Economic Hardship: Ask Jonathan, Obasanjo for guidance – PDP youths tell Tinubu


In the face of Nigeria’s challenges, the youth wing of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, called on President Bola Tinubu to seek guidance from former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan for direction on how to move the country forward.

The PDP youth wing emphasized the need for a leader who can lead Nigeria towards economic recovery, stating that Tinubu has not been successful in this aspect.

Usman Okai Austin, National Coordinator of PDP Youths Frontier, expressed in a statement that former President Muhammadu Buhari spent eight years blaming Jonathan and the PDP for Nigeria’s issues, and now Tinubu and his team are doing the same by blaming the APC government under Buhari.

According to Okai: “We require leaders capable of addressing the nation’s current challenges and steering us towards economic recovery and security solutions.

“President Tinubu should seek guidance from experienced leaders like Jonathan and Obasanjo to move the country forward.”

He emphasized the importance of setting aside differences within the All Progressives Congress, APC, to focus on the well-being of Nigerians.

Okai noted that Tinubu’s role in Lagos State’s development is overstated because it benefited from its strategic location and previous status as the Federal Capital Territory before being relocated to Abuja by Ibrahim Babagida.

He also criticized the APC for relying on propaganda and highlighted the failure of the president’s economic policies to address modern challenges facing the country.

He added, “The confusion within the party leadership demonstrates a lack of understanding of Nigeria’s complexities. The president’s confusion reflects the party’s trend of blaming others.

“Nigerians are struggling with economic hardships, leading to dropouts from schools and soaring prices of goods and services, resulting in the depreciation of the Naira.

“In the midst of economic and insecurity crises, the administration appears confused.

“Tinubu, considered the best within the APC, has failed similarly to Buhari in economic management. It’s time for him to take responsibility for his administration’s failures instead of resorting to blame games. Nigerians are suffering, and it’s evident that the APC is not the better option for the country.”
