From Ado Abubakar Musa, Jos
The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshomole, has warned that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, will indeed sell Nigeria if voted president.
“Atiku will put Nigeria on sale,” Oshomole cried out.
The APC chairman said this in Jos while flagging off of Simon Lalong’s reelection campaign held at the Rwang Pam stadium.
The occasion had in attendance important personnalities such as the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, The Director General of the Buhari/Osinbajo campaign organization, Rotimi Amaechi, Vice Chairman of the Buhari/Osinbajo campaign organisation for North, George Akume, Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika as well as former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Pauline Tallen.
“PDP under Obasanjo and Atiku spent 16 billion US dollars on power and even with that there is darkness in Nigeria.
Oshomole said there is no reason why Nigerians should vote Atiku Abubakar, saying he will put the country on sale.
“Atiku has said he will put Nigeria on sale. He said he will sale NNPC. You know he presided over the liquidation of the Nigeria Airways and refuse to pay the Airways workers. He wants to do it to NNPC. He wants to sell Nigeria’s crude oil in excess.
“Will Nigerians support anybody to sell Nigeria? If Atiku is voted President will sell Nigeria, “ Oshomole said.
He added that President Buhari is man of integrity and honour and no one in Nigeria can stand his integrity.
He urged the Plateau electorates to support the reelections of President Buhari, and governor Lalong, in the 2019 general elections.
Oshiomhole said Governor Simon Bako Lalong had given practical expression to the meaning of progressives by implementing people oriented policies.
“The fact that he cleared almost one year of salary arrears left by the last PDP government didn’t stop him from building roads, schools, recognising the youths the disabled and bringing peace to the state,” he said.
DG of the Buhari/Osinbajo campaign organization, Rotimi Amaechi during the event stated that the Presidential election was not about Buhari and Atiku but about the PDP being in office for 16 years with nothing to show and comparing it to the less than four years of the APC.
“The PDP left us with a big problem and we are addressing them one after the other. We will govern this country well because this election is between the rich and the poor with PDP being the rich and APC the poor.
“”Don’t allow the thiefs to buy your vote, don’t allow them to steal you votes. Governor Lalong and President Muhammadu Buhari, have done well in Plateau State and Nigeria.You can take away that Lalong, is very a humble person He lives to his promise and so the best to do is to vote him back to power so that he can continue with he is doing, “ he urged the people.
51 political parties endorse Lalong at the occasion.
51 political parties in Plateau State have endorsed Governor Simon Bako Lalong as their governorship candidate in the upcoming general elections.
The chairmen pledged their support to Lalong through the state party chairman of KOWA political party, Salihu Abdullahi who is also the Plateau State Vice Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC).
