The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, during the 89th emergency PDP National Executive Committee meeting on Thursday, in Abuja, raised the alarm that Nigeria was sliding into bankruptcy.
He added that the Buhari-led administration is inflicting more hardship on Nigerians through its economic policies.
According to Secondus, “Our country is in a very bad shape, the populace are groaning in pains and the government’s response is heaping of further pains on them. This country is sliding into bankruptcy.”
He further said, “Amidst the frightening insecurity accompanied by mass killings that have set fears on the people, what you get from government is multiple tariffs, Value Added Tax etc and continued indulgences in lies and propaganda.
“It appears that governance is on autopilot with government agencies in a free world harassing and intimidating perceived enemies.”
Secondus further alleged that the Boko Haram insurgency had returned fully in the North-East while noting that due to the alleged inept under the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, Nigeria was still at the crossroads.
Hence, with the inept leadership under the All Progressive Congress, the citizens of the country do not know who is in charge.
However, he commended the Supreme Court for its judgment which led to the swearing-in of the PDP Duoye Diri as Bayelsa State governor.
He also commended Diri for his efforts to reconcile members of the PDP in the state.
Also regarding the Imo state election, the PDP National Chairman also lauded the apex court for accepting the application of the PDP and its 2019 Imo State governorship candidate, Chief Emeka Ihedioha.
Meanwhile, he assured that the PDP would ensure that its congresses in 26 states would be rancour-free.
In his remark, the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, called for inclusiveness in the congresses, as well as a transparent, free and fair party.
Meanwhile, the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, said the PDP senators would continue to lead vibrant opposition and ensure that they keep Buhari and his government on their toes.
