National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and chieftain of the pan Yoruba socio cultural organization, Afenifere, Chief Olu Falae has warned the people of Ondo state not to vote for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
Falae, a former Secretary to the Government of Federation who hails from Akure, said the people of the state should avoid APC members if they want corruption out of the country.
Speaking at a rally organized by the party in Akure, Falae alleged that the leaders of the APC were corrupt, adding that the APC leaders worked against the people of the south west when the speaker’s position was zoned to the region.
According to him “Bola Tinubu and his party by their activities worked against the interest of the South West when the position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives was zoned to the region.”
He disclosed that the leaders of the APC have no interest of the country at heart, stressing that all the blue print proposed by its presidential candidate, General Buhari was just “an acted script full of political propaganda.”
He noted that, “if many of the recommendations of the National confab like decentralization of railways control, seaport establishment and control of mineral resources are implemented, the South West and Ondo
State in particular would benefit immensely.”While urging SDP members to support its candidates in the forthcoming general election, Falae said a lot of employment would be created for the teeming unemployed youths in the country.
Also speaking at the rally, the SDP Gubernatorial candidate in Oyo State, Mr Seyi Makinde said the people of the South West would benefit a lot if SDP candidates are voted into government. Makinde, who narrated the history of how the southwest was well governed by the Yoruba leaders in the first, second and third republic, maintained that a wheel of progress would be witnessed if the people of the region support SDP.
