Chairman of Steering Committee of the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of deceiving Nigerians with his promise of restructuring during the 2015 election.
Oyinlola, who dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2017 alongside other bigwigs over alleged marginalization, called on Nigerians to vote massively for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in order to bring back prosperity, peace and a stable economy.
He spoke at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential rally in Osogbo, the Osun state capital on Tuesday.
Oyintola, a former governor Osun State, said when they were campaigning for Buhari in 2015, restructuring was one of the major campaign slogan.
He said, “We have to be conscious of the fact that we have been deceived. When Buhari was coming to government, he promised and told us that one of his cardinal focus was restructuring.
“When he came to power, he told us that he does not know or understand the meaning of restructuring. That is a clean, clear deceit.
“He promised us security. When he came in, we had problem with Boko Haram in Borno state, but today there is hardly any part of the country where security challenges are not present.
“It has come to a point where a governor is asking for emergency rule. In fact the governor of Katsina state lamented that he is overwhelmed with security situation.
“If Buhari cannot provide security in his own state, do you think he would provide it in Osun state?
“That is why I’m telling you that we should think and vote the man who knew restructuring from the beginning. That is Abubakar Atiku.”
