The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is systematically destroying the foundation laid by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the economic and political growth of Nigeria, these were the words of Raymond Dokpesi, candidate for the office of PDP national chairman.
According to him, the APC administration, has been destroying the fabrics of national growth, unity and cohesion and ‘everybody is now weeping’ because they were deceived accepting the deceptive change mantra.
Dokpesi who spoke while on a campaign visit to the Abia State chapter of the party, Tuesday maintained that contrary to what he described as the vicious propaganda of the APC, a solid foundation for growth was laid by PDP in it’s 16 years in power, maintaining that rather than building on the foundation laid by the PDP, the ruling APC has been busy destroying what it met on ground.
The PDP chairmanship candidate also faulted APC’s war on corruption, insisting that it was fraught with insincerity, double standard and pretence, and cited the controversy surrounding former pension task force boss, Abdulrashid Maina to support his position, which also affect some top govt functionaries.
Dokpesi said that things have become so bad in the nation that APC controlled states ‘are experiencing retardation’ while states run by PDP are doing far better, a pointer which shows that APC could never perform better than PDP.
The chairmanship aspirant said there was need to rebuild, rejuvenate, reconstruct and rebrand the PDP, noting that, ‘Any mistake we make in 2019 not to take PDP back to power will be a total disaster. We have to collectively come together to solve the problems of our party’
