Nigeria’s main opposition political party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has said it would waste no time in assenting to the Peace Corps of Nigeria establishment bill if voted into power in the forthcoming general elections in 2019

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, made this known while reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to assent to the Peace Corps establishment bill passed by the national assembly in 2017

In a statement made available to journalists, the PDP said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) lacks youth-driven ideologies and should be voted out in the forthcoming general elections for failing to create any job opportunities for the teeming jobless Nigerians as it promised during the 2015 pre-election campaigns

According Ologbondiyan, “The PDP noted with dismay how a party that promised massive job creation would decline assenting to such a bill meant to create millions of jobs for Nigerians.”

The party stressed that President Buhari’s citing of financial difficulties and insecurity as reasons for rejecting the bill is laughable and a compass that shows how Transparency International (TI) rated the Buhari-led Federal Government as most corrupt, questioning what the APC administration is doing or has done with the so-called billions of naira it allegedly recovered in its witch-hunting fight against corruption.

The party maintained that voting the APC put of power is the only option left for Nigerians, declaring that the APC has nothing tangible to offer Nigerians rather than leading the nation backward.
