PPC rejects APC, PDP, insists Nigeria needs rebirth
National chairman of Providence Peoples Congress (PPC), Mr. Benson Adetona, has tasked Nigerians on the responsibility of giving birth to a new nation, where equity, fairness and justice prevail, stressing that it was high time the country was delivered from recklessness. He stated this while delivering what he called his state of the nation address in Lagos. Adetona beckoned on Nigerians to set-up right standards by removing the evil of corruption that has perverted the country’s values.
He recalled that the periods between 1958 and 1968 witnessed a season in the country where there was love and harmony, which must be revived at a time like this to save the country from destruction. While urging the electorate not to see other political parties as a burden, Adetona said the two dominant parties – Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) – are the same, adding that they are responsible for the country’s woes.
The PPC chairman, who was flanked by the party’s presidential candidate, Pastor Victor Okhai, said many Nigerians were tired of the two parties. He stated that PPC, as one of the political parties established in 2013, has 30 Senatorial candidates, 70 Reps and 15 governorship candidates on its platform, adding: “Nigerians should discern which of the other political parties truly represents the people and could fight for the good of the country.”
Adetona maintained that Nigeria couldn’t afford to go through the current harrowing experience it is passing through, even as he lamented that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has preoccupied itself with recovering stolen funds while abandoning the welfare of the people.
He stated: “In the interim, we should not allow the attempt to rail us into chaos by highly ambitious and desperate politicians who want to succeed. We want all 1958 to 1965 generation to apply earnestly for Providence People’s Congress membership and contribute to its financing from today.
“No one should go on the street and riot; no one should play into the hands of those before whom our lives does not count. We must love each other now, serve each other, and pursue a nation where freedom, peace, and justice shall reign.
“Issues that have led us to where we are must be reversed in order to get results, which must be different from what we have gotten over the years. Willingness to make sacrifices by putting our resources at the disposal of these reforms is a strong and necessary condition to all who seek the good of the land.
“Receiving and passing information correctly to various constituents is significant for moving ahead progressively. A structure of leadership must be in place that will painstakingly lead this understanding process to a safe harbor where a new beginning can be appropriately engendered.”
