country under Jonathan was not as poor as what the nation is currently
He explained that Nigerians were tired of everyday blaming on the previous
administration by the government, saying that all what ordinary citizens
wanted was a government that would feel there pains.

“Unlike government that spent three quarter of its time in UK without
solving Nigerians problem. we’ll never do that for our people, he who
feels it knows it. We’ll touch every life in this country.
“How was Jonathan managing it to the point that when he was leaving it was
one dollar to 180 naira but now it is one dollar to 360 naira.
“How is federal government managing it? It is the management of the economy
that is causing the problem. The Economy team of Jonathan is far better
than Buhari’s team today.

“I am very happy that our party is going up and up everyday, its an indication that by 2019 we will be in Oke mosan, so I feel very happy.
“Am the deputy national chairman of PDP, there is no crack, am in the
position today by the grace of God, whether there is crack or not. There is
only one PDP in Ogun state and that is Sikirulai Ogundele led exco, that
is the party that is recognised by the NWC and INEC.
“People turn out to us because APC has disappointed them, life is
unbearable to people, hardship, suffering, hunger, poverty is everywhere.
Our people have tasted the two parties they now know the best we have never
had it this bad in Nigeria.
“PDP released unendless list of looters, they released their own, we release our own too. Its called 1-1, there is no point in that.
” The bottom line is that they are losing out because numerous problem and
mismanagement of the economy are what we are having in the country today.
“Nigerians have seen the capacity of both parties now, I hope they won’t
get it wrong again, the future of this country is in our hands. Go and get
your PVC and vote APC out.
“Let’s come down to Ogun state, what has Amosun done in my local government
for 8years, what did he do in Ijebu, even in Odogbolu.
“All he’s doing is bridges and bad roads, how will the construction
transform to money. I hope the people of Ogun state now know the different
between” Oselu and Ojelu” .
