“We will sit and check ourselves. We must ask ourselves what is right and wrong and what needs to be corrected.”

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, says the party was shocked that it lost the July 16 governorship election in Osun State, despite the fact that its campaign rally attracted a huge crowd.

Adamu who said this in an interview with BBC Hausa on Tuesday stated that the ruling party lost the election because of the internal crisis within the party. But he said the party would correct its mistakes.

He said “We lost the race not because we are incapable but because of the crisis within. We had a massive gathering of supporters a few days before the election in Osogbo. No one could ever anticipate that we would lose the election.”

Adding, he stated, “Osun defeat doesn’t in any way mean that we will lose at the general election. We only lost one state out of the 22 we have; you see, we are still strong.

“We will sit and check ourselves. We must ask ourselves what is right and wrong and what needs to be corrected.”
