Vote Out PDP Before It Kills Nigeria – Buhari Urges Electorate

Published

on

GMB-EDOThe presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, has promised to combat insecurity, corruption and unemployment head long, if elected as president in next month’s presidential election.

Buhari made the pledge on Thursday during the APC presidential rally held at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, the Edo State capital.

Accompanying Buhari were the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun; a national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; the vice presidential candidate of the party, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; the Director-General of the Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation and Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi; Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole; and former governors of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi and Segun Oni.

Others were state party leaders, state executive council members as well as serving national and state legislators.

Buhari explained that APC had decided to focus its attention on the major challenges, in view of the hardship Nigerians were passing through as a result of the “16 years of PDP misrule”.

The APC presidential candidate decried the poor state of infrastructure in various sectors of the economy, which he attributed to the lack of accountability in the management of resources, urging Nigerians to use their votes to bring an end to the leadership of the PDP-led Federal Government.

Buhari added, “When PDP came into power, NEPA or the Power Holding Company of Nigerian, both blessed memory, were producing about 3,000 to 4,000 megawatts. Today, after PDP has expended $20bn, we are producing less than that.

“With this amount of lack of accountability, there is no way Nigeria can survive. So, before they kill Nigeria and kill us, we better vote out the PDP. We hope that on the Election Day, you will come out enough en masse and make sure PDP is constitutionally killed from Nigeria.

He said the APC would strive to make insecurity in the North East and other parts of the country a thing of the past in order to create avenues for meaningful development to thrive.

The former head of state described a situation where over 60 per cent of Nigerian youths were unemployed as “extremely dangerous for the nation-state”, as it had resulted in increase in social vices.

He, however, assured the people that the nation’s agricultural sector would be revitalised, through the provision of soft loans and farm inputs for farmers and encourage agricultural entrepreneurship, which he said would make youths employers of labour and reduce the high level of joblessness in the country.

He said, “APC government, by the will of God and Nigerians, from 30th of May this year, we will make sure that we remove insecurity from the North East to Badagry, from Sokoto to Cross River and from Daura to Port Harcourt. We are going to remove insecurity.

“There is nothing that nothing that we can do without security. So, priority is to firstly secure this country”.

He also promised to improve the education standard in Nigeria through the provision of qualified teachers and adequate equipment and address ecological problems, such as erosion, which he said were ravaging many parts of the country.

“We will try and do those things that are really bothering you, especially erosion. The amount of resources required to control erosion in Edo State alone are enormous, not to talk of the South Eastern states. The APC government will do that; this is an undertaking”, Buhari stated.

In his address, Tinubu described the party’s candidates as men of distinction and integrity and the APC as a party which fulfilled promises, as demonstrated in the states under the leadership of the party.

While describing Buhari as courageous and “a man for the right season”, the APC national leader accused the Federal Government of claiming to have been sabotaged in its fight against insurgency but failed to expose the culprits.

“Any time they want excuse, they talk and make excuses. They cannot even conquer insecurity; there is Boko Haram even in their government. If you know that, why not take them out of government? At least, you know they are in your government”, he said.

In his letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.

Senator Abbo who is a first-term lawmaker was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, the name Senator Elisha Abbo became popular amongst Nigerians last year after he made headlines for slapping an attendant in a sex toy shop for ‘disrespecting’ him.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

Bode George, Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against supporting Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 Presidency.

Bode George made this remark in a statement titled, “The jamboree visit to the Villa: My Birthday Offering.”

The former National Port Authority boss warned Buhari against falling to the antics of those who would ignore the issues of Lagos State to engage in a needless scheming in partisan engagement.

Bode-George also condemned the recent visit of some APC chieftains, Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the State House, Abuja.

The PDP chieftain said: “The visit of Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the seat of power in Abuja is needless, unnecessary, veiled in some poorly hidden agenda that is woven in apparently self-serving ulterior personalised desperation.

“It is easy to discern that the visit is stripped of any patriotic progression, lacking in balanced national leadership, voided of a spirit of sacrifice and developmental vision. The very absence of Bola Tinubu from the jamboree screams to high heavens that the meeting itself is a covert placatory softening of the ground for Tinubu himself. I am pretty certain that in his very absence, Tinubu occupies the centrality of the discussion.

“I will advise Baba Akande who governed Osun State with principled, incorruptible leadership to kindly help us drop off Bola Tinubu at Iragbiji as he makes his way back to Ila-Orangun, rather than engaging in fruitless pleading sessions for a man who is fixated on a warped pipe-dream about governing Nigeria. He should pay restitution for the egregious stripping of the Lagosian coffers.”
