ACTION Democratic Party (ADP) says Nigeria is under serious risk if the All Progressive Congress (APC) government led by President Buhari returns to power in 2019. ADP spokesman, Prince Adelaja Adeoye disclosed this in a statement in Lagos on Sunday. Adeoye added that the citizens should obtain their permanent voters cards to vote out the president in 2019 general election. “The recently released report by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) where over 10 million Nigerians have lost their jobs since 2015 is a deal breaker for a government that promised Nigerians 3 million jobs a year. “We now have an unemployment rate of 18.7% even though some claim that it could be more the party said. This is just in less than 3 years of this APC government and is a clear pointer to the danger that a Buhari return poses. The impact of Buhari’s maladministration is terribly telling on the citizens,” Adelaja noted. He said, “The extension of the tenure of service chiefs was the first in the unfolding of Buhari’s plans and the continuous retention of Aminat Zakari, his relative in INEC is another plot to rig the 2019 polls.” The party, however, said it was battle ready to thwart all the plans of the president but requires the support of well meaning Nigerians.
Adelaja said that ADP was the only party with clean and formidable structures capable of defeating Buhari in 2019. The ADP spokesman, however, urged Buhari “to heed warnings from notable Nigerians who have been prevailing on him not to seek reelection in 2019, as the same citizens who voted for him overwhelmingly in 2015 are now against him, that he should retire peacefully back to his country home in Daura.”
