Hamzat, a former Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure in Lagos, gave the advice at the unveiling of the party’s campaign buses at the APC Secretariat in Ikeja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports no fewer than 100 buses branded with the photographs of the party’s governorship candidate Mr Jide Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat were unveiled at the occasion.
Hamzat said the 16years of PDP were the country’s “years of locusts “ as the party did almost nothing to improve the lots of Nigerians.

The former commissioner said the APC had put the country on the path of progress in the last three years, urging citizens to keep faith with the party and stop the return of PDP through their votes.
“Our campaign will be very easy because PDP destroyed this country for 16 years. They spent N1.7trillion on power for 16 years and they were able to give the country just 2,950 megawatts.
“But within three years of APC, we have increased power to 6,500 megawatts.
“The PDP government did not complete any road in the country. But APC within three years in office has completed many roads in the country.
“It is this government that finished the Gombe-Yola-Taraba Road. The Oyo-Ogbomoso road is at about 80 per cent completion.
“Because of the future of our children, it is important that we protect this country from PDP.
“PDP should be buried as a party; they must never come back again. They don’t have any plan,” he said.
