APC Should Be Holding Apology Rallies, Says Utomi
LAGOS – Leader of the Big-Tenth, a political consortium pushing for the election of Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, Prof Pat Utomi yesterday said considering the abysmal and woeful performance of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party ought to be organizing rallies to apologize to Nigerians, rather than grandstanding and positioning itself for another electoral contest.
Utomi, who gave a historical account of how APC’s manifesto was drafted in his Lagos home, bemoaned the dishonesty of APC stalwarts, who rather than adhere to the manifesto document, shamelessly jettisoned it without any form of remorse.
He explained that because of the degradation of governance by the APC and the major opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) support for transactional politics, handing over the reigns of presidential power to any of the two political parties, will definitely be a disaster for Nigeria.
He said: “the Nigerian people have spoken, they have said they are tired of this old order; they will wait for us to release our manifesto then they will copy it, add some things and come out and shout this is our manifesto, but in their heads, they have no plans to implement them.
“They have all the monies they have taken from our treasury, they will use it to make flash of all of these things.I wrote the last one (manifesto) and I am saying to you that they didn’t implement the things we wrote. In fact at point they said who said we promised that, we didn’t promise it, it is some people who wrote it and called it our manifesto, we must hold people accountable.
