APC has only brought suicide, misery to this nation – PDP laments
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has on Sunday decried what it called escalated despondency, depression and misery that has plagued the country in the past few months.
Speaking through a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party urged Nigerians to support one another at this trying time, in order to check the rising social degeneration, particularly suicide.
According to the PDP, poverty, hunger and rising insecurity “under the incompetent, corrupt, divisive and manipulative All Progressives Congress administration,” are enough reasons to lose hope.
The statement read, “Banditry, insurgency, marauding, bloodletting and kidnapping with unmentionable ransoms, have almost become daily occurrences. Our citizenry is now battling with the worst kind of siege mentality.
“Misery has set in. This is evident in the shrinking of our nation’s Gross Domestic Product to 2.1% in the first quarter of 2019.”
The PDP lamented that at the time Nigerians ought to be celebrating, they were rather forlorn, committing suicide and exiting the country in droves.
It also knocked the presidency for refusing to allow any scrutiny of its books, adding that the records were catalogues of corruption, treasury looting, violations, impunity and acts that had brought the nation to its knees.
