The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari, his running mate, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, and the national leader of the party and former Governor of Lagos. State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Osun state governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola yesterday in Akure, the Ondo State capital, flayed the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and urged Nigerians to vote out the party, which they said represents corruption and maladministration in the February general elections.

The APC leaders, who spoke at the party’s Presidential campaign rally in Akure, noted that the PDP government had brought untold hardship to Nigerians.

They assured that the APC would bring about change into the country’s polity if voted for in the February 14 presidential election.

Specifically, Tinubu who addressed the APC supporters at the Democracy park, Akure said the party presented Buhari as its candidate to fight the menace of corruption in the country, stressing that the former Head of State was not too old to rule the country as the PDP currently campaigned.

Tinubu cited some prominent world leaders, including Late Dr Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa who ruled their countries at over 70 years, saying that age had nothing to do with efficiency and leadership.

The APC National Leader recalled that the former Ondo State Governor, Late Chief Adekunle Ajasin ruled the old Ondo state at over 70 years of age.

He noted that the legacies of his administration remained reference points for successive administrations in the state till date.

He said, “leaders who ruled their countries and liberated them ruled at old age. Nelson Mandela ruled South Africa at over 70 years. The man who liberated the United States of America ruled the country at over 70 years, so, if we are presenting Buhari, a 72 year-old man to liberate us in Nigeria, it is not a sin”.

Tinubu who tagged the APC campaign as “common sense revolution” described Buhari as a brilliant, intelligent, brave and honest person who has solution to the mirage of problem confronting the country.

He challenged President Good luck Jonathan to present his score card for the last six years of his administration, just as he asked him to show the refinery he promised to build in Ondo State when he was canvassing for votes four years ago.

He maintained that Nigeria needed a courageous man like Buhari to conquer the country’s terror, adding that the current administration at the center had failed woefully in all sectors of the economy.

Speaking, General Buhari declared that the PDP had killed the country’s economy through corruption and maladministration, promising that his government would restore the hope of the masses and bring about the change that Nigerians desired.

The former Head of State who noted that the PDP’s government promoted corruption, declared that he would end corruption in the country and revive the nation’s economy and create jobs through farming and mining.

National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun and Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state in their separate remarks urged Nigerians to collect their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) and vote out the PDP to bring about good governance and leadership in the country.

Aregbesola noted that Ondo state had been delivered from the captives of the oppressed with their support for the APC.

Dignitaries at the event included three Former Governors of Ekiti, Adeniyi Adebayo, Segun Oni and Kayode Fayemi, Mrs. Jumoke Anifowose nee Ajasin, Victor Olabimtan, Abike Dabiri, Senator Olorunimbe Mamora, Rotimi Akeredolu SAN, Oyewole Fasawe, Niran Sule. Others were Isaac Kekemeke Senator Ajayi Boroffice, Abegunde Ifedayo, Ganny Dauda Henry Kehinde Bello, Dr. Tunji Abayomi, Dr. Paul Akintelure, Adegboyega Adedipe, Ade Adetimehin, Eni Omosule, Tayo Alasoadura, Benson Enikuomehin and Lebi Morayo.

How many men did the APC had in power who is bellow 50. Check most of their Governors, They are very old nd most of them are past Leaders who have failed to allow young souls like us to grow. I say no to BUHARI BECAUSE HE IS ANTI HUMAN AND HE IS AN AUTOCRAT WHO I BELIEVE THIS NATION WILL FAIL AND GO BACKWARD IF HE IS ELECTED PRESIDENT. HE IS ANTI HUMAN. AND AN AUTOCRAT.
