National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to makes credible polls the sole legacy of his administration.
Prince Secondus, who made the call during the flag off of the Ondo state PDP governorship election, which, scheduled for October 10, 2020, called on the electorates to vote out the ruling APC.
“Let us tell the federal government of APC that the only thing left for Nigeria is for Buhari to conduct free and fair election in Nigeria because the economy has collapsed, security has collapsed and they are swimming in corruption and Nigeria is on a keg of gun powder, waiting to explode. The only way out is for Buhari to conduct free and fair election in Edo and Ondo states so that Nigeria can remember him”.
Also in his speech, Sokoto state governor, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, described the ruling party as colossal failure, having failed to deliver all its electoral promises to the people.
He said, “Now we expect you the good people of Ondo state, to consolidate and bring victory to PDP, by coming out on the 10th of October, 2020 and vote massively for out candidate, gentle man per excellence, Eyitayo Jegede.
“They said that they are going to fight corruption, you all know the situation in Nigeria today. They said they are going to ensure the security of Nigerian. Are we secured now? Are we secured at all?
“What about the economy. At this time of COVID-19, they have increased the suffering of Nigerians. Instead of giving us palliatives, they are adding to the sufferings if Nigerians by increasing fuel prices, by increasing electricity tariff. The timing is very wrong.
“I assure you that this election in Ondo state is the commencement of the work in progress by the PDP, for the restructuring of Nigeria. Let’s go out and elect Eyitayo Jegede for Ondo state and Godwi Obaseki for Edo state”.
