The presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, said on Wednesday that the Peoples Democratic Party had betrayed the nation.


Ribadu said the time had come for the party, which comprised aging people, to give way for the younger generation to move the nation forward.


“The PDP betrayed us; they lied; they did not deliver. In our country, we need change and development. It’s a shame, out of the 5000 top universities in the world, ours is not one of them,” he said.


Ribadu spoke during a dialogue session organised for presidential candidates in the 2011 elections by the Murtala Muhammed Foundation in Abuja.


He said the PDP had shut the door on young people, including the youths within its ranks.


“We cannot talk about change without the people. You have lied. You have failed policies. Give us a chance. We need young people with new and fresh ideas. Let these people give us a chance to do it. We need modern Nigerians like you and me,” he said.


Ribadu rejected insinuations that he would shield his fellow compatriots who were facing allegations of corruption if elected president.


“I am Nuhu Ribadu, I will remain Nuhu Ribadu. It’s too late to change. So, I can assure you, I will do what is right. I will never compromise. I will not allow corruption in my government,” he said.
