LP chieftain charges Buhari on governance
THE Labour Party (LP) candidate for the Warri North Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, Oristebemigho Eyeoyibo, has congratulated the President-elect, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) and charged him to concentrate more on stable supply of electricity.
He also urged Buhari to fight corruption and insecurity out-rightly saying these are “the fundamental issues affecting the people now.”
Eyeoyibo who made the call while speaking with The Guardian in Lagos recently, said “ Nigeria will move forward if there is stable electricity and the issues of corruption, poverty and unemployment are effectively managed”.
The LP candidate reiterated that APC should stick to the party’s manifestoes as promised the electorates and lay emphasis on core areas like education, massive housing scheme, social security, unemployment and healthcare services.
He also urged Buhari to provide credible transparent and accountable leadership in all the sensitive sectors so as to deliver more dividends of democracy to Nigerians adding, “with this new and fresh government, people who were tired of the unrealistic and unfulfilled promises of the ruling PDP would heave a sigh of relief.”
Eyeoyibo also advised the incoming APC government to take advantage of town-hall meetings to meet political party leaders to interact with the grassroots and tell them of the party policies and programme.
According to him, “It is also an opportunity to talk to leaders and het feedback from the people so that the government can keep track of its activities.”
He however described the results of the election in his constituency as a sham because of what he called the manipulation by the ruling party adding that the LP has approached the election petition tribunal to seek redress.
His words: “We therefore want the entire world to know that the results as announced by INEC reflect predetermined, manipulated and fictitious figures forged by the ruling party. The LP has filed a petition to the tribunal over the outcome of the election.”
