Era of looting gone for good – APC chieftain
From Jimoh Ahmed, Ikare-Akoko
Nigeria could not afford to go back to the era of looting if the country must get out of the present economic dungeon.
A stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Tunde Giwa Daramola stated this while speaking with newsmen in Ikare Akoko.
Giwa who was reacting to the defection of some top APC members to the opposition parties said defection could be healthy to democracy only if it does not seek to serve the selfish interest of the defectors.
The APC chieftain observed that majority of politicians of today now leave their parties when they cannot achieve their selfish gains.
According to him, they no longer work for the interest of those who give them the mandate to represent them.
In the meantime, Tunde Giwa has called on youths in the country to rally round President Muhamadu Buhari to return Nigeria to a better country which can stand on its own among the comity of nations.
He posited that youths have a great role to play in the change agenda of the president and as such should not be taken away by the sweet talks of some politicians who have nothing for the country, but to further plunge it into the sea of economic disaster.
Equally, the APC chieftain has called on the people of Ondo State to give their total support to the state governor, Arakurin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in his efforts to move the state forward.
In assuring the people of the delivery of the dividends of democracy, Giwa said Governor Akeredolu will surely fulfil his electioneering promises.
Meanwhile he has attributed the recent victory of Dr Kayode Fayemi in the recently concluded gubernatorial election in Ekiti State as a testimony to the fact that the APC is so popular with the people.
According to him, APC still remains the party to beat in the country, even in the face of the defection of some bigwigs of the party.
