A group operating under the aegis of Progressive Yoruba Youths Congress has warned the people of the South West region to be at alert and vote wisely as the 2019 General Elections approach to avert being marginalised.
They accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Of plotting to marginalise the south west region when its wins the election.
Speaking on the alleged plot yesterday in Lagos, the National President of Progressive Yoruba Youths Congress Mr. Kola Salawu emphasised that the Southwest will not only reject the PDP and its candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar but that it will also campaign and vote for President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC.
According to him, the South West will not go back to oblivion again adding that people of the South West must rise up to protect the ongoing progress and support the party that has brought development to the region.
Salawu stated categorically that, “We must also remain politically vigilant. When President Buhari’ s tenure ends in 2023 after he wins the 2109 elections, power will return to the southern part of Nigeria and that is just some four years away.
“We urge all sons and daughters of the South West of Nigeria to be politically awake and choose wisely in the forth-coming elections as the decisions we make will determine if the region will continue to enjoy the true benefits of good governance or we go back to the days of total neglect.” he declared.
Salawu stated that under the last PDP-led federal Government, the South West geo political zone was completely neglected.
