A pressure group in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), PDP Action 2023, has urged Nigerians to reject the All Progressives Congress ( APC) in next year’s general elections.
The group, in a statement by its chairman, Rufus Omeire, said a vote for the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is tantamount to a third term for President Muhammadu Buhari.
It noted that so far, the APC campaign for the next elections is allegedly based on continuity of the policies of the present administration.
“The fulcrum of the APC campaign has been a firm promise to replicate the sterling performance of the APC government of Buhari, if Tinubu happens to win in 2023.Make no mistake about it, a Tinubu presidency would be just another term for Buhari… Tinubu is Buhari and Buhari is Tinubu,” the group stated.
“How can a responsible government leave her children to be out of school for six months with no realistic option of addressing the problems?
“How can the Buhari – Tinubu government fold their hands and watch Nigerians slaughtered on a daily basis.
“How can the APC government allow the Naira to reach N710 to the dollar with no visible rescue attempt?
“Nigerians should say a resounding No to APC in 2023 for these reasons and give the reformed PDP the opportunity to rescue and rebuild the nation from the abyss the APC has plunged Nigeria into,” it said.
