Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, lambasted his former party the All Progressives Congress (APC), noting that Nigerians are more divided under the APC administration than they have been since the end of the civil war.
In his remarks at theconvention, he described the APC as a failed party.
According to him, the party has failed to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians since it became a ruling party in May 2015.
He stated that APC has made life more miserable for Nigerians, adding that PDP’s “unequalled record of growing our economy for the benefit of all” is unrivalled.
Giving a comparative analysis of what both political parties have achieved, Atiku said: “The APC promised us three million new jobs a year. In government the APC has lost three million jobs a year.
“The APC promised us peace and unity. Under the APC, Nigeria is now more divided and acrimonious than at any time since the civil war. The APC promised us restructuring. In office the APC denied restructuring. The APC promised a war on corruption but all they have delivered is a war on the opposition, with handouts for their cronies and handcuffs for their opponents.”
