President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday warned Nigerians not to cast any vote for candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections.
Buhari said this during a campaign rally for his re-election in Lokoja, Kogi State capital amidst his statement on what his administration has done.
He said that his administration had done more for the country in three and a half years than what PDP did in its 16-year reign at the federal level.
The president said that since he was sworn in, he had to manage scarce resources to improve the country noting that the party (PDP) wasted the country’s wealth.
He said, “All we’re trying to do is to remind you to think, ‘Where were we in 2015 when we came in (and) where are we now?’ ‘What have we been able to achieve with the resources available to us?’
“To remind you, I have challenged anybody in Nigeria to check in Europe, America and Asia that Nigeria was producing 2.1 million barrels a day at the cost of US$100. So, Nigeria was earning 2,100,000 times US$100 times 16 years.
“Where was that money? The railway was killed. There was no power. They said they spent $16 billion, not naira, on power. Where’s the power?
“I’m warning you, don’t make any mistake of choosing any PDP candidate. What they will try to do is to cover the theft they’ve committed against the nation.”
He further urged Nigerians to attach with his leadership with the reasons that he’ll protect the nation’s wealth and ensure looters return what they’ve stolen.
“We are making the roads, doing the railways, we’re going to bring power and we’re going to secure this country so that we can be able to manage it.
“Please, reflect on what we have done with what we have, compared to what they (PDP) had and the damage they have done to the country,” he told the crowd in a brief speech that lasted under four minutes.
Also present at the rally, the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, warned Nigerians not to allow the PDP gain power as they’ll loot the country dry because Buhari has made them broke.
He said, “The rich men in PDP are broke. They want to come back and collect more money. Don’t let them. If you let them, we’ll die of hunger.
“All the complaints about Buhari is because there’s no free money.”
