We Will Send APC Packing In 2023, Says PDP BoT Chair

A Second Republic senator and Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Walid Jibril, has said the main opposition will send the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) packing in te 2023 general elections.

Addressing reporters on the sideline of a wedding reception of the son of the National President of the National Union of Textiles, Garments and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN), the PDP stalwart noted that with the rate of insecurity in the country and the determination of the party to find solutions to it, many Nigerians would abandon APC.

Also, speaking on the sideline of the commemoration of African Industrialisation Day, as recognised by the United Nations (UN) to re-industrialise Africa, he said: “We need a government that is committed to industrialisation of Nigeria.”

Walid also said when PDP finally produces its presidential candidate and announces the zone that produces him, APC would leave power.

“We in the PDP are very careful and hopeful about achievements and industrial development of Nigeria.

“We met and agreed that the national chairman of our great party should come from the North central. That one has been achieved. Other arrangements are on the way. We are going to decide soon where our presidential candidate will come from.

“The next government, which I hope is going to be the PDP government, will look at the issue of insecurity and find a lasting solution to it and bring back the country to a state of peaceful coexistence and free movement.

“With the present insecurity in the country, every common man and woman knows that Nigeria is in a big problem under the current government. Nigeria is in a state of disarray. But a good political party and a good government can solve this problem of insecurity.

“Let me tell you that traveling by road is now dangerous, traveling by train is also dangerous. And those who have the money travel by air. But the common man cannot travel by air. Anywhere you go today, you are not safe.

“The industrial development in Nigeria is not going well because government policy is not consistent over the years.

“If government policy is consistent, Nigeria wouldn’t have been where it is today. Every policy needs to be consistent for a period of five years running. But changing a policy soon after implementation by successive governments is not good for industrial development of the country.

“If Nigeria must be re-industrialised, government policy on the Manufacturing sector must be consistent to stand the test of time,” he said.
