The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says its South West Presidential Zonal rally scheduled for Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on Thursday, December 6, will accentuate its deepened consultation with leaders of the zone in the consensus to dislodge the failed All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections.
The PDP Presidential campaign Organization (PPCO) says the South West is too sophisticated and educationally exposed to allow certificate forgers, incompetent leaders and fraudulent elements to brazenly continue to sit over their affairs, especially with arrogant show of disdain and official intimidation.
The South West Presidential Zonal rally is therefore another major step in galvanizing the people of the zone in their long-standing aspiration to rally with a new President to liberate their political and economic fortunes from the stranglehold of APC’s oppressive and exploitative oligarchy.
The PPCO notes that the South West zone has already embraced its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, because of his proven capacity, transparency and all-inclusive stance, which the region require to move forward and realize its full potentials that have been retarded by the Muhammadu Buhari incompetent, oppressive, corrupt and divisive administration.
The South West holds a leading position in many critical sectors and will no longer allow a modern day expansionist to continue to sequester and dominate the economy of the people, while making maximum enrichment for himself and a few acolytes at the detriment of majority of the citizenry.
This APC expansionist and his cronies have looted the resources of the South West and made life miserable for the people through forceful territorial occupation, direct stealing of public funds, annexing of public property and income generating institutions; multiple taxation, which proceeds are directed to private purses, as well as harsh financial regulations, which have crippled many businesses, particularly in the Southwest.
The South West people are very resourceful, industrious and creative group and can therefore not thrive under a lack lustre, visionless, inept and corrupt Buhari administration.
Curiously, the administration is now trying to turn the people into beggars by mischievously diverting trillions of naira from the social benefit funds appropriated by the National Assembly while handing out a miserable N10,000 to traders, instead of giving them their due benefits from the scheme.
The people of the South-west has therefore collectively agreed that their liberation time could not have come at a better time than this when the entire nation is rallying behind our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the all-inclusive mission to rescue our nation from the shackles of President Buhari’s misrule and return her to good governance, national cohesion and economic prosperity.
