The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamawa State chapter has promised free education for all Nigerians when it returns to power in 2019.
Chairman of the party in Adamawa State, Abdulrahman Bobboi while speaking with newsmen recently, lamented the havoc the APC-led government had done to Nigeria sine it assumed power in May, 2015.
He recalled that before the APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015, a bag of rice was sold for N8,000 but now it had skyrocketed to N22,000.
He also recalled how a litre of fuel was sold for N87 but today, the story had changed as the product was now sold for N145 per litre.
On what to expect if the party returned to power in 2019, the PDP chieftain said, “By the time PDP takes over in 2019, we will declare free education for all the time PDP takes over in 2019 we will declare free education for all.
“Illiteracy is a major problem to any society and this government has made it difficult for Nigerians to have three square meals talk more of paying school fees.
“We are working with our economic team to develop models to jack up the revenue profile of the state when we take over.”
When asked about his party’s achivment after 16 years in power, Bobboi said, “During our time, we built about 12 universities in northern Nigeria; the Almajiri schools were built all over the country, all these were done to eradicate ignorance.
“It was a PDP government that established Adamawa State University, and during that time, the people of Adamawa enjoyed free education.”
