ABUJA- The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Thursday, alerted Nigerians of what it called the gradual sliding into bankruptcy by the country under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.
National chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus stated this yesterday while addressing the 89th Emergency National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the party in Abuja. Secondus who welcomed eight governors and two deputy governors to the meeting expressed displeasure at the worrying state of security in the country, noting that the situation was getting worse on a daily basis. He said: “Our country is in a very bad shape. The populace is groaning in pains and the government response is heaping of further pains on them. This country is sliding into bankruptcy.
“Amidst the frightening insecurity accompanied by mass killings that has set fears on the people, what you get from government is multiple tariffs, Value Added Tax, VAT and continued indulgences in lies and propaganda. “I can report to you that between the last NEC and now, our dear country is still at the cross road due to the now obvious inept leadership of the ruling All Progressives congress, APC. “The security situation in the country has refused to abate and nothing concrete is being done by the government to ameliorate it and stop the senseless killing of innocent Nigerians. “Even when the National Assembly after reviewing the situation and asked the President to overhaul the security system for greater efficiency, the government has continued to demonstrate their insensitivity to the plight of the populace. Nigerians have never been as afraid of their lives as they are at moment in this country. It’s as bad as that.”
