APC vows to hold public officials accountable

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria

The Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yemi Osibanjo, says his party will hold public office holders to account for their stewardship if voted to lead the federal government.

Mr. Osibanjo said this during a town hall meeting with “ActNow” an NGO, in Abuja on Monday.

According to Mr. Osibanjo, there will be severe consequences against those who engage in looting public treasury.

“We will stamp out corruption; there will be severe consequences for those engaged in looting public treasury.

“The APC will run a transparent government where public officials will be accountable to the people’’, he said.
Mr. Osibanjo said creating jobs remain a core agenda of the party, adding that “the APC will care for the country’s teeming youths from different directions.

“Jobs and creation of employment opportunities have been major issues in the manifesto of the APC.

“Our government will place jobless and poor Nigerians on monthly stipends of N5,000 and N7,000 respectively.

“The idea is to take 2.5 million people out of poverty every year’’, he said.

On the promise of free healthcare for children, Mr. Osibanjo said “we will follow the example of Osun state where such has been done successfully”.

On the country’s security challenge, Mr. Osibanjo said “Buhari will lead the military to the North-East himself to fight the insurgents.

“There will also be a consistent increase in the funding of the military by APC”, Mr. Osibanjo said.

    I write this because of millions of Nigerians who are below 30 and who constitute a significant chunk of our voting population.
    This is the ICT generation that is largely ignorant about the events of the Buhari era (1984-85) and so can be misinformed and misled by needless propaganda. I have sat with many in the under-30 bracket and those slightly above who only have faint recollections of the Buhari era and the level of ignorance about that era is amazing.

    Before being MILITARY Head of State, Buhari had been Governor of one of the Northern States (under Obasanjo’s Military government) as well as Minister for Petroleum. He later served as Chairman of PTF under Abacha.

    Please consider the following unassailable facts:

  • Frank Bassey

    Those promoting Buhari’s greatness without considering the harm he has done to himself by tendering dubious credentials are being rudely dishonest. Those who praise Buhari without reference to the harm he did to innocent Nigerians who fell victim of his numerous human rights abuse, are hypocrites. Buhari is not a material for this generation, no matter how we prop up his suitability.

  • Frank Bassey

    APC must first be held accountable for dubious procurement of Buhari’s fake/forged/manipulated academic credentials!

  • Abdullahi Adamu

    I guess APC should begin by holding Amaechi,Tinubu,Atiku and all the corrupt politicians in their fold who had been funding their activities with proceeds from corruption. Until then,no one will take APC serious.

  • Akinwande Kolawole

    Are you kidding me Osibanjo? How can your imaginary government surrounded by the most corrupt politicians in our recent history hold them responsible? Or are you not aware of the bleeding of Rivers state treasury by Amaechi to fund your destined to fail campaign? How can the so called man of God be lying in such an annoying manner to Nigerians? APC is surely straight from the pit of hell and God won’t allow them win. PDP is the lesser evil.

  • Ademola Arowosaye

    Osibanjo oloriburuku ! You want Tinubu to hold Nigerians hostage the way he held Lagos hostage. Keep fooling yourself. Nobody is fooled by your sweet tongue. GEJ till 2019!

  • Ifeanyi Chukwujekwu

    APC filled with morally depraved fellows can’t do anything meaningful. Nigerians will be in trouble if they mistakenly vote this party. People should study history. Buhari is worst than lucifer!

  • evi

    Go and finish holding your leader and godfather,commander in thief, TINUBU and result forger quota system general,buhari before yu go to the media to vomit rubbish nigerians are not interested in

  • MushinSpeaks

    Examplary leadership; this is what APC offers.

  • excel

    This is what we want to hear leadership by example. APC CHANGE has COME

  • Dayo

    Great. Will they prosecute they corrupt their highly sponsors then? Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos State (involved in the Google Tinubu corruption scandal) governor Rotimi Amaechi (current Governor of Rivers State) Rochas Okorocha (current Governor of Imo State and one of Buhari’s most corrupt sponsors) senators Bukola Saraki and Chris Ngige, the infamous Father Ejike Mbaka… The Buhari Presidential Campaign is deeply and heavily funded by corruption. Rivers people are crying. Their treasury had been looted $13.8 billion.

  • Awarawa

    How many public officials has been held accountable in Lagos state? Has Lagos state governor, Mr. Fasola (SAN) subscribed to the FOI law? How do you you run a transparent govt when everything is done hush-hush? APC janjaweeds are yearning nonsense and making empty promises. Prof should go back to his job as Tinubu’ errand boy after the elections. He and his senile coupist are unelectable.

  • Ademola

    The anti corruption card again, eh? GEJ has introduced germane methods of weeding out the evil in the sector that falls squarely to executive arm. Over 46000 ghost workers have been weeded out of the federal service sector, fertilizer scam has been greatly reduced and fuel importation and distribution has been sanitized. Amnesty international praised his fight against corruption by bringing down our index of corruption from 156 to 134 during his rule. However the message is sinking because the Nigerian crowd listens to both prose and poetry and acts on the last impulse. The APC is the last impulse.

    “The APC will run a transparent government where public officials will be accountable to the people”. Good! They could start by dealing with the man they are trying to elect as President. Buhari claims to be free from corruption, but how could he finance 4 presidential campaigns in a row? Well the $2.8 billion he stole when he was Head of the Minister of Petroleum definitely helped.

  • FadeelahO

    More empty promises from the APC. These ones are quite saucy, since Buhari is well-known to seek the support of men corrupted to the very core to help quench his thirst for power and money. The likes of Rotimi Amaechi and Ahmed Tinubu will be thanked with the Government’s money if Buhari is elected.
