A former Lawmaker in the Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Hon. Danladi Jatau has advised Nigerians to vote out All Progressives Congress (APC) from power at the center in 2019, saying that the party represent crisis and failure.
Hon. Jatau said, the party is not only full of crisis, but that they have failed the country in addressing issues of national concerns.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Eggonnews in Lafia, the former lawmaker said, “PDP remain the best platform for anyone stand-on for any political positions, because the party is organised, well structured, displined and have a good template.
” PDP is the best party that one can think of in Nigeria, and that is why since I joined PDP in 1998, I have discovered and up to today, I have not seen any political party that is better than PDP.
“From the various Congresses organised by the APC is an attestation that the party has a lot of problems even within the party.
” there are even outcry of injustice, insincerity and unfair treatment with the APC family, and you can hardly see that in PDP.
“In PDP, they have feelings and interest of the people at heart, on like the APC people that are in government.
He added that, “the fact that APC won election at the federal level in 2015 and in some states does not mean they have good programs for the people.
According to Hon. Jatau, “APC has failed this country because, the level of insecurity in this country at the moment is worst than when PDP was in power. The killings going-on on daily basis, they can even pay salary, they place people on percentage, which has never happened during the PDP government either at the state or federal levels. The level of hunger has increased that people hardly eat two sqaure meal a day in this Administration. They succeeding in subjecting everybody to abject poverty in this country.”
The former lawmaker who represented Kokona West between 2011 to 2015 in state Assembly said, his intention to go back to the house was hinged on the popular demands o the people.
He explained that, since he left the assembly, the people of Kokona west have not witnessed good representation or benefited Democratic dividends.
“I expected that the person that took over from me will do well but I discover that nothing was been done in terms of providing basic social facilities to the people”.
“I feel I still need to go back to complete what I intended doing in terms of rural electrification, welfare, renovation of schools, construction of bridge and culverts, construction of new classrooms, and then giving people good drinking water through the sinking of boreholes round his constituency”.
