Former minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and current deputy national secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Malam Nasir el-Rufai and former speaker of the House of Representatives and current deputy national chairman (North) of APC, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari, have launched a two-pronged attack on the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.
While el-Rufai slammed the PDP for giving Nigerians the worst administration in the history of the country, Masari berated the president for failing to deliver on security, power and other social amenities to Nigerians.
The opposition leaders spoke in Kaduna at the distribution of 15 (406) vehicles, 350 motorcycles and 80 freezers by Senator Mohammed Sani Saleh (APC), who represents Kaduna Central Senatorial district at the National Assembly.
According to el-Rufai, who came to national reckoning as a minister under a PDP-led administration, “We want credible election so that we kick out those who have been embezzling our public funds and destroying our institutions. It is mostly a PDP issue because it controls about 24 states in Nigeria and the kind of leadership that it provides is an example for everyone.
“PDP is the biggest problem; the major problem of Nigeria is the toxic party called the PDP. The fact that one is in PDP does not mean that when you recognise that PDP has gone toxic you should not leave; you cannot compare General Muhammadu Buhari with anyone in the PDP.
Also Masari said: “PDP is only afraid of the emergence of APC; they are aware of the strength of the party and certainly, APC is an alternative to PDP. APC will form the next state and national governments in 2015.”
