Agbakoba’s People’s Trust pledges to restore Nigeria
People’s Trust (PT) has promised to restore the country on the path of economic development, if voted into power in the 2019 elections.
In a meeting of the party leaders in Enugu, members of the party in the south east zone agreed that “it is time had come for the real patriots to take over the leadership of Nigeria, to restore hope to the citizenry and save the country from total collapse.
Led by Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), the party, which prides as the third force political movement, said that the citizens had become hopeless and were in dire need of economic and social rejuvenation.
Zonal chairman of the party, Oguejiofor Ezike, said: “We have a presidential candidate who has the capacity and the credibility to lead Nigeria, a man who has been tested and proven to be qualified to deliver, and a man who did it before at the level of his youth and can ably do it again at his middle age.
“Gbenga Hashim (the presidential candidate) is intelligent, honest, transparent, energetic, resourceful and has the ideological potentials to do the work than the old hawks who continue to recycle themselves and family members as if Nigeria is their personal estate.
“The time to emancipate our country from the shame of the past is now. We call on Ndigbo in Nigeria, and in the Diaspora to close ranks with our party, vote for People’s Trust in 2019 and cast the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) out of power.”
According to Ezike, PT has the capacity, credibility and reach with the right population to do the magic beyond the rhetoric of other political parties and politicians who have held Nigeria hostage for decades.
In the meeting were leaders of prominent pro-Igbo organisations and movements, civil society organisations, women associations, students and youth movements, artisans, traders, transporters’ organisations as well as town unions.
