Defection: APC Chieftain urges youths to exhibit steadfast loyalty


Tunde Giwa-Daramola, a chieftain of the All Progressive Party (APC), has urged youths to remain steadfast in their support for the party in spite of the wave of defections across the country.

Giwa-Daramola, who is vying for the Akoko North-East Federal Constituency in Ondo, said on Wednesday in Lagos that youths should hold on to the party’s political ideology which was centred on moving the nation forward.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that over 15 members of the ruling party in the Senate defected to the People’s Democratic Party, instigating series of defections.

“The country can not afford to go through the spate of looting and indecisive leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) era.

“Our youths must remain focused and hold on to the political ideology of the APC which is targeted at empowering the citizens of the country.

“Youth must also be wary of the fifth columnist in our ranks and avoid violence,” the retired Navy Commander said.

He urged political adventurers masquerading under different names to steer clear of Akoko land.

Giwa-Daramola said the party had over the weekend held a Youth Conference in Akoko to sensitise the youth on the need to get their Permanent Voters Card (PVC).

He advocated for more support for Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu and President Muhammadu Buhari.

    When things fall apart, the center can obviously not hold!

    Calling on youths to remain loyal by the APC failed leaders, is a wrong use of word!

    The youths should rather be reminded that the same APC leaders in 2014/2015 asked NIGERIANS to stone them after two years, if they do not accomplish their election campaign promises to NIGERIANS!

    The NIGERIAN youths should rather stone them outrightly (the APC leaders) for failing NIGERIA and the NIGERIANS foefully after 2015 general election with those unfulfilled campaign promises!

    They should indeed be stoned by all NIGERIANS for causing the NIGERIANS so much pains and serious agony, with the experienced most painful economic hardships and insecurities in the NIGERIA history, which have resulted to consistent loss of the NIGERIANS lives and prosperities/ancestoral lands, through the politically masterminded and sponsored Fulani’s herdsmen deadliest terrorists senseless, heartless and mindless killing activities, accross NIGERIA since July 2015 till date!

    They should really be stoned for being so shameless in their senseless unfulfilled 2014/2015 election campaign promises!

    They should obviously be stoned for causing the unforetold insecurities bitter experiences and the economic hardships in the country since 2015 till date, among other things!

    Among their (the APC leaders’) 2014/2015 election campaign promises, was democractic restructuring of today’s NIGERIA on all-inclusive democractic maturity, transparency and honesty of equal justice and fairness for all the NIGERIANS of all tribes and cultures!

    They indeed failed very woefully in every respect of true democractic governance’s assessment, and they should rightly be stoned out of the NIGERIA’S Government and governance position, just as their leaders, during the 2014/2015, asked the NIGERIANS to do after two years, if they fail to deliver their election campaign promises!
