According to an elated Saraki, who danced to the acclaimed of the cheering crowd, APC led government had deceived Nigerians with fake promises and propaganda in 2019, noting that the ruling government has no capacity to tackle problems of poverty, insecurity and poor economic management.

His words; “Four years ago, we gathered here to explain reasons to support PDP and Atiku. We said you should vote PDP, if you don’t want hunger and insecurity to continue, but they deceived our people with fake promises about “Next Level.” The people are suffering today due to growing insecurity and poverty across the country. I am happy that Atiku is here again. He has the capacity to rescue Nigeria and reset the country to the path of recovery. My people, do not allow them to deceive you again. Vote PDP in all elections from Presidential, National Assembly, Governorship and House of Assembly come 2023. We must get it right this time around.

“I hear the current administration in Kwara talk about 16 years of rot. Which rot? Our administration built the Presidential lodge, International Aviation College, Kwara State University and other impactful projects, including the Metropolitan Square we are using today. They believe in propaganda but Kwarans can see the difference now. Vote Atiku for a better Nigeria and Vote Yaman to return PDP to power in Kwara State.”
