National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. John Oyegun has urged Nigerians not to give the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) the chance to finish off Nigeria, as the party had continuously assaulted the country for the past 16 years.
Speaking at a world press conference in Abuja where he commented on the state of the nation, Oyegun pointed out that President Goodluck Jonathan’s decision to stage a public declaration for his re-election, when he was yet to stop insurgency in the north east nor deliver on his promises when he was seeking election in 2011, showed that he does not have Nigerians at heart.
“Do not give the party that has savaged Nigeria in the last 16 years an opportunity to finally finish off our dear nation. The PDP cannot deliver on any of the same promises it has failed to honour in over a decade and a half in power,” he said.
Oyegun therefore called on Nigerians to disregard Jonathan’s call for re-election. “Two days ago, you heard President Goodluck Jonathan announce himself as the candidate of the PDP and asked Nigerians for another four years as President. You heard a lot of claims, misrepresentations and voodoo statistics, none of which can stand the barest scrutiny.
“You heard excuses for failure to fix basic infrastructure, arrest unprecedented levels of corruption and halt the march of terrorists daily inching nearer all of us. You heard promises that sound familiar because you have heard them all before since his six (6) years of President Jonathan.
“Disregard them!” the APC national chairman said.
