The recent coalition among over 30 political parties in the country, christened Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), aimed at dislodging the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has been described as amalgamation of failed, frustrated and selfish thinking politicians, who are not finding it easy with the anti-corruption crusade of the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
This is the view of the member representing Epe Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Segun Olulade.
Olulade who described the move by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and 38 other parties as bad thinking premised on assumptions that Nigerians are still very gullible and ready to take anything that politicians are ready to serve on the table,
noted that the circumstance that warranted mass exodus to the APC in 2015 was a necessity for the nation as people were tired of the enormous level of corruption and bad governance going on in the land then, and therefore resorted to embrace change offered by the political actors that formed the APC.
The lawmaker in a statement, on Tuesday, noted that it was funny and absurd for politicians to assume they can continue to make Nigerians puns in the game, even when they are serving their own interests, adding that the rots laid down by the PDP government for 16 years are just being gradually cleared by the present administration.
“It is unthinkable that some selfish politicians are trying to take Nigerians back to a past they are already forgetting gradually. No right-thinking person will want to return to that age of decadence. The PDP, which is still fragmented by factions, cannot claim to have anything to offer Nigerians.
“Instead of rebuilding the party for its lost credibility, the selfish politicians are so much in a hurry and desperate to grab power again, thinking that Nigerians are still very gullible and will take anything available,” Olulade said.
He, however, enjoined Nigerians to be patient with the present administration’s economic and moral reforms, stressing that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Nigerians as sustainable growth and development beckons.
He urged them to resist any attempt by greedy and selfish politicians to drag them into yet another era of political garbage.
