The Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Walid Jibrin, has described Nigeria as a country in disarray under All Progressives Congress (APC) rule.
Senator Walid regretted that the APC administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has turned Nigeria into a country where people live in fear, adding that there is no free movement in today’s Nigeria as people can no longer travel safely by road and by rail while travelling by air is now for the rich.
The second republic senator boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has positioned itself to and prepared to chase out the Buhari government and return the country to a state of peaceful coexistence.
The PDP BoT chair, who spoke with journalists during the wedding of a son to the National President of Textiles workers union, Comrade John Adaji, in Kaduna, boasted that PDP will send the ruling APC packing from the nation’s seat of power in 2023 general elections
Senator Walid said when PDP finally produces its presidential candidate and the zone is known, APC would have no option other than to pack out of government.
“We in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are very careful and hopeful about the achievements and industrial development of Nigeria.
“We met and agreed that the National Chairman of our great party should come from the North Central. And that one had been achieved. Other arrangements are on the way. We are going to decide soon where our presidential candidate will come from.
“The next government which I hope is going to be the PDP government will look at the issue of insecurity and find a lasting solution to it and bring back the country to a state of peaceful coexistence and free movement.
“With the present insecurity in the country, every common man and woman knows that Nigeria is in a big problem under the current government. Nigeria is in a state of disarray. But a good political party and a good government can solve this problem of insecurity.”
“If government policy is consistent, Nigeria wouldn’t have been where it is today. Every policy needs to be consistent for a period of five years running. But changing policy soon after implementation by successive governments is not good for the industrial development of the country. If Nigeria must be re-industrialised, government policy on manufacturing sector must be consistent to stand the test of time”, he said.
