The All Progressives Congress (APC) took their campaigns to Plateau State where the National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole flagged of the campaign of Governor Simon Lalong. Governor Lalong is seeking for a re-election in 2019.
During the flag-off, the National Chairman of the APC Adams Oshiomhole asked Nigerians to reject the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar for Presidency in 2019. According to Oshiomhole, Atiku is a business man who intends to sell-off Nigeria.
“The PDP has businessmen as candidate and vice presidential candidate. Atiku said he will sell Nigeria. He has said that he will sell the NNPC if elected president.
“I urged Nigerians not to support the sale of Nigeria by the PDP. You must say no to Atiku. His running mate, Peter Obi, does not have respect for the truth.”
