The candidate of the Providence Peoples Congress in next month’s presidential poll, Mr Victor Okhai, on Saturday vowed to defeat both candidates of the All Progressives Congress, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate Atiku Abubakar in the election.
Okhai at a campaign rally in Ibadan lamented that the democracy in the country since 1999 had not made an impact on the people.
According to him, the PPC has what it takes to win the presidential and governorship elections in many states.
Okhai urged the people to stand for their rights and punish both the APC and the PDP during the general elections “because they have failed to utilise the resources God deposited in our land for the good and greater advantage of the majority”.
The governorship candidate of the party in Oyo State, Mr. Taiwo Otegbeye, a former Commissioner for Information in the state, said the PPC was the party to beat, having signed a pact with the people to evolve a workable blueprint to bail them out of poverty.
Otegbeye promised to revamp the state’s economy through agriculture and reposition education, health and other sectors.
The party’s National Chairman, Akintola Aduroja, said,”The PPC is a party for all Nigerians. The people leading us since 1999 have not been able to deliver on their electoral promises. Instead, they keep giving us intangible things as democratic dividends and we continue to clap for them. Unemployment pervades our land. We must fight for our rights and ensure that the PPC wins so that we can jointly rebuild this country for the benefit of all.”
