At this point in our nation when the government of today can no longer protect the lives and properties of Nigerians as enshrined in the constitution, Nigerians have no choice than to demand, and effect an immediate change in government through the ballot come 2015.
The Naira has just been devalued. Corruption has reached its peak as stealing is no longer corruption, and the level of unemployment has reach an unimaginable height while our major infrastructures have been left to decay as we now remember them “in blessed memory”. The health care system, the education system, the economy and most importantly the security system have almost collapsed.
Nigeria is a country that lives in an imaginary glory. She is the giant of Africa, but she remains a country that has a large reserve of crude oil but imports refined products. It is unfortunate that as the price of crude oil falls steadily, the price of fuel and other refined products has remained same/high in Nigeria because we sell our crude and buy refined products abroad.
The APC as the only viable alternative to the PDP has positioned itself as a party that parades the best in integrity, prudence, zero corruption and above all those that do not only have an idea on how to turn Nigeria around for good, but those who have proven same in the past as shown in the enviable records of some of the leaders of the All Progressive Congress APC.
It is in view of the above that we urge all the respected presidential aspirants in the APC to shun the temptation of inducing delegates financially. We also urge the delegates to resist any financial inducement from anyone.
We believe that the presidential candidates from APC will be assessed on the basis of their qualifications, previous records and present standing and so anyone who is inducing delegates financially does not represent the change that the APC stands for. We understand that party activities require a lot of logistics and planning and we know that they incur expenses but we advice that the aspirants and delegates draw a clear line between taking care of logistics and financial inducements.
We urge the APC national delegates for the presidential primary to be vigilant and composed as the millions of APC members across Nigeria have entrusted their fate and that of the party in their hand. We wish all the APC presidential aspirants well in their endeavors and we pray that the best among the candidates emerge as the APC presidential flag bearer come December 10thAPC presidential primary.
