Tinubu urges voters’ active participation in 2015

A former governor of Lagos State, who is also a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has urged eligible voters in the country to participate fully in next year’s general elections.

Tinubu said this at the inauguration of a new 60-bed specialist hospital, built by the Edo State Government in Ewohinmi, Esan South East Local Government Area of the state.

He said the new hospital was part of the “commonsense development revolution” carried out by the Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole, who is also a member of the APC.

The ex-Lagos governor said, “What you have in Edo State is commonsense development revolution: good security, employment, potable water supply, agriculture, good road infrastructure, vocational job to train and develop your mind and become independent in life. That is common sense development revolution.

“We now have a government that builds hospitals that would save lives, emergency sections that would ensure that accident victims are attended and premature babies are taken care of.

“We (APC) have spent six years now and six years of our arrival with our broom; we have been sweeping the dirt away. We say change from deceit, change from lies, and change from excuses. Today the country is in darkness because of the deception of the PDP.

“The only way you can get it at the federal level is to have the voter card and vote out the Peoples Democratic Party. The 16 years of the PDP did not produce anything. They were here and they did not do roads to reach your communities and they could not give you boreholes.”

Oshiomhole explained that the hospital project was one of the administration’s plan of extending development to rural communities in the state.
