The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government to proffer lasting solutions to the current economic and political challenges confronting the nation rather than pretending that all is well.
Speaking yesterday at a thanksgiving service in Port Harcourt, organised in honour of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, whose election was upheld by the Supreme Court, the PDP acting national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, also asked the APC to “stop abusing the judiciary”.
Secondus, who led other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to the thanksgiving, told the audience, including state governors and members of the National Assembly, that Nigeria was gradually lagging behind economically and politically, with the APC showing it has no solution in sight.
He noted that when APC took over power from the PDP in May, last year, the Naira was exchanging for N160 to one Dollar, but pointed out that currently, the naira has suddenly tumbled to N300 for a Dollar under the APC government.
Mr. Secondus, therefore, asked the APC to face reality and engage various stakeholders, including business and political leaders, to find a way of solving the many challenges facing the nation.
