APC Can’t Deny Campaign Promises Now – Dominic

A governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Lagos State in the just concluded general elections,  Adegbola  Dominic has described  President  Muhammadu  Buhari’s 100 days in office as grossly disappointing.

Speaking in a chat with Daily Independent on Thursday, Dominic said the expectations of Nigerians when they voted for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 28 presidential election has been cut short owing to Buhari’s dismal performance.

“It has been grossly disappointing. Nigerians expected so much from Buhari based on his campaign promises but we have got so little in return.  It is disappointing; it is something we never expected.  But all hope is not lost. It is just 100 days now. Let us hope he buckles up and appreciate the enormity of the project on his shoulder” .

Speaking on the claim by the APC leadership that the president never promised that he would achieve specific things within his first 100 days in office, and that the statements were made by the party supporters, Dominic said since the party never distanced itself from the promises then, it will be hypocritical for them to do so now.

“That shows really the kind of people in the government and party of APC as whole. It shows they lack integrity. I believe President Buhari is a man of integrity and I expect him to own up to his words. The president is sponsored by the party and the manifesto is the product of the party.  As long as the president did not deny that the statements were made for him then, then we have to hold him responsible for such promises”.

“During the elections, there were posters and banners with the picture of the president announcing these promises. There was no time the president or the APC came out to denounce the posters.

We all voted based on these promises.  On the day of election, it was the party’s image that appeared on the ballot paper. So, whatever the party or its supporters said on behalf of the president, we have to hold the president accountable for it” he said.
