The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says Nigerians are going through untold hardship under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government.
The Vice-Chairman of the party in the North-East, Emmanuel Njiwah, stated this in Yola, on Wednesday, saying the All Progressives Congress (APC) had no plan to lead Nigeria.
Njiwah, a member of the Senator Modu Sheriff faction of the party, said the APC had devastated the economy.
He said, “Anybody with a plan for Nigeria cannot come into power and within the spate of a year, plunge the largest economy on the continent into recession.
“They have actually devastated the economy of Nigeria but they kept blaming the PDP. But the fact remains that as of May 29, 2015, Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa and as of May 2016, we have become a nation of sorrow.”
He added, “The PDP needs to come back. Is there anybody who is not suffering here? Those who voted them in and even we that didn’t vote them are suffering too. Our markets are not different. Our filling stations are not different. We are buying from the same markets.
“We want to buy a bag of rice for N7,000. We want to buy fuel at N87 per litre.”
