"We have laid a foundation for the effort at rebuilding the party." he said. APC promised restructuring, it has denied promising restructuring. Under APC, Nigeria lost three million jobs.

"The APC promised a war on corruption but all they have delivered is a war on the opposition, with handouts for their cronies and handcuffs for their opponents".

"Look, you have to look at the achievements of this president in these few years". We made mistakes, we are human beings but we put our nation first. APC is blaming previous government, instead of solving problems. "The PDP is the party that will restructure Nigeria into a modern nation with working institutions".
