‘Only God and PDP will save this country in 2019’– Okupe



APC, PDP are big trucks ravaged by old age, misuse, Jonathan’s ex-aide Okupe says

Doyin Okupe, ex-aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, has said only God and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will save Nigeria in 2019.

Speaking on Arise TV on Friday, Okupe claimed Nigeria is in perilous times, asking Nigerians not to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said Aisha Buhari, the wife of the president had made it clear to Nigerians that her husband is not in charge.

“The presidency is totally affected, they are unconcerned and totally disconnected from the suffering of the masses, the president does not know about many things going on,” Okupe said.

“His wife came out on television and said the president is not in charge. Mrs. Buhari said two men are the people that are running the country.

“Mrs. Buhari came to the Nigerian public said you guys have to fight for yourselves because right now, my husband has lost the grip on this administration, and some two people, who we do not know, are the ones running the economy.

“Is that what we want to vote for? The same government that you don’t know who will run the administration? A country of 200 million people with so many youths?

“We are in dangerous and perilous times, and only God and PDP will save this country in 2019”.

Okupe said the government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has brought indecency into Nigeria, and has continuously peddled lies.

He said the Buhari admin has not created 12 million jobs as claimed, stating that Akinwumi Adesina, minister of agriculture under Jonathan, had over 10 million farmers on his mobile wallet database.

Okupe said Buhari may have added two million farmers to what Adesina had done, only to come and be celebrating 12 million jobs that they did not create.

He also said his son’s support for Buhari is based on his education and gullibility.
