Nigerians are tired of APC, waiting for PDP – Diri


Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State said on Saturday that Nigerians were fed up with the All Progressives Congress and could not wait to vote in the Peoples Democratic Party in 2023.

Diri also boasted that governors elected on the platform of the PDP across the country were the best performing governors in the country.

He spoke at the Mahmud Ribadu Square in Jimeta, Yola North Local Government Area of Adamawa State as the chairman of the PDP National Electoral Committee for the conduct of the state congress of the party.

A statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Daniel Alabrah, quoted the governor as saying the PDP was poised to take over power at the centre in 2023.

He said, “Nigerians are tired of the APC and are waiting for the PDP to take over. I assure you that come 2023, PDP will take over the presidency of our country.

“I have been reading about the first flyover in the North-East but yesterday I drove on it. We are pleased as a party that the governor of Adamawa State is performing and doing well. The PDP governors from the north to the south are the best performing in Nigeria.”

The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar were among the delegates that voted at the congress which produced a legal practitioner, Tahir Shehu, as the state chairman of the party.

He urged party members to remain steadfast and united to ensure PDP returns to power in the next general elections.

Diri described Fintiri as one of the “shining lights” in the party, saying he is making remarkable developmental imprints on Adamawa.

He also commended the Independent National Electoral Commission whose state Resident Electoral Commissioner and his team were present to observe the exercise.
