The Young Leaders Forum of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance, APDA YLF, has denounced a prophesy credited to the founder of the Christ Gospel Church of Nigeria, Primate (Dr.) Nathaniel Olorunshola, claiming that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the gubernatorial election in Ekiti State.
The forum’s national spokesman, Chief Olusanya Atofarati, in a telephone interview yesterday, said if there is any party with better chance of winning the forthcoming election, it is APDA.
He also said the time has come for clergymen to start exonerating God in unleashing unrealistic guess work .
“It is politically naive of anyone to think the PDP will win Ekiti governorship election. The bitter truth here is that the PDP is enormously empty. It has lost contact with Ekiti people. Government scholarships and employments have become ‘once upon a time’. Do you expect any local contractor, civil servants, students, pensioners and even the PDP members who are groaning in poverty to hail the PDP-led government? Definitely not,” Atofarati said.
The forum’s spokesman further said, “the lies they sold to Ekiti people have back-fired and destroyed them. So, except those who are now only popular on the pages of the newspapers, they are no longer sellable.
“It is regrettable that today, Ekiti people’s stomachs are now fully ‘infrastructured’ all over the media while grave hunger is the people’s trademark in reality. APDA will take over the government in 2018.”
The group, however, urged the National Executive Council (NEC) of APDA under the chairmanship of Malam Mohammed Shittu Kabir, to intensity efforts in ensuring the holistic distribution of Data Capturing Machines to the 16 Local Government Areas of Ekiti State to ease traffic at the state’s registration centres.
This, according to it, will consequently boost the membership drive of the party across the 171 political wards of the state.
