The opposition led by Rep. Leo Okuweh Ogor from Delta state alleged that the APC administration has failed to fulfill its campaign promises thereby resulting in the impoverishment of Nigerians who now live in hunger and insecurity.
The PDP legislators made this known after an emergency meeting on Thursday, July 13, during a press briefing to highlight the struggles the party passed through in the course of it’s legal battles that resulted in Markarfi’s victory at the supreme court.
Addressing journalists on behalf of the House, Rep Ogor stated that having failed to improve the country’s situation better than it met it, the APC should therefore see the PDP’s legal victory at the supreme court as a quit notice towards 2019. More details soon…
