The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked the All Progressives Congress, APC, the President, Muhammadu Buhari and members of the National Assembly elected on the platform of the ruling party to learn from what is going on in the United States of America.
The main opposition party made the call in a statement on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, insisting that Nigeria can only be repositioned when all Nigerians, including workers in the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the judiciary, the legislature, security forces, and faith-based organisations, join hands.
The party said: “It is instructive to state that this is the only way to reposition our nation on the path of good governance, political stability, national cohesion, and economic prosperity,”
“Mr President should take steps to ensure reforms that would strengthen our system, including ending all acts of nepotism in appointments into such sensitive institutions.”
“The patriotism displayed by American Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell, in rejecting the attempt to undermine their nation’s electoral system is a direct call on APC leaders in the National Assembly against the unpatriotic practice of putting narrow partisan interests above the national interest.
“Moreover, the APC must stop being a community of people with common selfish interests and desperation for personal enrichment, who are not ready to stand up for the truth in the face of acts of injustice, deprivation and callousness against the Nigerians people and our constitutional order.
