2023: ‘APC fond of blaming citizens for their suffering’ – Saraki
– Says citizens are not happy
By Charly Agwam – Bauchi
Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) for blaming Nigerians for the sufferings the party brought on citizens through bad governance.
Speaking in Bauchi on Monday, Saraki, through the team lead of Bukola Saraki For President Advocacy, Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher said that his team was in Bauchi to ensure success of his principal and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the polls next year.
“Our main reason for coming is to work for our party and to work with delegates in the State. Bauchi State was an APC State that quickly saw what the handwriting on the wall that APC, since 2015 has been a government of deceit. That’s why Bauchi state flipped back to PDP. We are here to tell our people that PDP is ready to take over next year because we are highly organized political party.
“There’s no political party as organized as PDP. The Apc won accidentally in 2015, and because they were not prepared, they have denied all the promises they made. APC has ruined Nigeria, and the worst is that when the citizens are not happy and dare to complain, APC blames them. They blame the victim and tell him that he is the one trying to cause trouble.
“Seven years down the line and they are still blaming PDP but they can not catch up with the level of progress PDP made during those years our party was in power. Today, Nigeria is in a doctrine of necessity moment. Nigeria is in chaos. The PDP that is to take over, can not take over in confusion,” he said.
He further stated that what Nigerians need is competence above regional and religious considerations.
“Nigeria does not want a northern president or a southern president, Nigeria wants a competent president who will unite us, improve the economy and protect us. So we came to give the Bauchi delegates the credentials of our principal, Dr Bukola Saraki.
“We don’t want a nepotistic president, we want a broadminded, Nigeria president who will unite our country and wipe away our tears and make Nigeria a great country,” he added.
