PDP tasks FG on current hardship in Nigeria


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government to take urgent steps to tackle the hardship being faced by Nigerians.
The PDP said this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Debo Ologunagba in Abuja on Tuesday.

Ologunagna condemned the attempt by the APC to politicize the protest by Nigerians over the hardship in the country.

He said it was the constitutional right of Nigerians to protest in the face of poverty, hunger, killings and other harrowing experiences.

Ologunagba said the best would be for the APC led government to listen to the people and offer solutions to Nigerians, who could no longer meet their daily meets.

He said any government with idea of macro-economic policy management ought to know that increase in the pump price of petroleum products would lead to consequences on the economy.

He said that the same apply to high cost of electricity and arbitrary floating of the naira as as being witnessed in the country.

He said that the productive sector was being crippled with 28 per cent inflation rate, crashing of the naira from N167 to over N1,500 to a dollar.

Ologunagba added that closure of millions of businesses and exodus of international companies from Nigeria also resulted in the distress 41 per cent unemployment rate and unbearable pressure on millions of families across the country.

He said that thousands of Nigeria promising youths had left the country in droves due to killings, kidnapping and other acts of terrorism ravaging the country without concrete action plan and policies to address them.

“The APC must understand and come to terms with the fact that there is frustration in the land because of the suffocating economic and social policies; laidback attitude to security and massive corruption in the Tinubu administration,” he said.
