by on February 18, 2018

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, on Saturday called on Nigerians to shun those casting aspersions on President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and the party.

Oyegun made the call at a grand rally to welcome People’s Democratic Party (PDP) members who defected to the APC on Saturday in Lokoja.

The National Chairman said the President was God sent to heal the wounds of Nigerians adding that his administration has  made  tremendous improvement in the socio-economic and political development of the country.

He said that the administration has diversified the Nigerian economy from being oil-dependent to being an agriculture-based.

He said there was an ongoing expansion of the rail network and that power generation has stabilised at 7,000 Megawatts from 3,000 megawatts at the inception of the administration.

“It is only the beginning of good things that are yet to come,” he said.

Oyegun urged Nigerians not to listen to detractors of the President but be patriotic and support him to achieve more and make life worth living for every Nigerians.

“Kogi will be one of the major sponsors on the day President Muhammadu Buhari decides to go for second term; they say we are quarrelling, they say we are fighting, but credible people are trooping into APC,” he added.

He advised Kogi people to support the administration of Gov. Yahaya Bello,  saying the governor has positively affected every facet of the state economy.

“I am happy to be here today. I noticed one of the billboards when I was coming in saying, ‘A New Dawn for Kogi State’.

“Kogi People, I want to congratulate you for having an energetic governor in Yahaya Bello.

“This is a governor that is a good organiser, restless, energetic and full of ideas. I can feel a new energy in Kogi State,” Oyegun said.

Speaking Gov Yahaya Bello urged Buhari to run for a second term in 2019.

“We urge Mr President to run and fly in 2019. Twenty-four APC governors are ready to support you under the leadership of the National Chairman of the party, Mr John Oyegun.”

Bello welcomed PDP members from the three senatorial districts of the state who defected.

He said the APC was where they belonged in the first place adding, “come and sin no more.”

He urged those still in PDP to come back home.

Prof. Stephen Ocheni, Minister of State for Labour and Employment said the crowd was a testimony of the party’s strength in the state.

Mr Edward Onoja, Chief of Staff to the governor said the party started with nine members of the state House of Assembly and 100,000 members,  but now has 19 legislators and  500,000 members.

APC has a new political party has brought nothing but a negative change on the life of an ordinary people who are suppose to feeling the impact economy, social and development in all areas of the country either direct or indirectly 1) economy- the worst stratagy that has ever happen in the history of nig no matter how bad the policy is we have never found our self in an economy recession which has force many company to fold-up,there by resulting to hight cost of material,unemployemenrt,driving away investors etc 2) social-this govt created a wider gap between the people who are suppose to see them self as one entity through unfavourable policy there by people started attacking themself on social media,use of hate speeches etc. 3) unequal development- it was lopsided and mostly favour the northerns while the easterners only appear on the paper e.g construction of rail from home town to abuja,kano etc
