Hardship: PDP backs own govs’ position against Tinubu, APC

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has thrown its weight behind the position of its governors in their altercation with the President Bola Tinubu-led All Progressives Congress (APC) and the federal government over the increasing hardship in the country.

The PDP governors had warned that the situation in the country is inching towards what obtains in the economic crisis-stricken South American country of Venezuela, drawing angry reaction from both the federal government and the ruling party.

But doubling down on the governors’ position, the PDP in a statement issued on Monday by Debo Ologunagba, National Publicity Secretary, insisted that the APC and the Tinubu administration are responsible for the current biting economic hardship and surging wave of insecurity across the country.

The party said: “By seeking to allocate President Tinubu’s statutory duties to State Governors, the APC has unambiguously admitted that it foisted on Nigerians an incompetent President who cannot guarantee security and whose administration has devastated our national economy resulting in extreme hunger, hopelessness and desperation as evident in the protests, agitation and rising spate of suicide across the country.

“Every Nigerian is lamenting the terrible situation which President Tinubu’s ill-informed and ill-implemented policies have brought upon the nation.

The main opposition party, therefore, slammed the APC and its federal government for attacking the PDP governors for “speaking out against the failures” of President Tinubu and the APC government “which have plunged Nigerians into excruciating suffering.”

“President Tinubu is directly in charge of security and the national economic policies including administration of petroleum resources as Minister of Petroleum Affairs; other national revenues and cannot transfer his incompetence and failure to other tiers of government which have no control over national security, fiscal and monetary policies, which mismanagement by President Tinubu’s government has crippled our economy.
