- Senator Tofowomo has vowed not to join the APC
- The Ondo senator said his dead body cannot even join the ruling party
- Tofowomo disclosed this following allegation that he plans to defect from the PDP
The senator representing Ondo South senatorial district in the 9th Assembly Nicholas Tofowomo has denied reports that he wants to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the senator, there is no truth in the rumour that he wants to leave because of the outcome of the party primary won by Eyitayo Jegede.
He said nothing can make him leave the PDP for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senator Tofowomo who spoke in Ile Oluji, Ondo state, assured his supporters that he would not disappoint the electorates.
”I remain committed to the PDP, and I will never join the ruling APC. I will continue to do my best to fulfil my campaign promises to the good people of Ondo South Senatorial District on the platform of my party, PDP.
”Even if I fulfil my destiny on earth and I’m called to glory years to come, my dead body cannot join the ruling APC,” Tofowomo said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Tofowomo advised Muhammadu Buhari on how the president can secure for himself an everlasting place in the memories of Nigerians.
The senator disclosed this in his anniversary message to Nigerians on the occasion of the country's 59th birthday celebration.
Tofowomo who spoke exclusively to Legit.ng called on Buhari to ensure that he judiciously make use of his second term in office to better the lives of Nigerians especially in the areas of electricity and insecurity.
According to him, this is the only way the president can secure a legacy for himself.
"My advice to President Buhari is that he should be mindful of the fact that this is his last term as the President of Nigeria . If he could tackle insecurity and endemic electricity power supply before he leaves office, it would be an enduring legacy that many Nigerians would be referring to even when he is out of office," he said.
Going further, the senator also lamented the various challenges facing the country: "A country that has been existing as a nation since 1960, that has not been able to proffer solution to the interrupted electricity supply even for a day, a country that can not even guarantee her citizens safety with insecurity everywhere - where the policing arrangement is not effective and of nothing to write home about, a country where unemployment has become an integral part of the society, and poverty has become a consolidated part of the society, has revealed the fact that Nigeria is failed state. Our 59 years celebration of Independence is just a caricature."
Tofowomo also appealed to Nigerians to stop electing wrong people to the position of leadership.
