APC has buried PDP, says Nyako



As the nationwide registration of new members of the All Progressives Congress starts today, Adamawa state governor, Murtala Nyako, has said that with the coming of the APC, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) “has since been buried,”  and called on  Nigerians to come out enmasse and register for the party.
He said it was only through registering for APC that they would make meaningful change in impacting good governance at all levels of administration in the country.
Nyako enjoined people of Adamawa to seize the opportunity of fresh registration as a way of demonstrating their loyalty and support for him and others that dumped PDP, including former vice-president Atiku Abubakar.
He added that the APC registration cards would be their political weapon to cast votes in the forthcoming elections in the country and praised the courage and uprightness of those that had so far defected to the APC, particularly the new defector, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and members of the National Assembly.
He thanked people for solidly standing behind him, and gave the assurance that more dividends of democracy, particularly in terms of Job creation.
Another chieftain of the APC, and former military administrator of Borno and Lagos sates, Gen. Buba Marwa, appealed to members of his constituency not to allow the opportunity provided by the party to elude them by coming out in large numbers to register for the APC.
Marwa urged Nigerians not to be deceived by any individual or group of people stressing that with the influx of new members in the APC, more job opportunities and empowerment would be provided.
In the same vein, former EFCC, Chairman, Malam Nuhu Ribadu, described the high number of Nigerians and lawmakers defecting to the APC, as a positive development for democracy in the country.
Ribadu said dividends of democracy could only be achieved if Nigerians come out and register for the APC during the registration exercise, which, he added, was the only weapon for positive change.
According to him, the nationwide registration exercise of new membership of the APC begins today and is expected to last for five days.
