Abuja (Sundiata Post) -. A candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for Plateau Central Senatorial zone, Amb. Golkuna Gotom has lamented the wanton loss of lives in the country, especially the painful death of worshippers in Owo Ondo State on Sunday.
Gotom said the incessant Killings in Nigeria since the coming of the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC), will cost the party the 2023 general elections.
He said the PDP will take advantage of the inability of the APC to curtail insecurity to size power from them in 2023.
Gotom stated this in Jos, Monday, while condemning the terrorist attack at a Catholic Church in Owo Ondo State.
“PDP will win in 2023 from the State to the national, because people are tired of the senseless bloodbath almost on a daily basis, which the APC has proven to Nigerians that they have lost the will to control.
“The APC swore to an oath to protect lives and properties of its citizens but what we can see today is a breach of the oath since they took over power in 2015.
“Its been seven years of deaths, economic hardship, ASSU strikes, Kidnapping, Banditry, Insurgency and Terrorism, so tell me how Nigerians will elect them into power again?
“Yes, we lost the 2015 and 2019 presidential election but that doesn’t diminish us. Every other party still knows that PDP is a leading party.
“Losing the presidency is something temporary. We should be able to get that position back as long as we are able to get our acts together”, he said.
Gotom urged Nigerians to take the opportunity that the 2023 general election will offer them to elect PDP candidates who believe in the unity of the country and its people.
“Nigerians need somebody like me and also the PDP as the only option that can face the APC squarely in the coming elections, as the PDP is committed to give the country a new direction in which safety of life is guaranteed”, Gotom said.
Recall that some Suspected terrorists, Sunday attacked St Francis Catholic Church in Owo, the headquarters of Owo Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Emerging reports suggest that many worshippers have died and several others have been left injured following the incident at the church which is situated close to the palace of the Olowo of Owo.
