The Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola has
explained the difference between his party, the All
Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP).
Fashola made the comments today, February 2nd,
during a meeting between members of the APC and the
organized private sector in Marina, Lagos.
“The manifesto of the APC is designed to address 2015
problems going on to 2019 while PDP has is a 1999
manifesto and that probably explains the disconnect
between our realities and the realities that you hear.
The transformation that has been put forth has headed
south not west,” Fashola said.
“The Naira has weakened, interest rates has come up
and it is for us to chose whether we want four more
years of that and the Naira is essential in a free fall in
an economy that is currently import denominated and it
would only mean that the purchasing power of our
disposable income would continue to reduce,” he added.
“The necessity of now is to halt that free fall. That is
something we cannot vote continuity on. I will not. But
more importantly as the candidate, Gen Buhari, has
said, it is essentially not how much really Nigeria earns,
it is what value we get out of that money,” the
governor continued.
“If we had sold crude oil, our major income earner for
like almost 5-6 years at over a $100 per barrel and all
of us are saying there is pain, do we want to continue
now when there is reduced income with the same team
on the same management capacity. If they couldn’t do
topnotch at $100 per barrel, can we trust them to do
more with less?” he said.
The APC and the PDP are viewed as the major
contenders in the upcoming general elections.
