Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Chairman Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, on Monday stressed that his party will dethrone President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 and improve the wages of workers then.
Sheriff made the remark while congratulating workers on the 2017 Workers’ Day celebration.
In a statement signed by his deputy, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, the former Borno State Governor urged workers to put in more efforts in making Nigeria great.
The former Borno State Governor said the PDP was not just seeking to take over power, but was also looking forward to partnering Labour to emancipate citizens irrespective of religion or tribe.
Sheriff noted that the country needed everyone to be involved in the rebuilding process that would take it to greater heights.
He said, “When we take over power, we shall address minimum wage that will ensure workers’ pay will not only take them home, but will be able to also cater for the families and pay school fees.
“We understand the difficulties the nation is going through at the moment, but a government can only be changed through the ballots.
“2019 will be another opportunity to change power; then, the workers will know what it means to have PDP back in power.”
