Nigeria Will Go Bankrupt, If Jonathan Is Re-elected For Another Four Years, Says Ambode

Ambode-FasholaGovernorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has said Nigeria will go bankrupt in four years if President Goodluck Jonathan is re-elected for a second term.

According to Agbaje, since the ruling Peoples Democratic Party had ruined the nation’s economy the option left for Nigerians was to vote en masse for the APC, stressing that victory for the party would ensure freedom.

He spoke on Thursday at the campaign rally of the party in Alimosho Local Government Area of the state.

He said, “Victory for the PDP in Saturday’s election will lead to further bankruptcy of the nation’s economy. Vote en masse for the APC. The victory for the party will ensure freedom and liberate the country.

“If we fail to vote and PDP is still in government, Nigeria will go bankrupt in the next four years. This election is election of freedom to liberate Nigerians from the shackles of poverty and misrule”.

Ambode advised the present generation to start thinking of, not only themselves, but also of their children and generations to come, adding that if Nigerians fail to vote out the present administration at the federal level, they have ruined the future of their children.

He said, “Parents should vote out the PDP for the future of their children. It is not a vote of tribal, religious or ethnic sentiments, we want to vote because of the progress of Nigeria.

“If your children ask for what you have done for the progress of Nigeria, you should be able to tell them how you voted out retrogressive government and replaced it with a progressive one; we must vote the APC at the federal level”.

The campaign rally was attended by the Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, his deputy, Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire and members of the Akinwunmi Ambode Committee of Friends, among others.

Meanwhile, chairman of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) in the state, Alhaji Musa Mohammed, led members of the association to declare their support for Ambode.

This is just as a leader of the Alliance for Democracy, Dr. Abimbola Ojora, and some members of the Unity Party of Nigeria, led by its state Chairman, Tunde Osibajo, defected to the APC.

The RTEAN boss, Mohammed, said the association took the decision based on the good performance of the APC-led government in the state.

    Yes, TAN said it is time to liberate Lagos but from what, who? Lagosians, pls listen very attentively! We really need to liberate Lagos from Ibos who have invaded the city and took over every aspect of our lives. They control major markets and override us. We gave them shelters, provided them with conducive environment to prosper in their dubious businesses. It is high time we deal with these people and get Lagos back. Yorubas are alabarus in these markets. Yoruba ronu o! Vote Buhari/Ambode for Lagos liberation.
