Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, yesterday said that the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, would wrestle power from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the national level come 2015.
Aregbesola, who said this while speaking at the 74th birthday
anniversary and conferment of award of excellence by the state chapter
of the Nigeria Institute of Public Relations, NIPR, on the National
Chairman of the ACN, Chief Bisi Akande in Ila- Orangun, said the party
has formidable political structure to outsmart the ruling party.
The state governor said this is possible because “PDP members are
permanently at war with each other, with the leadership seat as unstable
as the sea. If they are not in court challenging their leaders, members
are formed into factions openly defying their leaders and their party.”
He said the opposition parties have resolved to battle the PDP to a
standstill in the 2015 general elections, adding that “a party in
disarray cannot govern a country like ours.”
Also speaking at the event, former Chairman of the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Nuhu Ribadu, said the honour done
Chief Akande has vindicated him of the insinuations by his critics, who
ventured into media propaganda to attack his administration when he was
the governor of the state.
