The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has berthed in Kwara to provide a credible and desired challenge to the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) and the dormant People’s Democratic Party, PDP in the state
This was the impression created by the leaders of PRP during a press conference on Saturday in Ilorin at the secretarial of the correspondent chapel.
The party warned that the country was at the verge of being turned to the one-party state should the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led the immediate-past government to be returned to power in the 2019 general election.
The interim chairman of PRP in Kwara State, Professor Mahmood Muhibeedeen Aliyu, who spoke on behalf of the party, reiterated that both APC and PDP operate in same way without ideologies and style of governance allowing politicians to freely cross carpet.
The business education don expressed that the idea of politicians switching from party to party seeking greener pasture especially when a ruling former party suffers defeat in an election is laughable and an act of indiscipline.
Aliyu said the impunity that Nigerians lamented about in PDP Under President Good luck Jonatha was gaining traction in the APC with disobedience to court orders.
He cited the instance of the detained former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and the leader of an Islamic movement, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zaky Zakky who are still being incarcerated despite court orders for their immediate release.
“The possibility of Nigeria becoming a one-party state is imminent. Nigeria is at the verge of becoming a one-party state as the final nail on the coffin will take place if any of the two leading political parties i.e. All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should win election at the centre in the 2019 general election.
“They share the same ideology, they have the same style of ruling (governance) and they even share members. Members move from one party to the other at will and they just want to be rotating the governance of the country between/among themselves. It has been reported severally some expressions made, of recent, by some party (APC) leaders in government to buttress the above point.
He describes APC as a party of deceit and a government of vengeance and compensation in place. Since the coming into power of this government, there has been increase in impunity, corruption legalized for a group of people, selective anti-corruption war, economic recession, increase in arm banditry, kidnapping becoming a thriving business, our health care system in the worst stage.
Aliyu added,”APC is more deadly than PDP. Look at what happened in Edo governorship election; look at the scenario that played itself out at the Ondo governorship election. Look at the way local government elections are being conducted by the various state governments”,
The don, who insisted that Nigeria has not fared better in the hands of the APC and the PDP, said only PRP has what it takes to rescue the country out of the calamitous situation.
He urged Nigerians with patriotic zeal to come together and take the PRP out of the opposition circle and put it in government at the centre, saying it remains the option to navigate the country to the promised land.
Aliyu appealed to the citizens to liberate the country from the crutches of internal colonialism and local imperialism.
