The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has lampooned the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, for the current state of the economy.
The PDP observed that since the APC came into power almost two years ago, Nigerians have been facing several problems as a result of poor leadership and implementation of policies that were anti-people.
PDP chairman in Niger State, Mr. Tanko Beji, in a statement to mark Nigeria’s 56th independence anniversary regretted that Niger state had not fared better under the rulership of the APC government of Abubakar Sani Bello.
“Niger State has not fared better under the leadership of “the clueless, visionless and rudderless APC government.
“It is sad that virtually all the social infrastructures like water, roads, health facilities etc inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, government by the APC has been allowed to rot away thereby making the sufferings of the people become more unbearable”, Beji said.
Tanko Beji recalled that the APC government declared state of emergencies on water, education and the health sectors but argued that “nothing tangible has been done to redress the deplorable conditions”.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Bihari, has appealed to Nigerians to bear with his government in the face of the economic recession.
Buhari, in his Independence Anniversary message, assured that the situation “will not last”.
