- ADC national chairman, Chief Ralph Nwosu, says if APC is re-elected the party will kill the practice of democracy in Nigeria
- Nwosu notes that it is only ADC that can save Nigeria from total collapse beyond 2019
Chief Ralph Nwosu, the national chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), said if the All Progressive Congress (APC) is re-elected to power in 2019 general elections the party will kill the practice of democracy in Nigeria, Nigeria Tribune reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that Nwosu, said with the hight of insecurity across the country, it is only ADC that has the magic wand to save Nigeria from total collapse beyond 2019.
The ADC chairman while speaking at a meeting of south south zonal leaders of the party in Yenagoa, said with the selective fight against corruption the government led by APC has adopted, he is not in doubt that Nigeria’s democracy is under threat and needs urgent attention at reviving.
Nwosu alleged that ADC has uncovered a plot by APC to offer crude oil blocs and huge sums of money to top in a bid to stop them from giving the party the support it needs to unseat the incumbent president in the 2019 Presidential election.
He said: “Though the past few days have been challenging since the party was adopted for the rescue Nigeria project because the ruling party, APC, is becoming more desperate than it ever was to stop us from rescuing Nigerians.
“When ADC was adopted by former president Olusegun Obasanjo, they have been seeking ways to collect our only elected state assembly member, Hon. Gabriel Ogbara, in Bayelsa. They have tried to use Oil wells and blocs to lure him to APC, but he has since declined.
“All these was to give an excuse that ADC doesn’t have an elected official and should be scrapped. They want us to deny Obasanjo. They tried to bribe me with 10million dollars, they know my integrity, but I turned their offer down.”
Nwosu also noted with dismay the manner APC has damaged the image of Nigeria through poor trade agreement signed with countries like China.
“Whenever I go to China, Singapore or other Asian countries, their nationals see us as a nation seeking aid and loans. They now say that our country has become lazy to the extent that we depend on China and other Asian Nations to do everything for us,” he said.
