Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who is the immediate past governor of Ekiti State has noted that former President Goodluck Jonathan’s refusal to apologise to Nigerians for the way he ran the country in six years means that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has not learnt its lessons.
He also said it means that the PDP is only seeking to return to power in 2019 so as to resume looting the treasury as done in the past.
Fayemi, who is the serving Minister of Mines and Steel Development, also urged Nigerians not to measure President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance with the current fuel scarcity.
He stated this while addressing reporters in his home town of Isan Ekiti in the Oye Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
He said, “What the PDP wants to come back to do is stealing. The option for Nigerians in 2019 is not to return to the old age of criminalisation and brigandage by not voting for the PDP, because there is nothing to convince Nigerians that they have changed with the shenanigans that characterised their national convention and the poor performances by their governors.
“Up till now, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and his henchmen have not apologised about how they ran the country aground. So, there is nothing to suggest that the PDP remains a credible alternative to the APC in 2019.
“What (fuel scarcity) we are witnessing is just a normal curve in the life of any administration. We will get over it and move on, but largely the President has not disappointed Nigerians.”
