We’ll uproot PDP in 2015, say APC leaders


We’ll uproot PDP in 2015, say APC leaders
Lai Mohammed

All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders have said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will be shocked by its “mass rejection by Nigerians” in the 2015 elections.
Speaking in Lagos at the weekend, the party leaders said the PDP’s “imminent defeat” in the Ekiti and Osun governorship polls in June and August would be a foretaste of what awaits the PDP in the 2015 elections.
The APC leaders spoke at a reception rally organised by The Mandate Movement (TMM) in honour of Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola, who got the Daily Independent’s Man of the Year, 2013 Award, at the weekend.
TMM was founded by the APC’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and is led by the APC’s National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire.
Aregbesola said: “With the abysmal performance of PDP governments and the result of our party’s membership registration, it is certain that we will shock and uproot the PDP from all tiers of government in 2015.”
The governor, who is a founding leader of TMM, thanked members from the 57 local councils of Lagos State, who were gathered at the Skypower Playground in Ikeja GRA, for supporting the APC through its transformational stages since 1999.
He said: “I thank you for standing by us all the way. You have seen that more Nigerians, including serving and past governors, as well as members of the National Assembly have been trooping to the APC because the PDP had failed the nation. What this tells us is to put in more effort to flush out the party that has brought so much pain to our people. Coming elections in Ekiti and Osun will surely give the PDP a bitter taste of the people’s resentment for it.”
Aregbesola thanked the organisers of the reception for remaining faithful to the ideals of TMM’s founder.
Banire and another TMM leader Cardinal James Odunmbaku, who is Lagos APC’s deputy chairman, said the turnout at the rally was a warning to the PDP.
Banire said: “This was supposed to be a small reception in honour of Ogbeni Aregbesola, but the crowd gathered here is not only intimidating and overwhelming, but encouraging. We assure you that our party is forming the next government at the federal level and we will never fail you as the PDP has done.”
Also at the reception were APC National Publicity Secretary Alhaji Lai Mohammed; former Lagos State Commissioner for Health Dr. Leke Pitan; Osun State Deputy Governor Mrs. Grace Laoye-Tomori; Aregbesola’s wife, Serifat; National Assembly members from Lagos and Lagos House of Assembly members, among others.
