Edo 2024: APC has already conceded defeat – Felix Alari


By Johnbosco Agbakwuru

A former Federal Commissioner of Public Complaint Commission, PCC, who dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, last week, Barrister Felix Alari, has said that the September 21 governorship election will serve as a referendum for the Edo people to decide whether or not to continue with the present hardship suffered by Nigerians.

Alari said it was impossible for Edo people to cast their votes a party that has allegedly “pauparised Nigerians and turned many to scavengers in the manner APC had done in the past one decade.”

In a statement on Wednesday, the ex-PCC boss stated that Edo 2024 was an opportunity to tell APC that Nigerians were hungry and tired.

He claimed that a vote for APC would be a vote for the continuation of the present hardship in the land, adding that any vote for the party was an endorsement and approval of more hardship in the state.

According to him, “To me Edo 2024 election is a referendum of a sort to decide in a small scale whether the people are satisfied with present APC government viz a viz the hardship and pains they have brought to the majority Nigerians.

“And I can tell you that Edo people are not in doubt on the choice they have to make in this election. APC certainly is absent from the table.

“And if you must know, a tour through the cities towns and villages of Edo state, will clearly show the mindset of Edo people regarding the upcoming governorship election.

“It is clear to Edo people that APC has nothing to offer and nothing to campaign with in the coming elections except hunger and hardship.

“Go to our streets and villages you hear the people loud and clear saying that this hunger must not be allowed to continue.

“And I must say here that even the APC members knows that they have lost this election.They already have conceded this as a fact,They know that the people will not vote for them because they have nothing to offer and campaign with.

“The only thing you hear them say is that they have the federal might under president Tinubu to manipulate the outcome of the election and truncate the will of Edo people.

“A party that have pauparised Nigerians and turned many to scavengers in the manner APC has done in the almost one decade of their rule cannot be rewarded or patronize with votes by Edo people.

Edo 2024 is one valuable opportunity to tell APC that Nigerians are hungry and tired of their misrule”
