoming elections, citing the unity of leadership in both major parties in the state.

The confidence displayed by Wike and the APC hints at a political landscape where power dynamics and alliances are constantly shifting. As Nigerians grapple with the daily realities of hardship and insecurity, the political class seems to be already positioning itself for the next electoral battle, raising questions about their priorities and commitment to addressing the pressing issues facing the country.
