The Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has declared that the future of Nigeria rests in the hands of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Speaking in Akure, the state capital, Mimiko said the failure of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to focus on governance has handed the future of the country to the opposition party.
Mimiko said, “The PDP has a bright future in this country, but our actions and inactions will determine the future of our party. We must, therefore, stand for integrity as a party with a history of integrity and progressivism.
“The truth, which we stand for, will vindicate us in the South-West PDP. Governor Ayo Fayose and I are working for the progress of the party in the South-West and we shall continue to do that. The way we stand up for the truth will determine the future of our party.”
He called for the implementation of the 2014 National Conference report, saying only true federalism will see Nigeria through its current situation.
Mimiko stressed that the removal of fuel subsidy will bring further hardship on Nigerians.
“All the challenges confronting us as a nation can be solved only if we practise true federalism,” he said.
