GOVERNOR Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, yesterday, declared that the bad governance exhibited by the All Progressives Congress, APC, would not extend beyond 2023, noting that Nigerians have become tired of the party and will kick it out of power at the polls.
Governor Makinde, who said this during the inauguration of the South-West PDP Zonal Executives, held at the Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, said the redemption of the country has begun from the South-West geopolitical zone.
Makinde, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, said the unity of the PDP will secure victory for the party in the South-West and Nigeria.
His words: “I want to thank you all for the peaceful transfer of power in South-West PDP. I want to also congratulate you, the Chairman and other zonal executive members of the South-West PDP, and pray that you will steer the ship of the party to a fair haven.
”As I said before we started voting at the congress, it is a family affair and our intention was not to defeat ourselves but to bring forward our best materials, which we can use to defeat APC. And I am glad that our best materials for the South-West are seated right before me.
”We need to show the entire country that we are ready to take power back at the centre. I was reading in the newspaper where a national leader of the APC said that the APC will be in power beyond 2023.
