The main opposition party in a statement on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan stated that the has no iota of concern for Nigerians.
The PDP slammed the ruling party for supporting the increase in the price of fuel from N87 to the current N148 per litre as well as the endemic corruption in the Buhari administration.
The party said: “Only a corrupt party that relishes in inflicting suffering, pain and anguish can defend the actions of Buhari administration.
“By kicking against our solidarity with Nigerians in our caution to President Muhammadu Buhari against making empty promises to the people, the APC has pitched itself against the Nigerians and further confirmed that it is a propaganda machine that only thrives in lies, deception, fake promises and incurable corruption.”
According to the PDP, the APC would prefer to turn a blind eye to the sufferings of Nigerians, most of whom can no longer afford their staple foods, basic accommodation and other necessities of life.
“We found it tragic that the APC would attempt to paint our economy as sustainable when in the actual fact it has been wrecked by President Buhari, with a terrifying N28.6 trillion debt burden, a weakened currency at N480 to a dollar, a frightening 23.1 unemployment rate and a productive sector that has been crippled by poor policies, to the extent that our nation is rated as world poverty capital.
“It is heartbreaking that the APC is ignoring the cries of Nigerians and chose not to speak out on the escalation of insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and incessant killings of Nigerians under President Buhari’s watch.
“It is appalling that the APC finds nothing wrong with the fact that the situation in our country has become so devastating that compatriots now resort to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options,” APC said.
