The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State on Monday urged Nigerians to reject the All Progressive Congress (APC) in next year’s elections, saying that the ruling party at the centre has plunged the country into very grim situation.
The PDP described the APC and its leaders as grossly incompetent, wicked and ill-informed, and therefore should be entrusted with power again.
Director of Campaigns of the Delta State PDP Campaign Council, Funkekeme Solomon stated this in Asaba during a press conference to announce the commencement of local government campaigns.
Funkekeme said Nigeria has become the poverty capital of the world, amid unparalleled insecurity that has made Nigeria an insecure place for lives and property as a result of APC’s misrule at the federal level.
“Besides, unemployment, inflation and food insecurity have brought untold hardship on Nigerians, the type we have never seen since the evolution of this nation.
“PDP believes that Nigeria seriously needs to depart from our current experience of electing incompetence and free herself from the APC tragedy that has turned a land flowing with milk and honey into a suffering nation.
“We agree that rather than present candidates for the 2023 elections, APC should be apologizing to Nigerians for the rot it has brought the nation into.
“The clueless party and its officials lack the gumption to understand and appreciate the enormity of the problems they have created and so lack the basis to even field candidates.
“It is against this background that we call on Nigerians not to relent in holding APC to account for the worsening state of affairs in Nigeria, and therefore reject it with their ballots at the polls by voting massively for all the candidates of the PDP across board for the purpose of resetting and rescuing Nigeria from the untidy and chaotic path that APC has brought her,” he said.
Funkekeme also urged Deltans to further concretise their continuing support to PDP with enormous, overwhelming votes for the candidates.
He described the concluded ward to ward campaigns as very successful, adding that the party will continue to engage in issue-based campaigns for the local government tours which begin on December 21.
“The Atiku-Okowa presidential ticket is what Nigeria needs to reset and rescue this nation from the mess that the APC has plunged her into.
“Our governorship ticket of Sheriff Oborevwori and Monday Onyeme is what Delta State needs to build further on the good legacies of the administration of former Governor James Ibori, former Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, and the legacies of the wonderful administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who is also the Vice Presidential candidate of the PDP. This will be done through the M.O.R.E. Agenda,” he added.
