2027 coalition: Rejecting APC won’t solve your problem – Bisi Akande to Nigerians

The pioneer Interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, has told Nigerians it would be disastrous to return the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to power in 2027.

Akande believes Nigerians would be thrown into a more difficult situation should the main opposition party return to power.

The elder statesman was reacting to the proposal by the opposition parties to form a coalition and dislodge the ruling party at the federal level in the next general election.

He said the proposed coalition would not offer Nigerians respite from the current hardship.

Akande said this while speaking to journalists in Ila Orangun, Osun State, on Saturday as part of activities marking his 85th birthday anniversary.

“If PDP was rejected and the same PDP coalesced again and people say, okay we will go back to it, the people will go back to their suffering. PDP was defeated because it had no clue,” he said.

“APC comes, it inherited a very difficult, weak, and dilapidated political and economic foundation called Nigeria. In driving, you are driving and suddenly, maybe something happens in front and you have to turn. Whether you do it by U-turn or you do it another way, there will be screeches.

“Those are the screeches you are seeing now in repairing damages that have been done over the years. We are talking of damages done from 1960 to 2015 and no matter what, Buhari too was not perfect.”
