The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun says the party will kick out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015. When this happens, APC will put the welfare of Nigerians first, he promised, especially employment.
“APC is a party whose time has come. APC is a party with welfarist and people-oriented programmes. But let me say here that youth employment will be priority on our agenda, apart from the fact that we will do everything possible to protect the lives of the Nigerian citizens,” he said during the 60th birthday service held at the Methodist Church, Cathedral for former governor of Ekiti State Engr. Segun Oni.
“Whatever it will take us to end insurgency, we are going to do it. We are not going to steal public money the way the PDP is doing. Former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Musa Yar’ Adua and the present President Goodluck Jonathan expended over 68 billion dollars on power but nothing was realized in terms of power generation,” the APC chair added.
Also speaking, the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South), Oni said APC has been ordained to rule Nigeria in 2015.
“It is not an easy thing for political parties to sacrifice their privileges and come together to form APC. God Himself has ordained the APC to rule in 2015,” Oni remarked.
He also expressed gratitude to Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose for restoring his privileges as a former governor and for attending his birthday thanksgiving service. According to him, it was a “brotherly gesture that has no political strings.”
Dignitaries present at the event include Governor Fayose, Ex-governor Niyi Adebayo, Immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi and wife, Erelu Bisi Fayemi; former Deputy Governors, Modupe Adelabu and Abiodun Aluko; former Acting Governor, Tope Ademiluyi; Speaker, Ekiti House of Assembly, Adewale Omirin; and former Chief of Staff to Oni, Mr Segun Ilori.
