PDP Will Get Proper ‘beating’ In 2019 – APC

PDP Will Get Proper ‘beating’ In 2019 – APC
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rotimi Fasakin, has mocked the strategy review committee headed by Prof. Jerry Gana of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) over claims of overtaking the APC in 2019 general elections.

Fasakin during a chat with the media in Lagos said the opposition party needs to be schooled by the APC on how to formulate winning strategies that can unseat a ruling party.

He added that the Buhari-led administration had done well in galvanizing the Nigerian army, which used to scamper into safety before the Boko Haram insurgents under Jonathan, into a strong fighting force in Africa.

He said: “When I heard PDP talk about strategizing for 2019, there was something in me that leapt for joy that they are coming in for a good shellacking come 2019. You know why? They need to learn one or two things from us in terms of strategy. How did we do in in unseating a party that had been in power for 16 years.

“This is a party that left so much mess. The mess they left has not cleared. We are still battling in clearing the mess.

“On the performance of the President Buhari, there are many indices with which you will judge the legacies of this administration vis-à-vis this party.

“Nigerians will be asking themselves that about two years ago, the Nigerian soldiers that they knew under Jonathan, under PDP – the last administration were scampering for safety anytime they saw Boko Haram.. They were jumping into other jurisdiction. Now in two years, that same army has now been galvanized into a strong fighting force that is a pride to you and I.

“A few weeks ago, our soldiers showed up in Gambia, and the President who had shown some recalcitrance bolted through the back door, because our soldiers had arrived. Now the national pride is back, some people are saying that they want to take us back to 24 months ago.

“Talking of the economy, anybody that knows the Nigerian economy will know that Nigerian economy is import dependent, when any import-dependent country devalues its currency is looking for hyper inflation.

“Which organ of government; which institution is directly in-charge of the monetary policies in the country? It's the Central Bank, Who appointed the last CBN governor? Who appointed the current CBN governor?

“Let's understand clearly that there are specific processes for getting out of our economic quagmire. Anybody that understands clearly, knows that we had never had an economy anyway. An economy in which, 80, 85, 90 percent of the money circulating in the economy is traceable to government. Is that an economy?

“That was why when government removed its money from banks, Banks were retrenching. An economy that is not based on medium and small scale enterprise – those are the real engine of growth for any economy, and it is the CBN that should help us to promote that. Any you know that this President cannot just wake up and remove any CBN governor. He need two-thirds majority of the Senate to do that.

“The change APC promised Nigerians is a process, and it starts with the leadership. When you have a leadership that is transparent, it cascades down to the followers. We need to give the APC some time to bring the change we promised. The kind of impunity we used to have under PDP is no longer obtainable.

“I reiterate that in 2019, PDP will get proper shellacking.”

Fasakin, however urged Nigerians to exercise more patience in expecting the change the APC promised Nigerians.
