The Presidential candidate of Action Democratic Party (ADP), Yabagi Yusuf Sani, on Tuesday, cautioned Nigerians against voting for both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the forthcoming election, saying both parties have failed Nigerians.
Sani who stated this in Akure, Ondo state capital, during his visit to the leader of the pan Yoruba socio popular group, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, described both political parties as failed alternatives and not the best for the country.
He said ” the two political parties have failed the nation and Nigerians as a whole. These two political parties and their leaders have no new thing to offer Nigerians and cannot take us to the promised land. ”
He noted that the APC led administration and President Muhammadu Buhari is not well-equipped to manage the economy of the nation, saying “the President lacked the capacity to lead this nation, nothing has changed in the last four years.”

According to him, Nigeria is endowed with natural resources that can rank the nation among the leading country of the world but observed that the country is blessed with leaders who lacked the capacity to turn the nation around.
He stated that “the national oil and gas sector should adequately take care of other sectors, like health, education and even economy and there is no reason this country should be poor.
“The experience we have in the oil and gas sector is a terrible one and all indices shown that activities in the sector have nosedived, we should be today ranked among the developed country and not developing country.
“But the most disorganised sector today is oil and gas and this sector can be used to develop other sector and reposition this country because we have no reason to be poor.”
He said the country was getting worse under the APC government, insisting that the present administration had failed in all sectors, while Nigerians did not have any reason to be poor, but said ADP government would fight poverty to a standstill.
He promised to turn the economy of the country around if else ted as the president of the country in the forthcoming election with a pledge to look into the restructuring of the country.
He stressed the need for the restructuring of the country saying this is the only way out of the myriads of challenges confronting the country.
“We have materials that can give what Nigerians demand. We must work hard to bequeath to our younger generation a functioning nation, a system that is functioning and attending to the needs of the common man.
“We cannot go back to Egypt because after 20 years we are still battling with the same set of problems.”
The Afenifere leader, Chief Fasonranti, commended the ADP presidential candidate for embracing restructuring saying this would give credit to his campaign.
Fasoranti said, ” as you have said oil should be a blessing to us and not a curse but the task before you is enormous and we wish you the best in your quest to reposition the country.”
