POLITICS: APC Will Win in All the States in 2015 General Election -- Aregbesola

The Governor of the Osun state Rauf Aregbesola has expressed optimism that the All Progressives Congress, APC,will sweep all the states in Nigeria in the 2015 general elections.

At present, the APC controls 16 of the 36 states of the country.

Aregbesola gave this prediction on Saturday in Lagos at a reception organised in his honour by The Mandate Movement led by a former Lagos Commissioner for Environment, Muiz Banire, and the Oranmiyan Group.

The governor stated that he was confident that Nigerians would no longer vote for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party candidates, especially for the presidency in the next general elections.

The event was to honour Aregbesola as the winner of 2013 Man of The Year award by Daily Independent Newspaper, a statement on Saturday said. Those in attendance included the Deputy Governor of Osun State, Mrs. Grace Olaoye-Tomori; Aregbesola’s wife, Sherifat; National Publicity Secretary, APC, Lai Mohammed; former Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Leke Pitan; Vice-Chairman, Lagos-West APC, Cardinal James Odunmbaku; members of the National Assembly from Lagos and their Lagos State House of Assembly counterparts.

Aregbesola, in his address, said since the country’s independence in 1960, the ruling parties always had power as their slogan, a tradition, he said, had been adopted by the PDP.

He alleged that those elected on the platform of the ruling party had been helping only those in the corridors of power, while abandoned people who voted them into office.

The governor decried the alleged inability of the Federal Government to pay civil servants’ salaries regularly. He said Nigerians had learnt their lessons in the years of PDP’s unfruitful administration.
