PDP Dividing Nigeria with Religion, says APC

National Chairman of All Progressive Congress, APC, Mr. John Oyegun on Wednesday said, the PDP is using religion to divide the people of Nigeria.

Speaking at the extra-ordinary non elective national convention of the party held at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja, Oyegun said, “In particular, the use of religion to divide our people portends great danger. No nation has ever developed using religion as a divisive or campaign tool. And ours will not be different. The problems we face, be it insecurity, corruption, poverty, lack of infrastructure or economic growth without development, will not be solved by a religionist but by patriotic and competent leadership. What our long-suffering people want to know is who will provide them with security, improved welfare, uninterrupted power supply, jobs, modern health care, world class education and modern infrastructure, just to name a few.”

He further stated that, “Now, the only reason the PDP has resorted to dangerous, divisive politics is because they have nothing to showcase to Nigerians to convince them to return the PDP to power at the centre come next year.”

The convention graced the presence of  Speaker of House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, former Head of State and presidential aspirant, Gen. Mohammdu Buhari, Governor Rabiu Kwamkwaso of Kano State, as well as APC stalwarts from across the country.
