“We discovered that we still have a gap that should be filled, hence we have gathered various APC groups to hear their challenges and plans in order for us to move together for the success of our party.
“The engagement is aimed at working out modalities on how best way our groups we mobilise themselves to penetrate deep into grassroots with the gospel of APC manifestoes,” he said.
