Nigerians have become poorer under APC- Eddy Olafeso
The Former Vice Chairman and Zonal Liaison Desk Officer, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West, Dr. Eddy Olafeso, has urged Nigerians not to miss the opportunity of dislodging the corrupt ruling All Progressives Congress-led government by voting the party out come Saturday presidential election.
Speaking with journalists on Wednesday in Akure, the Ondo state capital on their readiness to win the forthcoming general elections in the country, Olafeso said Nigerians have become poorer since the APC government led by Muhammadu Buhari assumed office.
Olafeso, who lamented the bad state of the economy, which he said has had negative effect on the cost of living and price of goods across the country, however, said the APC had no solution to the woes bedevilling the country hence the need to vote for the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
He said, “We must dislodge APC in this country, APC is unknown to modern politics. APC have done enough for us to buried them and I know for sure they will be buried on Saturday. Our country must be united, we are going to do very well in the South-West.
“Having gone through all the faces, it is for us to consulate, consolidate and work for our candidate, we will work so hard to defeat APC come February 25th presidential election in this country.”
Also speaking on the ambition of the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Part, Peter Obi, the PDP chieftain said “I found it very interesting that he has been able to come this far and what we are actually clamouring is that may the best candidate wins come Saturday.
“Politics requires a lot of structure, peoples, money and others. Our party contribute money from the units to the states, now who does that for Labour Party? And by Saturday we will know who owns the land. It is not about social media opinion poll.
“So, his ambition will not affect the vote of Atiku at all.
“For us in the South-West, how can we ignored the fact that the headquarters of APC is Lagos state, but our strategies is to win across the country, our own desire is to do very well on Saturday, we are confident that we will win in Oyo, Osun, Ogun will do far better, in Ondo we will pull our weight despite the challenges we have here. So I’m confident that we are going to do very well in the South-West.”
Olafeso, who also spoke on the Integrity Group (G-5), led by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State said, “it would have been better if all of us are on the same page. But it is never late to retrace your journey. It is the same thing they promoted they are rejecting now but tomorrow belongs to God.
“I think there must be a love of carma behind the G-5, these people started party the constitution of the part party they brought in Ayu in the last convention and suddenly they want Ayu out. The question is that are they fair with this? The mindlessness of their quest will end in total disaster for them.”
“Atiku is a financial member of the PDP, he made everything possible that the party capture the entire Nigeria and he is a founding father of the part.”
