The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Rural Development, Oladipupo Adebutu has revealed what will happen to Nigeria if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, takes over the presidency in 2019.
According to him, the issue of herdsmen, the polarization of the citizens along ethnic lines and the calls for the disintegration of Nigeria would be history.
He said this during his tour of Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State, where he held meeting with the PDP party faithful and stakeholders in the area.
Adebutu, who said that Nigerians had never had it so bad in terms of economic hardship, claimed that they were yearning for the return of the PDP in 2019.
He said Nigerians had experienced both the governance by the PDP and the All Progressives Congress and now knew the better party between them, adding that the party had learnt from its past mistakes.
He said the party, both at the national and state levels, had began a concerted effort to reconcile all party chieftains and stakeholders who had one grouse or the other against the party.
He said, “The leaders are already looking into the issues of the aggrieved people. Once our leaders take care of that aspect of it, you will see everything sorted out.
“So, that’s basically the situation now. And even the people are crying out for us to come back and to reorganise, to restrategise and to deliver a better government.
“You will note that over time, we had the situation where various agitations were diminished but as we left power, these agitations have increased and we have seen various tension arise all
“We have seen the polarisation, the issue of herdsmen, agitation for all manner of partitioning of Nigeria. By the grace of God, I am certain that when we come back to the helm of affairs of Nigeria, these agitations will diminish again and we shall have a very peaceful, prosperous nation again”.
