The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Federal Government to stop the blame game and take concrete steps to save the economy.
The party, in a message felicitating with Muslims on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, said Nigerians were hungry for good governance.
The statement issued on behalf of the PDP’s National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, by its Chief spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, reads: “We want to use this opportunity once again to celebrate and felicitate with our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and across the world on this occasion of Eid-el-Kabir as instituted by Allah through Prophet Ibrahim. We want to also urge Nigerians to use this period and pray for the recovery of our ailing economy, the unity and oneness of this country and continue making sacrifices for Nigeria to become great again.
“Mr. President, in his Sallah Message today, again blamed the Acute Economic Recession on the past administration and global economic downturn. Let Mr. President and his party, the APC, be reminded that it took a smart and experienced world-class Economic Team in 2010 to lead Nigerians through a cushioned global financial meltdown and beyond. The ‘Change’ is really with them (APC) and their barrage of falsehood. They were elected to further better the lot of Nigerians, and not to dish out constant complaints on the situation which they mindlessly created with its attendant consequences on our collective destinies.
“It is, therefore, high time they stopped this unnecessary grumbling and concentrate on how to redeem our economy by providing good governance to the people”.
