Nigerians see PDP as a failure - Saraki
Former Governor of Kwara State and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bukola Saraki, yesterday called on Nigerians to vote out the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 elections.
Saraki, who is chairman, Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology, said Nigerians have accepted PDP as a failure saying no Nigerian is happy about the level of development in the country.
Speaking with newsmen in Ilorin, Saraki said, “The simple question every Nigerian should ask himself is if you are happy with the way Nigeria is today; happy about the level government is fighting insecurity, happy about the level government is fighting corruption, and you are happy about the level government is fighting youth unemployment, py then you stay with the PDP.
“But if you mark those as not satisfactory, then you must look for an alternative. e. It is that alternative that we in APC are providing”.
Saraki noted that the APC leadership is not unaware ware of the scepticism of many Nigerians about the APC as a genuine alternative to the ruling ling PDP, saying the party is making ing moves to address the skepticism. sm.
He added: “But I must also be honest to say what Nigerians are saying today is that at ‘yes we have marked the PDP DP as unsatisfactory, but you guys in APC must prove ve to us that you will be e better’. Nigerians have accepted the PDP as a failure but they are asking that you in APC prove to us that you will be better and that is the message g we are taking out throughout the country over the next few weeks.
“Another message we are taking out is that for this democracy to truly be what it should be, we should not be afraid to vote out something we are not satisfied with.”
