Abuja - Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, has called on Nigerians to vote out all candidates of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) during the forthcoming general election.
The governor, speaking at the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign rally at Iberekodo Primary School, Ibeju Lekki, regretted that the PDP has in the last 16 years, "served the country in reverse."
"Nigerians have elected a bad government that is sponsored by a bad party at the federal level," he said.
The governor recalled that eight years ago when he became Governor of Lagos, the Dollar was exchanging for N115 but noted as at today, the United States currency is exchanging at N225.

He said this had created problems for Nigerian businessmen who depended on importation.
"The most credible thing to be done by all Nigerians is to come out en masse on March 28 and April 11 and reject PDP by voting massively for the candidates of the APC at all levels," Fashola said.
Fashola added that the presence of military men on election dates should not scare voters because even the military men and their families were also affected by the downturn in the Nigerian economy.
