2023: Saraki Begs Nigerians To Give PDP Second Chance And See The Difference
Former President of Senate, Bukola Saraki, has appealed to Nigerians to give the Peoples Democratic Party another chance to rule the country.
He assured Nigerians that they would see a difference if PDP is given a fresh opportunity.
The PUNCH reports that a former military dictator Muhammadu Buhari defeated incumbent Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election by 2.57 million votes.
The Independent National Electoral Commission said the All Progressives Congress candidate won 15,424,921 votes, or 53.95 percent of the 28,587,564 total valid votes cast.
Jonathan, of PDP, won 12,853,162 – 44.96 per cent.
Saraki spoke while inaugurating the Direct Labour Agency, Road, adjoining streets, and Government Primary School, Junior Staff Quarters, in Asaba, Delta State.
He said, “It gives me great pleasure to be here and to be part of this inauguration. For four years in the Senate, we sat next to each other and I worked very closely with you when we passed the National Health Bill; I am very pleased with your performance here in Delta.
“It is on record that in our party, anytime we have difficult assignments, we come to you because of your competence, integrity, and commitment to duty.
“Our country is passing through some difficulties and I appeal to Nigerians to give PDP the chance again to lead Nigeria and you will see the difference.
“Your administration’s commitment to the growth and development of Asaba capital city is laudable and commendable.”
He asserted that the future of Nigeria would depend on infrastructure as being provided in Delta, adding, “We are proud of what we as PDP government is doing here in Delta”.
On his part, Okowa thanked Saraki for honouring his invitation to inaugurate the projects.
He said that the state government was under pressure to build more public primary and secondary schools to meet the educational demand in the state capital.
He also said that the road construction and rehabilitation of adjoining streets had become necessary “to decongest the heavy traffic along the busy Nnebisi Road’’.
