The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said that the party has no reason not to deliver on its campaign promises to the people.
Osiomhole said that now that the party has an overwhelming majority in the arms of the National Assembly, they can no longer say that they were being blocked by the parliament.
He stated this before the inauguration of the 9th National Assembly on Tuesday, in Abuja.
He said; ”Nigerians with their eyes open gave the APC the executive, they also gave us an overwhelming majority in the two arms of the National Assembly.
”And I think in doing that they also expect that this time around, APC would have no excuse not to deliver.
”We can’t say we are being blocked by the parliament; parliament is ours and those who don’t believe in change cannot be entrusted with the challenge of managing the change.
”And that is why I said we must give the position of responsibility to those who believe in our change agenda
”So today, that has been translated.”
He added that the challenge is, “as we say, to whom much is given, much is also expected”.
”We now have no excuse not to deliver on security, not to deliver on the economy and not to deliver on prosperity because that is what the ordinary man voted for and they are our constituents,” he noted.
”You can just imagine how I feel like a mother who has been carrying babies and now, we are on the verge of delivering twins in the two chambers of National Assembly,” he stated.
”And I am happy that the mischief of 2015 has been settled, so we must exercise our rights with a sense of responsibility and the ultimate objective must be to what extent these actions impact on the welfare of the Nigerian people,” he added.
