PDP and Corruption: Nigeria and APC By Adefenwa Adeshina

Now the APC has been registered and for the first time it seems the ruling party won’t have it easy in the next election which is a good omen for our country and our democracy. Congratulations to Nigeria and Nigerians, at last we’ll be experiencing a vibrant democracy where there is strong competition.

The APC will either make the PDP start performing and show Nigerians why the party deserve to stay beyond the next election or help them out of office come 2015 if they fail to earn our votes in the next general elections which at this moment is most likely.

Corruption is a big issue in Nigeria and unless there is a change of ideology it will bring our economy to a halt one day, corruption is one of the main reasons Nigerians want the PDP out of government because it is a party swimming in corruption and any party that wants to replace the PDP must be very serious about reducing or killing corruption in Nigeria.

The APC is a party of people that have been in position of power in this country before and they sure know what they need to do to curtail the menace of corruption, as we know PDP members are already cross-carpeting to APC which really is something I don’t agree with.

Allowing PDP members join APC is like Pouring water into a bottle of gin, there won’t be any difference until it is tasted, though people might think  it is gin but once tasted, the truth will be known, most PDP members should be facing corruption charges once they are out of office for the frauds they’ve committed while in office, for a party that is aware of that, fighting corruption must be one of the first three things they must do if they succeed in ousting the PDP come 2015, allowing PDP members should not be on the cards for them at all.

So my questions to APC are;

1. If the PDP members that joined APC are guilty of any offense while they were still with PDP, will they be made to answer for it?

2. Won’t allowing PDP members in their midst show how unserious the APC will be about fighting corruption?

3. If APC succeed in 2015, how are we sure, it won’t be the case we had in the past where Anarchy wore too faces, “The creator” in the beginning and the  “Destroyer” in the end?

For the sake of Nigeria and the next generation I hope and pray that the APC knock out PDP come 2015 and also succeed in making Nigeria a less corrupt nation, but will the ambitions of the APC members allow the party live to see 2015? Can they do better? What will the APC do differently? Only time and opportunity can answer these question.
