PDP, a toxic party, says el-Rufai


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been described as a toxic party and the biggest problem of the country.
The former Minster of Federal Capital Territory [FCT], Mallam Nasiru el-Rufai, made this assertion while speaking to the media at the presentation of empowerment materials to All Progressives Congress [APC] members from Kaduna Central Senatorial Zone in Kaduna over the weekend.
According to him, being a member of the PDP, which is the ruling party, and later cane to recognize that the party has gone toxic, is enough for him to leave the party.
“The biggest problem of Nigeria is the toxic party called the PDP. The fact that one is in PDP does not mean that when you recognize that PDP has gone toxic you should not leave. You cannot compare General Buhari with anyone in the PDP; we are offering Nigerians an alternative and fresh approach to governance that is inclusive, honest and fair; that will serve the people and not that which will serve the pockets of a few.”
“We want credible election so that we kick out those who have been embezzling our public funds and destroying our institutions. It is mostly a PDP issue because PDP controls about 24 states in Nigeria and the kind of leadership that it provides is an example for everyone. PDP is the biggest problem and also the fellowship is also another problem of its own”
“I don’t think the north and the south is the issue. What Nigeria needs is a competent President; whether he is from the north or south, it is immaterial to us in APC. We want competent governors that will serve the people; whether blue black, from the moon or south, we are not concerned with that, and I think Nigerians should stop voting people on basis of where they come from. President Jonathan is the most incompetent president in Nigerian history,”el-Rufai said.
Speaking in the same vein, the former Speaker, House of Representative, Hon. Aminu Bello Masari, said PDP is only afraid of the emergence of APC because they are aware of the strength of the party and that certainly, APC is an alternative to PDP. He assured the people that APC will form the next state and national governments come 2015.
“PDP is the unpopular party in Nigeria today, what you see in PDP is government officials. The present administration performance under President Jonathan’s leadership is very disappointing; it has not delivered anything. There is no security, power, and there is nothing you can say is the achievement of the PDP government,” he said.
