APC, Tinubu govt have brought distress on Nigerians – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted the government of President Bola Tinubu.

 

PDP said Tinubu and his party the All Progressives Congress brought misery, hardship and insecurity on Nigerians.

 

The opposition party made this known in a statement signed by Debo Ologunagba, PDP National Publicity Secretary on Wednesday while congratulating Nigerian workers on this year’s International Workers’ Day.

 

Ologunagba noted that the ruling party wrecked the nation’s productive sectors and brought distress to the national life.

 

He charged Nigerians to use their resilient spirit to resist all anti-people tendencies that seek to compromise and undermine the democratic tenets of freedom, rule of law, accountability and probity in the country.

 

The PDP spokesman also condemned the continuing increase in electricity tariff and price of petroleum products.

 

The statement reads in part; “The PDP congratulates Nigerian workers on this year’s International Workers’ Day, charging them to use their resilient spirit to resist all anti-people tendencies that seek to compromise and undermine the democratic tenets of freedom, rule of law, accountability and probity in the country.

“The PDP salutes Nigerian workers for remaining steadfast as real drivers of the national economy despite the asphyxiating and life-discounting conditions occasioned by the ill-implemented economic and fiscal policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.

“Our party is deeply distraught that Nigerian workers and indeed millions of other citizens have, in the last nine years been subjected to misery, harrowing economic hardship and worsening insecurity by the rudderless and insensitive @OfficialAPCNg administrations, which have wrecked the nation’s productive sectors and brought distress to our national life.

“The PDP particularly condemns the continuing increase in electricity tariff and price of petroleum products with petrol now selling at over N1000 per litre in various parts of the country; a situation that has resulted in an astronomical increase in the cost of living and worsened the economic hardship in the country.

“As the party of the people, the PDP demands that the APC-led Federal Government ends its insensitivity towards Nigerians and use the occasion of the Workers’ Day to review all its retrogressive policies and take urgent action towards addressing issues that have direct bearing to the welfare of the citizens.

“The PDP however urges Nigerian workers and indeed all citizens not to give up hope but remain steadfast in their commitment towards a stable, united and prosperous nation, especially at this challenging time.

“The party celebrates the workers and wishes them a happy Workers’ Day celebration.”
