Vote Out APC; A Single Family Has Ruled You For 23 Years – PDP Presidential Candidate, Atiku Tells Lagos Residents

December 5, 2022

Atiku disclosed this on Monday at the PDP’s presidential rally in Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos State.

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has warned the people of Lagos State against returning the ruling All Progressives Congress to power at both the state and federal levels.

Atiku disclosed this on Monday at the PDP’s presidential rally in Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos State.

The former Vice President discredited the APC’s claims of building major infrastructure in the state.

Making reference to Bola Tinubu, Atiku said only “a single family has ruled the state for 23 years.”

He added, “The Federal government built the third mainland bridge, Agege motor road, and other road infrastructures in the state, the APC government is lying to you about developing Lagos. 

“It is time for you to liberate yourself from a family govt in power for over 23 years, by voting Jandor as your governor.”

The PDP flag bearer further emphasized restructuring of the country if elected. 

He said “I will set aside N10billion to empower young men and women. People have asked how I will get the money but if I privatise the Warri refinery and others, I will get the money,” he told the mammoth crowd. 

“If I am voted I will restructure the country. For the past 23 years, you have been voting one family; it is time to liberate yourself and vote Jandor.”

Earlier, governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos, Abdul-Azeez Adediran, told the party’s supporters that he would stop all forms of harassment by the drivers’ union and other miscreants hibernating in motor parks and garages in the state.

He said, “In the last 23 years we haven’t seen anything in Lagos and it is time for us to have a meaningful government in Lagos by voting me.

“Poverty rate has increased since Governor Sanwo-Olu took over despite his claims of investment of N10b in the employment trust fund in Lagos. 

“Funke and I have been contributing our quota and employing people, we pay our taxes but Sanwo-olu and his deputy don’t.

“Let me use this opportunity to tell the people of Lagos that you say the touts are terrorizing you but the govt doesn’t want that stop. As your governor, I will stop all forms of harassment in markets and motor parks and this is our pledge to the people of Lagos,” Jandor said.
