​Economic Recession: Nigerians have realised electing APC was a costly mistake- Usman


Chieftain of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and one of the aspirants for the position of the National Publicity Secretary, NPS, in the party’s botched National Convention, held in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, last Wednesday, Barr. Kabir Usman, has carpeted President Muhammadu Buhari and his party the All Progressives Congress, saying they have failed in all aspects of managing the country’s economy and that Nigerians have realised that electing the APC in 2015 was a costly mistake.

Usman in a statement, yesterday, said since assuming the reins of power, President Buhari and his party, the APC have not only failed to meet their various campaign promises, but have also crippled Nigeria, that many have come to see it as least economically viable since 1999.

The statement read: “Since assuming the reins of power, President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress have not only failed to meet their various campaign promises, but are also presiding over a Nigeria that many have come to see as least economically viable since 1999.

“Looking at poverty, unemployment, inequality, insecurity, inflation, decay in infrastructures, suffocating symptoms of underdevelopment, judicial rascality, electoral inadequacies, market failure, among others, it appears Nigerians are in for worst situations with President Buhari and his APC led administration.

“The inflation rate rose from 8% in May 2015 to 16.50% in June 2016, as reflected in the high cost of goods and services. Unemployment rate that has risen to a whopping 12.8%.

“Nigeria only few days ago lost her place as the biggest economy in Africa to South Africa due to poor leadership on the part of Mr President and his team. Even the early euphoria that greeted Buhari’s coming has turned sour in the mouth of all Nigerians.

“Insecurity situation has gone from bad to worse, with Boko Haram transmuting to herdsmen terrorizing peaceful Nigerians in Benue, Kogi, Kaduna and some other states in the south.

“Indeed, this is the most trying period for our country and it’s citizens. The President has hugely disappointed everyone, the only thing left for him is to desist from continuing blame of the past administration, identify technocrats that can help him salvage a saggiing economy, and save the country from further shame.

“My heartfelt sympathy is with Nigerians that are further put into misery by this administration. Everybody is aware of the reality that since the inception of the APC Government every elections has ended inconclusive. From Kogi state Assembly and Senate elections to Bayelsa state gubernatorial election which was like war, so many innocent lives were lost, Abuja Area Council elections also exposed the unpreparedness and unreadiness of the APC and Buhari administration. Now we are hearing that APC supporters are being recruited as Adhoc staff ahead of the Edo Gubernatorial election.

“War against corruption is selective. We have a situation where petitions against some people within Buhari administration have not been investigatedby the EFCC. War against corruption is a very good one and a welcome development in Nigeria but it must be holistic and all inclusive and it must be within the ambit of our laws and fundamental human rights.

“The situation where people are condemned even before trials by the court of law is questionable and amounts to arbitrariness and impunity.”

“PDP has learned from its shortcomings and Nigerians from all walks of life can attest to the fact that the decision to elect Buhari and the APC in 2015 was a costly mistake.

“There is a limit to what propaganda, mischief and deceit can accomplish. Therefore, the President and his team must brace up for leadership challenges instead of their usual name calling and blame game,” the statement added.

The cardinal also said Buhari should go back to the drawing board, while urging him to do all he can to revamp the state of the economy.

The Archbishop Emeritus of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Olubunmi Okogie has called on President Buhari not to take the goodwill of Nigerians for granted.
The cardinal also said Buhari should go back to the drawing board, while urging him to do all he can to revamp the state of the economy.
Okojie said Nigeria needs a leader who will unite the country and not divide it.
He said “If President Buhari wants to make a quick turn back, he should take his inaugural speech and the All Progressive Congress, APC, manifesto, study them and then start afresh.
“At this stage of my life, I can only advise and admonish our policy makers, especially in the education sector, that are now battling with the lives of innocent children, to allow education to flourish; for if education does not flourish, our country cannot flourish.
“You have already seen it in some parts of the country. We have seen it in some of our children’s behaviours.”
President Buhari is expected back in the country on Sunday, June 19, 2016.
