What is change?

06 January 2015, 20:36 Merife Obinna

Some weeks back, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) accused the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) of being PDP's "waste basket".

When I saw the statement on its official Facebook Page, I laughed and thought PDP was just being humorous, but then, I sat down and researched.

I found out that PDP definitely had a point. Let me prove it. Almost all of the opposition Governorship candidates are from the PDP. They left and swapped party when things weren't favouring them anymore or when they wanted to satisfy their political selfishness.

Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, the current Speaker, Federal House of Representatives, was formerly of the PDP before he "betrayed" them and cross carpeted to the APC.

Suddenly, he became a "progressive". Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Aminu Bello Masari and Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, APC Governorship candidants of Kebbi, Kastina and Kano respectively, were all formerly of the PDP. Even in the South.

Okey Ezea, its candidate for the Government House, Enugu, was a PDP "dump".

My question remains, what change does these men have to offer? Please, someone shouldn't say anything about "repentance" here! APC formula remains,"Everyone in PDP is a devil. We are angels".

Our politicians should stop this politics of acrimony and focus on democracy dividends. Nigerians are still waiting to see "how" not "what" they would do, if elected.
