‘We Can’t Leave Government for Thieves’ – Osinbajo Slams PDP at Lagos Rally

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo once again attacked the opposition Peoples Democratic Party as being corrupt during his house-to-house campaign in Ifako-Ijaiye local government area of Lagos state.

According to Osinbajo, corrupt elements in the opposition are desperate to regain power but the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration will not leave for thieves, TheCable writes.

The vice-president blamed the lack of infrastructural development on ‘grand corruption over the PDP’s 16-year reign’, adding that the Buhari-led APC government would focus on jobs for youth, power and providing enough resources to financially empower petty traders and business owners.

“The difference between us and the PDP is that we don’t steal government resources. We use it for the people. We earn less and we spend more on the welfare of people than the previous government,” he said.

“Everybody know Buhari is an honest man. He will not steal public fund. We shall continue to fight corruption so that we can have enough money to provide infrastructure. We have to build on the foundation we have laid.

“The corrupt people will be jailed. That is why the corrupt elements in the opposition are desperate to regain power. We can’t leave government for the thieves.

“You should vote for APC because it is the only party that can do the job. We should not allow PDP to return to power.

Traffic was at standstill as thousands of residents, party faithful and the Arewa community trooped out to receive the vice-president, who talked up APC’s next level project.

“The next level will be much better than today. More power will be available to the people and there will be more infrastructure.

“Too much corruption have retarded our progress. That is why Buhari is fighting corruption. If there is no corruption, there will be money to carry out the developmental projects.

“Buhari will fight for young and old. He will not allow anybody to steal public funds. Government will decentralised power so that there will be adequate and efficient distribution of power in the country. Government will provide adequate electricity supply for the household, artisans, corporate organisations and business enterprise.”
