The call was made by members of the All Progressives Congress( APC) at its summit and the unveiling of its manifesto in Abuja yesterday.
The event which was tagged “Roadmap to a new Nigeria” was designed, according to the party, to bring change to act of governance in the country in order to provide the needed development which will in turn create confidence in the leadership of the country.
In her keynote address, former minister of education and world Bank’s Vice President, Obi Ezekwesili accused politicians of insincerity in their political dealings.
Ezekwesili questioned the negative transition of the country after the initial euphoria of having independence as she observed that Nigeria has been overtaken by countries less endowed while its leaders chose to chart the path of crass under development which she described as “missed opportunity” and “tragic failure”
Speaking at the occasion, the interim national chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande said Nigeria has in the last decade witnessed a decline in the commitment of the leaders of the country to provide jobs and security to the citizens which resulted in the myriads of problems facing the country.
He said the frustration of Nigerians has been growing and is manifesting in many forms.
Former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar said the earlier attempt by the opposition to bring change in the country failed due to their inability to forge a common formidable front to confront the tyranny of the PDP.
He acknowledged that, the PDP has for a long time been using various tactics including sponsoring smaller political parties to undermine the opposition especially during elections.
Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state said the PDP government has allowed corruption to destroy the nation’s infrastructure which led to the collapse of many industries leading to massive unemployment.
Senator Bola Ahmed  Tinubu challenged Nigerians to reflect on issues that have been lingering for more than a decade with no hope in sight for the ruling party to address them.
