The main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to come up with a means of alleviating the suffering of Nigerians, The Punch reports.
This comes even as the nation’s economy continues to face torrid times. According to the PDP, President Buhari needs to restructure the country as there are also issues of unemployment, terrorism, Fulani herdsmen’s attacks, inflation, infrastructural decadence and militancy.
This was contained in a statement issued at the end of a meeting held on Tuesday, July 12, in Akure by the leaders of the PDP in the South-West, which was signed by the National Vice-Chairman, South-West PDP, Eddy Olafeso, and 21 other leaders.
Buhari is laughable The statement reads: “The federal government must tackle the issues of unemployment, terrorism, Fulani herdsmen’s attacks, inflation, infrastructural decadence and militancy that have permeated every part of this country without actions to check the sufferings of the masses.
“The zonal chapter also calls for the implementation of measures that will ameliorate the sufferings of the masses as the APC administration has dissipated most of its energy on an anti-corruption crusade which, unfortunately, seems to be targeted at only the leaders of the opposition, particularly in the South-West. “Contrary to the thought of the APC-led federal government, we, in the South-West PDP, want the government to succeed in contributing its quota to the growth and development of this country.”
The PDP had after 90 days of the new government, described as alarming, the “damage” so far done on the nation’s economy by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, since it took office at the centre.
According to the party, the “shambolic” state of the nation’s economy within the period is a direct fallout of uncertainty created by the inability of the Buhari-led government to chart a clear-cut economic policy, worsened by abuse of regulations, and flagrant violation of constitutional provisions.
