The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshumole has dared the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to deliver the said letter to the United Nations (UN) accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of destroying democracy in Nigeria if they have the guts.
“They wrote a letter to the UN, who will carry it there? Was it not President Olusegun Obasanjo that introduced the politics of ‘do or die’ under the PDP? But we thank God we went through but we did not die” he said.
He spoke while formally receiving former Kano state Governor Ibrahim Shekarau and his teaming supporters who have dumped the PDP for the APC in Kano Sunday evening.
Condemning those who left the APC for PDP the APC national chairman said they left the APC and joined what he described as the ‘trickiticians’ in the PDP.
Oshumole said today the APC is moving to the “Next Level”, never again would this country be governed by opportunists who have in the last 16 years looted the nation’s treasury.
“What they didn’t do in sixteen years cannot be fixed in three and a half years” he declared in retaliation of accusations against the APC government’s low performance by the opposition.
“Today Buhari has good 16 million votes after the primary elections and that is just a tip of the ice bag and Nigeria would never go back to the era of those who looted the nation dry” he said.
Speaking on former governor Shekarau, Oshomole explained that his likes of Shekarau are a good asset to Nigeria that have more to contribute towards development.
He assured the decampees that the APC ruling party would treat them equally as bonafide members which is evident in the Senatorial Candidacy given to Shearau of Kano Central Senatorial zone.
In his address, the Kano state governor Dr Abdullahi Ganduje reiterated that Kano state will give president Muhammadu Buhari more than five million votes in the 2019 elections declaring that “APC is the only party in Kano state”.
He added that very soon the state shall host a reception rally for about 55 members of the Kwankwasiyya Movement that will join the APC adding that Kwankwasiyya is no more.
He declared that the APC has taken away more than 50% of the PDP in Kano as Shekarau joins APC.
In his speech, Shekarau explained that his coming to APC is history repeating itself as in 2014 he had reasons to step aside and today he has even greater reasons to step back to APC.
“we are very proud members of APC” he added.
Also present at the event was the Jigawa state governor Alhaji Muhammadu Badaru and other APC stalwarts in the North West.
