Vice-President Namadi Sambo said on Monday that the PDP-led Federal Government would construct additional 20,000km of tarred roads in the next four years, if re-elected on Feb. 14.
Sambo, who stated this at the PDP presidential rally in Ilorin, said the government had successfully constructed about 20,000 km of tarred roads across the country in the past four years.
According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has successfully transformed the nation’s economy, making it the best in Africa.
“Today, the opposition are talking about the economy, the economy already Mr President has transformed it. Today, Nigeria is the best economy in the African continent. It is not just by accident but the policies that Mr President has put in place and the actions he has taken.
“When we came in, the power generation in Nigeria was about 2,000 megawatts. Today, I’m happy to inform you that we are generating over 4,500 megawatts in this country and we are moving forward. Mr President has transformed the power sector.
“We have privatised the generation and distribution of power in Nigeria successfully, one of the best privatisation that has been carried out all over the world”.
According to Sambo, the ongoing transformation of the economy is not by accident but through well-designed strategies by the PDP-led administration in the country.
He, therefore, charged the people of Kwara to come out en mass and vote for Jonathan/Sambo ticket as well as other PDP candidates in the Feb. 14 and Feb. 28 general elections.
“The reform of the economy of Nigeria, as I said, was not by accident, it is by the experience, it is by planning and development that the President put in place under the Peoples Democratic Party.
“I’m therefore, calling on all of us here to send the message that Mr President is transforming Nigeria, is moving the economy of Nigeria already forward and that all of us from Feb. 14, 2015, we should vote for Mr President, vote for our senators and vote for our members of the House of Representatives.
“And the Feb. 28, we should vote for our governor and our members of the State Houses of Assembly”.
In his remark, Senate President David Mark said the electorate in the North Central zone of the country had already decided to vote for the Jonathan/Sambo ticket in the Feb. 14 presidential election.
Mark, who described the losing of Nasarawa to the opposition party in 2011 as “a mistake” on the part of the PDP, assured that Kwara and Nasarawa states would be brought back to the PDP in Feb. 28 governorship election.
“We want to say very emphatically in the North Central zone that we will vote massively for PDP, we will vote for you as President of this country.
“I want to assure you Mr President that the North Central zone will give the highest votes in 2015.
“We are going to vote massively for all our governors”.

“Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.
Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.
The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own.
my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue
we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price
I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you
While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”
Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
