83 million Nigerians poor under PDP, APC, says ANRP
The Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP) has declared that the bad leadership witnessed in the country since 1999 brought about the new global index that over 83 million Nigerians are living below poverty level.
The party blamed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the high level of poverty in the country, as a result of corruption.
Speaking in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, during the party’s congress, the National Chairman, Mr. Tope Fasua, said ANRP was consummated by those he described as ‘revolutionists’ to take over leadership and heal leadership failure brought to the fore by PDP and APC.
He said ANRP’s participation in Ekiti election was to convert the state’s abundant human resources to rejuvenate the economy and make the state the economic hub in Africa.
Describing Ekiti as the county’s knowledge zone, Fasua said: “Ekiti has abundant human resources and it is time for that resources to be converted to make the state centre of innovation to lift our country up.
“If you look at our people, they are desirous of the real change in 2019. What is the essence of government, where 15m Nigerian children are out of schools? This is the highest in the world.”
