Gov Gaidam Blames PDP For Nigeria’s Stunted Growth

The Yobe State governor, Ibrahim Gaidam, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of misrule which is now responsible for the slow development of the country, saying that his All Progressive Party, APC, has come as a solution to restore hope.

Gaidam was speaking on Saturday during his endorsement by the state chapter of the APC as the sole candidate of the party for governorship in 2015 election, in pursuance of his second term bid.

He said, “The PDP is now on the verge of collapse. It is losing its grip as manifested in the loss of many of its supporters nationwide. Here in Yobe state, we have received thousands of former PDP supporters into the fold of the APC. Today, we are receiving yet another high profile group which has decided to leave the PDP for APC. I welcome those who have joined us today and assure them of a level playing field.”

He assured the defectors that in the days to come they would not suffer any disadvantage in their aspirations to run for elective positions in their new party, and urged them to work with the APC in rooting out the PDP from power in the country at large.

The governor said Nigerians are yearning for change as they are fed up with the politics of deceit, falsehood and empty promises by the PDP and that the APC must bring that desired change to ensure the total emancipation of the masses from corrupt tendencies, deprivation, ignorance, insecurity and poverty, among others.
