The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu (PDP, Delta), has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as power grabbing contraption which has failed Nigerians.
He disclosed this in a remark during the Inauguration of the PDP 2021 National Convention Organizing Committee (NCOC) in Abuja on Friday.
“In the last six years, the APC-led government has shown itself to be nothing but a power grabbing contraption, which has no interest in governance and the wellbeing of Nigerians.”
“That is why the APC led government has no strategy for wealth creation but only interested in reckless borrowing, policy inconsistencies and treasury looting to devastate our economy and wreck the naira which our party handed over to them at N167 to a dollar in 2015 to a disgraceful N567 to a dollar today,” he said.
Elumelu said the APC-led government has compromised national security and is superintending over escalated bloodletting, terrorism and unrelenting acts of banditry to the extent that mass killing is becoming a new normal in our country.
The Minority leader said Nigerians are reassured and inspired by the unity and oneness of purpose prevalent in the PDP and are ready to support the party in the 2023 elections.
“Their utmost solidarity resides with the PDP in their determination to oust the incompetent, corrupt, divisive and violent APC-led government and we must not let them down.”
“This is because their only hope of returning to a life of peace, security national cohesion and economic prosperity is in returning the PDP to power come 2023,” he added.
