Former presidential spokesman Doyin Okupe says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have failed Nigeria.
Okupe, a former member of the PDP, served as Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
The former presidential media aide, now a member of the Accord Party, said on Thursday that his new party is Nigeria’s only hope for political development.
He made this known at the party’s 2017 Southwest stakeholders’ summit in Ibadan, Oyo state.
The meeting attracted delegates from Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Osun, Ondo and Ekiti States.
Okupe said, “the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress are big trucks which old age and misuse has affected their relevance. Today, the PDP and APC have expired as a party. PDP as an automobile has spoilt its back aisle while APC crank shaft has broken.
“Accord is the only hope for political development in Nigeria. This party is for Nigerian youths to achieve their lofty dreams and ambition of managing their own affairs in this country. I am old and not interested in any office again. Nigerian youths can be whatever they want to be in Accord.”
