The All Progressives Congress (APC) has insisted that only candidates who passed the Nigerian voters integrity would earn the ciotizens votes in the 2019 elections.
APC Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena in a state he issued Thursday, re-emphasised its position that Nigerian electorate must have the opportunity to choose from candidates that could pass the integrity and anti-corruption test in 2019 general elections.
“The PDP cannot be simplistic and attempt to wish away the issue of the integrity of candidates seeking elections into positions at all levels, particularly as 2019 approaches.
“We reiterate our position that the Nigerian electorate must have that opportunity to choose from candidates that can pass the integrity and anti-corruption test.
“The character of office holders we elect into public offices is important as our very progress and development as a country depends on it”.
He stressed that when the choice was to be made, the electorate had the option of a proven and decent presidential candidate in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari who was putting the people first, warning that a “racketeer” who would readily mortgage the country’s commonwealth to personal coffers and cronies.
