The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) outlines the hardship and anguish in the country as a catastrophe caused by the All Progressives Congress(APC) administration.
Described by the party as ‘rising social degeneration’, The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) urged Nigerians to co-operate and show brotherly love to one another at this trying time . The opposition party also held All Progressives Congress (APC) responsible for the predominant cases of suicide in the country, due to depression and the hardship embedded in the country by the Buhari-led administration.
Kola Ologbondiyan (The PDP national publicity secretary) stated “rising spate of suicides, slavery mission abroad, divorces, child abandonment and other social degeneration” are caused by the “worsening economic hardship, poverty, hunger and rising insecurity under the incompetent, corrupt, divisive and manipulative APC administration.”
“In the last few months, the news media has been awash with horrible reports of teenage suicide in our country.
“Banditry, insurgency, marauding, bloodletting and kidnapping with unmentionable ransoms, have almost become daily occurrences. Our citizenry is now battling with the worst kind of siege mentality.
“Constitutional violations, human rights abuses, arbitrary arrests, extra-judicial killings, assault on perceived dissenting voices and attempt at annexation of our institutions of democracy, particularly the judiciary, signposts a nation in dire strait. “Misery has set in. This is evident in the shrinking of our nation’s Gross Domestic Produce (GDP) to 2.1percent in the first quarter of 2019. “It is saddening that at the time Nigerians ought to be celebrating, they are rather forlorn, committing suicide and exiting the country in droves.
“Most Nigerians have become downhearted in the face of an administration that wrecked our once robust economy and divided our people; in the face of worsening joblessness, piling bills, hunger and diseases; in the face of incompetence, lies, and unfulfilled promises of free homes, monthly allowance to unemployed youth and the poor, bringing the naira to the same value as the US Dollar, creating of 5 million new jobs, ending of insurgency in three months and myriad of other false promises.
“Instead, what our nation has witnessed is an official entrenchment and elevation of incompetence, deceit, propaganda, failure and cabal mentality on the corridors of power; a situation where the only achievement is the foisting of economic recession and mortgaging of the future of our nation with the accumulation of N24.39 trillion debt, with no tangible project to show.
“It is instructive to state that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration has obstinately refused to allow any scrutiny of its books, knowing that they are catalogues of corruption, treasury looting, violations, impunity and acts that have brought our nation to its knees.”
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also claimed Nigerians became downcast after the electoral heist that happened on February 23, 2019 when Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, was robbed of his mandate.
