The new national chairman of Labour Party, Dr Mike Omotosho, has said Nigerians should expect pleasant surprises in the 2019 general elections.
According to him, an underdog political party and an individual will shock everybody because the electorates were now socially aware and more politically conscious.
In an interview with Leadership newspapers, Omotosho said: “In 2019, Nigerians are in for a pleasant surprise, because they will get what they want. It has happened in the US, France and Austria.”
“We are going to have an underdog coming to shock everybody because the people are now socially aware and more politically conscious and they know that it is time for them to demand for what they truly deserve which is the dividends of democracy,” the cerebral politician said.
On his assessment of the government of the APC, he said: “It’s obvious that a lot of people are not happy with non-performance in critical sectors. People want things to happen faster than its happening.
“We cannot continue to hear good intentions because good intentions do not amount to much without efforts and real impact.
“People now want to see the dividends of all of those good intentions. People want more. They may be putting in their best, but people are saying that their best is not good enough.
“Additionally, people need truth, Justice and accountability. We are listening and we are working to deliver these needs.”
