The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has said the the All Progressives Congress, APC, can never fix Nigeria in 3 years.
Oshiomhole berated the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, saying that, never again would Nigeria be ruled by opportunists.
He stated attempts being made by Obasanjo to impose a proxy President on the country in 2019, would never see the light of the day.
Oshiomhole, who spoke during a grand rally at Sani Abacha Stadium, in Kano State, to welcome defectors from the PDP and the Kwankwasiyya Movement to the APC, pointed out that without the support of Obasanjo, Nigerians would vote en-masse for President Buhari.
The APC Chairman, noted that the APC did not promise to re-position Nigeria in 4 years, stressing that what the PDP destroyed in 16 years, could never be fixed in three and a half years by the APC
He said: “Today, those who through a single telephone would make billions of Naira, have regrouped when they ran to Port Harcourt. They have forgotten that what they destroyed in the last 16 years, could not be fixed in just 3 and a half years by APC.
“Today, our opponents in the PDP are crying even before the elections proper. They wrote a letter of complaint to the United Nations; I wonder who will carry the letter for them, forgetting that it was them who introduced a do or die affair politics, during Obasanjo’s tenure. Buhari is highly respected across the globe, so he is bigger than rigging the elections.”
“Never again will this country be governed by opportunists, who have in the last 16 years wasted the nation.”
Earlier at the rally, a former Kano State Governor, Ibrahim Shekarau, stressed that himself and his supporters were happy to return to the APC, predicting that the general elections would be a total victory for the party.
He said: “It is appropriate for me to say that it is a great day for me to address a mammoth crowd of supporters of the APC. I am happy that history is now repeating itself”, noting that, it would be recalled that sometime in 2014, he dumped the party, but now back to the party.
“I have great honour today, as we left the party in 2014, with reasons, as we decided to step aside, and now we have resolved to move back to APC”, he said.
“To this end, Shakarau commended his supporters, who have all moved to APC along with him, adding that: “ I am now proud to be a member of APC, and promise total commitment to the party.
“Come 2019 ,we would join all patriotic members of the party, to work tirelessly for the victory of the party.”
Earlier on the occasion, the incumbent Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, maintained that with Shakarau joining the APC, it had hijacked more than half of the members of the PDP.
He added that the APC is a great party, not only in Nigeria, but also in Africa; noting that, the party would continue to wax stronger, because with the number of highly rated personalities joining the party, along with Mallam Shekarau, there was no more any cog on the path of the party to retain the power.
