Chyna Iwanyanwu, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said what Nigerians are witnessing now in the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari is as a result of emotional decision taken by Nigerians to vote APC in 2015.
He said PDP lost the goodwill of Nigerians because the party was disconnected from the people which forced the people to seek change in another part which later become a fallacy.
The PDP chieftain made this known in an interview with Elendu Reports.
He stated: “PDP lost the goodwill of Nigerians, PDP was disconnected from the people, where did the people go? Change. The change we couldn’t get inside, they looked for it outside, it was an emotional decision and what we are seeing is consequence, for any decision based on emotion cannot be right.”
Iwuanyanwu stressed that if APC has provided a credible alternative, it would have been goodbye to PDP.
He added; “my people say if a woman marries two husbands, you will know the one that is better, not when you marry one you start saying this man is a very dangerous man, leave and go and marry another one, then you know the one that is danger and dangerous.
” Nigerians have married two wives, what we are seeing today is not an APC government, Buhari had his own agenda and rode on the platform of APC and got to where he is. So, the greatest enemy of APC is the presidency and its agenda.
“I can tell you that right now in the minds of hungry Nigerians, this would be my worst Christmas, i am sixty(60) years, economically speaking, in the minds and pockets of Nigerians, which is the main thing, economy.
“All this GDP, OPD and others are world bank songs that don’t matter, what matters to the Nigerian citizens is how much is rent, how much is Garri, how much is yam and we have seen that the foreign exchange situation is very bad. What we are seeing is motion without movement and they have admitted it to some extent.
“I am saying if we put our house in order, get a credible leadership from our national convention that is connected to the will of the people, there would be a mass movement of people and once there,” he said.
