APC MAKING MOVES, RIVALS MUST START SHOWING THEIR HAND AND ITS TIME FOR PROTESTERS TO RELAX.
APC has made so many positive moves it is hard find PDP or any of their rivals just now. The problem for APC is the waiting time needed for their plans to bear fruit. It doesn't help that the public is restless due to high prices of basic commodities and the cost of change, but be assured change is coming and APC has that look about it. Take for
example Edo State ran by Governor Godwin Obaseki. The reports, from all members of the Edo diaspora who have visited Edo state recently are overwhelmingly great that only a fool would argue we are not going in the right direction. APC has its faults but it’s time for us to be patient. We must be patient and ask the opposition parties to show us what they are offering instead of protesting to every APC action.
