The National Chairman of All Progressive Congress, APC John Odigie-Oyegun has said his party will hold a funeral ceremony for the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) come the Presidential elections on March 28. Oyegunmade the statement during a rally in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
“We were in the North-west yesterday. You know the North-West is the home base of the in-coming president. South-South is also important to us because it is the home of the out-going president. These zones are crucial. I thank you for your support, courage and resilience. You have survived your oppressors despite all odds. Goodluck Jonathan is our son and brother but he has failed us as a region and Nigeria. So we want to send him on an honourable retirement. I know you will all support the APC in this venture because we must send him home,” the APC Chairman said.
“PDP is confused and disoriented. They have no sense of direction. PDP is down but not out yet. So a lot of work still needs to be done, that is why we are here. Let me also assure you that PDP’s funeral still holds despite the rescheduling of the elections,” he added.
“We will have a good funeral ceremony for PDP come March 28. I want you to promise me that you will all come out and deliver these votes. And that you will be there, ready and prepared to make sure that every vote counts. We are going to deliver the entire South- South to our president in-waiting, General Muhammadu Buhari,” Oyegun assured.
