The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the verdict by the former United
Kingdom Secretary of State for International Development and member of
the UK Parliament, Priti Patel, that the corruption and recklessness of
the President Muhammadu Buhari Presidency is responsible for our
economic woes, vindicates PDP’s position on this administration.
The party says the verdict has also vindicated its stand that our nation
cannot survive another four years under President Buhari, whose
administration has a single agenda of ruining and running our economy
The PDP further holds that the finding by the UK parliamentarian that
our nation has become grossly unsafe for investment since President
Buhari took over office, due to his lack of transparency and gross
disrespect for obligations, court orders and terms of transactions with
investors, explains why our economy has been grinding in the last three
and half years.
The party says Nigerians can now see that President Buhari and the APC
are the real problems of our nation adding that because of the
corruption and recklessness of the Buhari Presidency, investors are
pulling out of our nation in droves, our economy has continued to crash,
businesses are folding, there is mass job losses, acute poverty, hunger,
strange diseases and pressure on families.
Moreover, the verdict also vindicates our stand that the Buhari
administration’s much touted fight against corruption is only targeted
at opposition members, who are subjected to media trials, while members
of his All Progressives Congress (APC) and the cabal at his Presidency
openly indicted are shielded from prosecution.
The PDP however urges Nigerians not to despair as the 2019 general
election presents them with the opportunity of ending this repressive,
destructive, obstructive and anti people administration and vote in a
new President in Atiku Abubakar to reposition our economy and return our
nation to the path of good governance and economic prosperity.
