Buhari’s Last 10 Months In Office Hasn’t Brought Joy To Nigerians – Labour Party


The governing All Progressives Congress, APC, has been accused of putting the nation under siege.

The Labour Party (LP), which made the accusation yesterday in Abuja, said that the last 10 months of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration had not brought ‘joy’ to the land, but fears as well as political and economic siege.

The party’s position was contained in a statement issued by its National chairman, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam.

According to Abdulsalam, the mentality of the present administration had created a nation without coherent practice of ethics, values and processes, but excessive action, taxes and laws that prevent growth, while government’s intervention in the economy remained controversial.

He said “APC’s ‘change’ has only been successful in the furtherance of the siege mentality, whereby Nigerians are being oppressed, isolated and manipulated in the face of the negative maneuvering of the ruling party.

“The APC government despite purposeful intervention by well-meaning Nigerians, the Labour Party, civil societies and the NBA, has created a corridor of consistent flouting of the ethics of good governance, participatory democracy along sacred laws of the land in the pursuit of perceived and contrived idealism, thereby making effective opposition low, and multi-lateral thinking deficient”.

Abdulsalam said what was glaring was the efficacy of government’s propaganda, which had consistently given excuses to cover up economic misfortune.

The LP chair, however, said President Buhari must be reminded that there is no fuel, electricity, gas, food and peace in the land.
