In as much as I condemn the maladministration of the All Progressives Congress in totality, however it is very pertinent to state here that the Peoples Democratic Party failed woefully in their sixteen years of reign.
It was during the reign of PDP that Nigeria witnessed an unprecedented oil boom yet what they did was never in any way commensurate to the wealth that accrued to the country at that time.
Admittedly, PDP fared better than APC but we shouldn’t be in a hurry to forget that PDP set the precedence for rigging in Nigeria, and APC is now paying her back in thesame coin. Rigging them out virtually in every election, and intimidating her with Federal character, and power of incumbency.
This disaster Nigeria is bedeviled with currently would have been avoided by the PDP earlier enough but the party blew her opportunity and now she is reaping the pain, and sadness as APC openly ridicules, and steals her mandate.
If PDP had done well especially under Goodluck Jonathan, there wouldn’t have been any need to allow APC into power in the first place.
I am a Southerner, and I wouldn’t hesitate to say that GEJ failed Nigerians so terribly, he had a very good opportunity to get rid of the rot in Nigeria but he was so busy involved in frivolities that he forgot the right things he ought to have done.
Moral lesson: Do not abuse privileges or the opportunities you have today because you might not have them again even if you are fortunate to see tomorrow.
