JOS – About 51 political parties and 4 other people from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have revamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) party, and pledged to support the APC gubernatorial candidate, Simon Lalong, to ensure that the second time is a really.
Speaking at the gubernatorial flag-off campaign of Barrister Simon Lalong, Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amechi, asserted that “to address poverty is to address human capacity.”
He accused the PDP of carting away money during its 16 years’ reign, adding that people should work hard to earn their money.
The minister stated that Nigerians should hold PDP accountable for the hardship the people are facing now, and urged them to protect their votes, as he emphasized that that “The election is between the rich and the poor – the PDP for the rich, while APC is for the poor,” and urged the supporters not to sell their votes.
Also speaking, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party, Adams Oshiomole, has alleged that the PDP is deceiving Nigerians over economic challenges being faced by the present administration.
Adams Oshiomole accused the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, who is former vice president, that, he was the person, who led the selling of national assets.
The former governor of Edo state said, if Nigerian electorates allow PDP under Atiku Abubakar take over government from President Muhammdu Buhari, Atiku will sell-off all other national assets of the country.
On his part, the gGovernor Lalong said he has no apology getting sentimentally-attached to President Muhammadu Buhari, because of the fatherly care he has enjoyed from the president since he assumed office as governor.
According to him, “When I came in as governor, I didn’t know what to do until this man came to my rescue. Anything I ask for, he simply says, ‘Go, it is done.’ Why will I not die for this man?”
