Barely 48 hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo allegedly wooed the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki; and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, to the Social Democratic Party, the party has declared the All Progressives Congress as the common enemy of Nigeria.
The SDP, through its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Alfa Mohammed, called on Nigerians to be unanimous in sending the ruling party out of Aso Rock.
Mohammed told newsmen in Minna on Monday that the pains being experienced by Nigerians are inflicted by the ruling party.
The SDP, therefore, called on all Nigerians to resolve to sack APC from government at all levels so that Nigeria will return to the good old days.
Accordingly, Mohammed said: “The things that made Nigerians to be disillusioned with the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s government are repeating themselves in greater dimension, herdsmen are more dangerous than Boko Haram, epileptic power supply, we now experience widespread poverty.”
Mohammed. who was in Minna to set up some committees to pilot the affairs of the Niger State SDP, said Nigerians should now brace up to send away the common enemy, stressing: “Poverty does not know tribe or religion.
“Life is becoming unbearable for Nigerians.
“Therefore, Nigerians must join the SDP to install a credible government come 2019, because we are now the emerging first force in the political calculation of Nigeria.
“The emerging first force is a mass movement of Nigerians symbolised by the SDP.”
MOhammed said more and more Nigerians cut across ethnic, religious and political divide have been joining the party virtually on daily basis, assuring: “Our doors will not be closed to anybody.”
He confirmed the zoning of some positions within the party hierarchy, adding that a non elective convention will hold hold on April 14.
