Stop complaining, vote out Buhari, APC – Turaki tells Nigerians


Taminu Turaki, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, has urged Nigerians to translate their anger and frustration against the All Progressives Congress (APC) to massive votes against the party in 2019.

Turaki made the plea in Bauchi on Sunday while addressing PDP executive committees, delegates, elders and other members from states in the North-East zone.

He said: “There is so much poverty, hunger, insecurity, harassment, joblessness and disaffection in the land due to APC’s mis-governance. But, there is light at the end of the dark tunnel.”

Turaki promised that if he succeeds in being the president, he would come up with workable policies and appoint tested and respected economic team to revamp the economy.

He stressed that it was still possible to attain Nigeria’s pre-APC government rating, when the country’s economy was leading in Africa and named the third fastest-growing in the world after China and Qatar.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) added also that compliance with the rule of law and respect for the other arms of government will be the hallmark of his administration.

Turaki, ex-chairman, Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North East, further recalled that the Jonathan government successfully pushed the Boko Haram insurgency to the fringes of the country, which made it possible to hold the 2015 elections in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.

He said the committee compiled a comprehensive report that would have ensured a lasting solution to security challenges across the country, but that the APC government dumped the recommendations.

Turaki promised to revisit the report and also come up with a more effective and efficient security architecture to address the problems.
