Nigeria is sliding dangerously, PDP warns
Acting national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) Prince Uche Secondus
The acting national chairman of the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus has said that Nigeria is
dangerously sliding and wants the All Progressives Congress
(APC) federal Government to genuinely engage Nigerians to
achieve peace that brings development.
He said at the thanksgiving and reception of Rivers State
Governor Nyesom Wike in PortHarcourt, Rivers state capital
on Sunday that the ruling APC should address series of
disturbing challenges in the land and stop abusing Nigeria
Judiciary because it did not go their way way.
Prince Secondus, who led other members of the National
Working Committee (NWC) of the party to the ceremony,
told the audience of top PDP leaders, including state
governors and members of the National Assembly that
Nigeria is sliding economically and politically with APC
showing it has no solution in sight.
He noted that when APC took over power from the PDP
seven months ago, the naira was exchanging for N160 to
one dollar but noted that currently, the naira has suddenly
dipped to 300 for a dollar under the APC government.
The PDP leader charged the APC to face reality and engage
the various stakeholders, including business and political
leaders to find a way out instead grandstanding that all is
Prince Secondus also described as dangerous to the polity,
the continued abuse of judiciary and the use of military and
other security agencies in purely political matters.
The PDP boss said that it has become vivid to all political
watchers that PDP, even in opposition remains the largest
party in Africa as indications has become very clear that APC
is not a political party. He added that not even the
harassment and persecution of its leaders would stop the
party from providing a robust and constructive opposition.
Meanwhile, outspoken governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele
Fayose has opened up on what transpired in the 2015
in the state.
The governor had been implicated by Dr Temitope Aluko, a
former scribe of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
alongside Nigeria’s ex-president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, with
rigging the last governorship election in the state.
