All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, (rtd.), on Saturday warned that Nigeria would be in trouble if the Peoples Democratic Party wins the 2015 elections.
Buhari said this while addressing a campaign rally at the Michael Okpara Square in Enugu.
He told the gathering that it would be a mistake if they failed to vote out the PDP.
“If you make a mistake to allow the PDP to rule again for the next four years, we will all be in trouble,” Buhari said.
He stressed the need for people to collect their Permanent Voter Cards in order to ensure that the PDP was voted out.
“What we need from you is to make sure that you get your PVCs,” he said.
Buhari added that “if Nigeria don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria.”
Promising to invest in agriculture, industries and security, the APC presidential candidate distanced Islam from the activities of the Boko Haram sect.
According to him, the insurgency in parts of the North is a case of anarchy and terrorism.
He said, “For anybody to go and kill people in churches, in mosques, in motor parks and shout ‘Allah’, he is saying what he does not believe.
“It is not religion, it is just anarchy, it is just terrorism.”
Buhari promised that he would “restart the coal industry” in Enugu, and also ensure regular power supply in the country.
He said the coal resources in the state would be harnessed for power generation.
Earlier, Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, assured the people that Buhari would stabilise the country, if voted into office.
Okorocha, however, urged Buhari to give the South-East one more state, and also fund the construction of the second Niger Bridge from the federal budget, instead of the current public/private partnership arrangement.
Other projects which Okorocha asked Buhari to execute in the South-East include upgrading the Sam Mbakwe Airport, Owerri, to an international status, and the construction of the Onitsha-Enugu and Aba-Ikot Ekpene roads.
The National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, urged the Igbo to vote for the APC, noting that they (Igbos) had supported the PDP for 16 years without anything to show for it.
