Former Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Mr. Levis Aigbogun, has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, as a symbol of hunger and economic recession and urged the People of Edo State to vote out the APC.
“APC in Nigeria now symbolises hunger, sickness, poverty, and high cost of prices for all food items like rice and garri and necessities like petrol, kerosene, and electricity. The party has so far only succeeded in bringing about negative change to Nigeria”.
“If a government wins an election, it has a duty to bring about positive changes in the standard of living of the people but in the last one year of the APC government in Nigeria, Nigerians suffered untold hardships like never before.”
At the same event, The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in the September 28 Edo polls, Pastor Ize-Iyamu, commiserated with 13 youths from Egbeta community in the area now referred to as OVIA 13, who were recently detained on trumped up charges by the state government.
Pastor Ize- Iyamu said, “These youths were sent to jail not because they stole or committed any crimes. They were sent to jail because they were fighting for justice, truth and development of their communities but were charged by the APC government unduly.”
