- Former governor of Jigawa state, Sule Lamido, has rated APC low in terms of performance
- The APC took over from the PDP in 2015 after ruling the country for 16 years
- Lamido said that most of the projects commissioned by the APC were initiated by the PDP government
Sule Lamido, a former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has no vision.
Daily Trust reports that while speaking at the inauguration of Rumuji, Ibaa, Obelle Isokpo road in Emouha local government area of Rivers state on Monday, March 8, Lamido described the APC as an assemblage of persons moved by anger, envy and malice.
Legit.ng gathered that he said the remodelling of airports, rehabilitation of railway, and reforms that the current administration is boasting of are all initiatives of the PDP.
“When APC came on board, they had no programme. They had no plan; the only agenda they had was to flush out PDP from the government because we were performing; because we were organised because we were committed because we are compassionate and very humane.
“They (APC) can’t think. They have no vision, they have no feeling, they have no compassion, they are there for the power and the power is there tormenting them, because the power has been abused.”
The governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, had earlier explained that his development programme is implemented to create a conducive environment that offers Rivers people more opportunities to actualise their potentials.
Wike said the Rumuji -Ibaa-Obelle -Isiopko road has been used as a campaign tool by politicians who failed to fulfil such promise when elections were over.
“I’m sure, all those from Isiopko, Obele, Ibaa and Rumuji, will look back and reflect on how this road was. Do not forget it easily."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the PDP is considering two options in choosing its presidential candidate in 2023; open contest and zoning.
It was reported that although the 2023 general election is still a little far away, the two main parties in the country, the ruling APC and the PDP, have been occupied with the politics of how and where to choose their presidential flagbearers.
