PDP: APC gov’t fueling S’East, S’West agitations

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Iyorchia Ayu, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government of fueling secessionist agitations in the South East and South West through nepotism.

Sen Ayu made the allegation Friday in during the presentation of certificates of return and inauguration of the newly elected national officers of the PDP.

He assured Nigerians that the PDP under his National Working Committee (NWC) had returned to rescue and rebuild Nigeria.

He said, “From the biggest economy in 2015, the APC has given the country two recessions and turned Nigeria into the poverty capital of the world. Today, close to 40 million Nigerians have no jobs. 

“In the last six years, the APC-led government has mismanaged our diversity; divided the country along regional and religious lines. It has exacerbated religious tensions in the country.

“And through its marriage to nepotism, the incompetent APC federal government is fueling secessionist agitations in the East and West of Nigeria.”

“I stand here to assure you that PDP is back to rescue and rebuild Nigeria. Under the new NWC, PDP will strengthen its internal democratic processes. We shall endeavour to reach out to all party members, young and old, male and female.”

He further said unlike PDP’s history of performance and legacy achievements in 16 years, Nigerians had seen the limit of propaganda and demagoguery, stating that, “The only thing the APC is doing successfully is irresponsible borrowing.”

He recalled that the PDP administration on the other hand negotiated and obtained forgiveness of over $30bn of debt, making Nigeria almost a debt-free country.
