Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has called on members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to rescue Nigeria from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor made the call when he received the Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who was on a courtesy visit to the state.
According to Makinde: “The unity, especially that of the governors of our party is paramount and most of the successes we have recorded so far are really because we are together.
“This is a year we have to make serious decisions, because whatever we do and whatever the outcome is, Nigerians will have to live with that for the next four years.
“The past seven years have been a real disaster. If you look at the data, an economy that was growing at the rate of 5 to 6 per cent yearly before then suddenly became poor.
“We went into recession and we thought we were coming out but still went into another recession.
“Meanwhile, the population is also growing at an alarming rate. So, just like our party has been pushing, this is the time to rescue Nigeria. We have a serious role to play in that effort”
