A Chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo has predicted that the failure of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC ) to deliver value to Nigerians would spell its doom going forward.
He particularly stated that its failure to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians would trigger its rejection at the polls come 2027.
Ajadi who was speaking against the backdrop of the NNPP victory in the two State Assembly elections’ rerun in Kano last Saturday, said NNPP was working very hard and would clinch the Presidency come 2027.
It could be recalled that the NNPP was declared the winner of the rerun elections in two out of the three state constituencies of Kano State last Saturday.
The state constituencies were Kura/Garun Malam and Rimingado/Tofa.
Ajadi, applauding the outcome of the rerun polls, said Nigerians were disappointed with the manner the APC was ruling the country, and were as a result, waiting patiently to show the party the way out come 2027.
He said the APC’s failure to develop Nigeria, now characterised by high levels of corruption, insecurity and economic hardship, would boost the public acceptability of NNPP and ultimately usher her into governance in 2027.
Ajadi urged APC members to prepare for a paradigm shift towards NNPP, saying the party would offer them full accommodation.
“It is not just about political power but addressing fundamental challenges confronting the country, which the APC have not been able to confront frontally”, he said.
Expressing concern over Nigeria’s economy, Ambassador Ajadi labeled it a national embarrassment, adding that only a expert tinkering would properly realign it.
He referenced with soaring cost of living, particularly citing the exorbitant price of a bag of rice at N72,000, describing it as an unparalleled indictment on the ruling party.
Ambassador Ajadi also criticised the proposed N200,000 minimum wage, saying it’s not in consonance with the current economic realities, emphasizing that the socio-economic challenges facing the nation have intensified since the proposal was made.
As far as he is concerned, the proposition remained to play to the gallery just to mobilize public support, adding however that it had backfired.
“In a visionary move set for 2027, NNPP is gearing up to confront a myriad of challenges, ushering in a new era of progress and transformation. Key focuses include combating corruption, fostering national unity amid ethnic tensions, and addressing infrastructure deficiencies.
“The party’s comprehensive plan also targets education reform, security concerns, environmental issues, youth unemployment, healthcare, agricultural reforms, and bridging the digital divide.
“NNPP aims to build a resilient and progressive nation by promoting transparency, inclusivity, and sustainable development”, he stated.
