- Taminu Turaki has accused APC members of becoming desperate ahead of 2019 election
- The PDP presidential aspirant said a good number of APC’s current bigwigs including some defectors in their ranks were part and parcel of the past PDP administrations
A presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Taminu Turaki, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has become desperate in their ambition for 2019 election.
Turaki accused the APC of extreme discriminatory approach to the fight against corruption which, he noted, was spearheaded and reinforced by the PDP at the onset of the current democratic dispensation in 1999.
Speaking at the Ondo state PDP secretariat in Akure on Wednesday, August 10, Turaki said that a good number of APC’s current bigwigs including some defectors in their ranks were part and parcel of the past PDP administrations which has been labelled as corrupt by the ruling party.
He said: “When you give your own people unfair advantage in employment as the APC is doing now, or when people or groups are being treated unfairly simply because they do not come from your area or did not vote for you, what is that?”
“The situation in Nigeria today is so serious that we must come together to tighten our nuts to make the Nigerian Project solid.”
He also commended the current PDP leadership led by Prince Uche Secondus for its policy of justice, equity and fairness, traced the genesis of the party’s recent crisis.
