A Senator reresenting Kaduna Central, Senator Shehu Sanni yesterday in Ibadan said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may not have the moral right to seek for votes from Nigerians in 2019 if herdsmen killing in different part of the country continues.
He said if the party cannot guarantee peace and stability of Nigeria, it has already given up the moral right to seek for Nigerians votes again.
The senator who spoke at the 5th development summit of the Olalekan Olomide platform for development, held at the Press Centre Iyaganku yesterday urged the leadership of the party to urgently intensify effort in the crisis before it is too late.
He however noted that the party has achieved in the area of its anti corruption war and fight against insurgency, but there are areas where the government needs to do more.
"We must honestly admit that there are success achieved by this administration but mindless killings, violence, and bloodsheding in most states of federation is mind budging and concern.
"The crisis is also a threat to the peace and unity of Nigeria. The killings is not acceptable and that is why I said the president must stand up to the reality of our country today. If our party cannot guarantee the peace and stability, we factually have given up our moral right to ask people to vote for us into power again."
Speaking on the role of the southwest played to vote in APC in 2015, the senator urged the region to speak in one voice and have a black and white agreement in demanding for their right from the ruling party.
"The southwest is the heartbeat of the APC and if by chance we suffered a stroke here, that is the end of the story. The region should put it’s house in order and have a written agreement with the ruling party that after supporting the party in 2019, it is the turn of the region. This is important because the political class are not gentlemen and they don’t respect a gentleman agreement."
Earlier, a Professor Emeritus, Professor Oladipo Akinkugbe had urged the political class to consider the masses in their policies and programmes for betterment of the society.
