The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has made Nigeria a laughing stock in the community of peoples.
The PDP has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of turning the country into the headquarters of world poverty with two recessions and
0 million unemployed youths.
It also regretted that Nigeria’s sovereignty is shared with Boko Haram terrorists and Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).
The National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorchia Ayu, affirmed them, adding that “the only thing APC is successful in is irresponsible borrowing”.
Ayu said this in his opening speech at the inauguration of the newly elected national officers of the PDP at the International Conference Center (ICC) in Abuja.
The PDP leader assured Nigerians that the PDP under his National Working Committee (NWC) is back to save and rebuild Nigeria. He said: “After the biggest economy in 2015, APC caused two recessions in the country and made Nigeria the poverty capital of the world. Almost
0 million Nigerians are currently unemployed.
“For the last six years, the APC-led government has mismanaged our diversity; divided the country regionally and religiously. This has increased religious tensions in the country.
“And with its marriage to nepotism, the incompetent APC federal government is fueling separatist agitations in eastern and western Nigeria. “Your excellencies, faithful party members, very worthy ladies and gentlemen, our beloved Nigeria is dangerously drifting towards a failed state. Terrorists are now sharing their sovereignty with Nigeria. Nigeria is simply ungovernable. Nigeria is crumbling under the leadership of a retired general.
“But I stand here today, not just to recount the spectacular failures of the APC. I assure you that PDP is back to save and restore Nigeria. Under the new NWC, the PDP will strengthen its internal democratic processes. We try to reach all party members, young and old, men and women.
“This national working committee will create alternative forums within the party where our youth and women can actively participate not only in mobilizing and winning elections, but also in influencing, shaping policies and planning the new development program of the party.
“Let us return to the heated debates of the party; pay attention to serious new thinking and implementation of policies and programs that will secure and improve the quality of life for all Nigerians. “To guide this process, the People’s Democratic Institute (PDI) will be revived and strengthened. Before the next election cycle, we will present a PDP manifesto that will restore hope to our people.
