Chairman of the Ekiti State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Gboyega Oguntuase, has blamed Nigeria’s current challenges on alleged bad policies and non-listening nature of President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Speaking in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, Oguntuase said the Buhari-led Federal Government has failed Nigerians by not living up to its campaign promises.
Oguntuase stated that it is clear that Buhari and APC have no economic programme for Nigerians .
He said, “With what we are witnessing today, it is evidently clear that President Buhari and APC have no economic programme for Nigerians. The APC bad policies and non-listening nature caused the current economic recession.
“It is no longer news that the naira has stumbled to N420 per dollar. The petrol that was sold for N87 under Dr Goodluck Jonathan is now N145 per litre. Under APC government, prices of foods have gone up to the extent that people are dying in their numbers.
“Apart from increase in transport fare across Nigeria, air fare from Nigeria to London has increased from N250,000 to N400,000 while Nigeria to USA has increased from N350,000 to N600,000 and that is what is affecting the aviation industry.
“As we speak now, the economy is taking a catastrophic shape and Nigeria is under tension and suffocating economic situation which requires people of patriotic minds, who believe in the survival of this country to come together to restore our glory”.
