The Senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District and Chairman of Senate Committee on Local Content, Solomon Adeola, has charged his supporters and other Nigerians desirous of positive development not to return Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to power in 2019.
Addressing his supporters and campaign volunteers at the presentation of 28 branded buses to his coordinators in the 28 local government/local council development areas of Lagos West, in his office at Ikeja, the senator said it is fraudulent to compare the 16 years of PDP rule to less than four years of the All Progressives Congress’ (APC). He said the foundation and construction of the trying
times Nigerians are currently undergoing were laid and built by PDP, through mismanagement of resources and shameful looting.

“It is politically fraudulent to compare APC’s less than four years administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to the unbroken 16 years rule of PDP under different administrations and blame the incumbent government for the trying times in Nigeria.
“The truth is that APC’s administration has been trying to clear the mess of PDP mis-governance, while building necessary infrastructures that were left to decay under PDP,” he said.
Adeola said Nigeria cannot afford to go back to the era of PDP for the sake of our future generations, adding that a PDP administration in 2019 is against the interest of all southerners as it portends power remaining in the North for more time than necessary.
“The policy document of PDP candidates says it all, what they want to do and how long they want to stay in power, contrary to fake promises.
Former vice president and PDP presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku, has said he will sell Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and refineries, and the question to ask is, who will be the buyers? We know his antecedents as the point man for the privatisation in PDP administration in the past, when many national developmental assets were sold off to cronies at giveaway prices,” Adeola said.
