The newly elected Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has said that the electorate will kick out the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 presidential election.
He said this at the national convention of the APC where he was elected as the first national chairman of the party.
“The APC is here! In 2015 Nigerians will finally have the opportunity to kick out a long-ruling party that has, among other things, failed to provide them with stable power supply, failed to provide them with security that will enable them sleep peacefully on their beds at night, failed to provide employment for millions of Nigerian youths, and failed to stem the tide of corruption that is robbing Nigeria’s children of their future,” he said.
Chief Oyegun, who was a former governor of Edo state added further that the country is fed up with the PDP-led government describing it as “visionless and clueless.”
“As if these woes are not enough, our situation has been compounded by the amazingly visionless national leadership that has been inflicted on Nigerians by the People’s Democratic Party since the dawn of our latest democratic dispensation.
“In this past decade and a half of genuine suffering, Nigerians have been frustrated by the fact that there was no alternative national party of comparable strength to rescue them from the clutches of the PDP.
“In 2015, the All Progressives Congress will provide Nigerians with a visionary, dedicated and people-oriented leadership that will liberate the nation from PDP’s rule of poverty and oppression. Under the stewardship of the APC, Nigeria will progress and Nigerians will thrive. This is our sacred pledge to Nigerians tonight,” Oyegun said during his acceptance speech at the convention.
