Why APC Will Defeat PDP In 2015 ––Nasir El-Rufai
>Former FCT Minister, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Sunday boosted that the All Progressives Congress would triumph over the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 general elections, especially if the conduct of the polls would be free and fair.
“You cannot compare the performances of governors Rauf Aregbesola and Babatunde Fashola, for instance, with some of those PDP governors that only know how to get allocations and share. So we can be confident that Nigerians can see the difference between a performing government and one not doing anything.”
El-Rufi, who is the Deputy National Secretary of APC, spoke in Zaria, Kaduna State at an event organised by the Movement for Better Future. He also noted that the PDP have failed Nigerians with fake promises.
He described President Goodluck Jonathan’s government as one that could not tackle the security challenges in the country.
In his words: “I do not think 2015 is around the corner, it is two years from now. However, the APC is capable of kicking the PDP out of power. The PDP has ruled the country, and it has failed to live up to its promises. The PDP government has not provided us with basic outlets of security and prosperity.
“We believe that in a fair and free election, APC is going to defeat the PDP. All we are doing now is to come together, so that we can organise ourselves in order to put in place a system to protect our votes. We are taking this measure knowing that PDP does not win elections. Members of the party know how to write results that they want, and we have to think of a way to protect our votes. That is what we are working on.”
He added, “I think the impact of APC can be gauged from the performance of the states that are already being controlled by the parties that constitute APC.”
