Nigeria in scary times under Tinubu – PDP


Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has stated that the living conditions of Nigerians under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration are so poor that everyone is experiencing “scary times” in the country.

The PDP recently blamed President Tinubu and his economic policies for Nigerians’ deteriorating living conditions in a statement issued by the party’s spokesperson, Ologunagba.

According to the PDP statement, the president’s decision to remove fuel subsidies and float the naira resulted in high inflation, low productivity, business collapse, job losses, poverty, hunger, insecurity, and hopelessness in the country.

Responding to questions concerning the statement during an interview with ARISE TV on Tuesday, Ologunagba said for the past nine years in power, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had displayed “arrogance in failure” and a tendency to purely pursue individual interests.

He said, “What we have said several times over the years are coming to fruition, that the APC is not a political party; it’s a special-purpose vehicle and a conglomeration of individuals who came together to pursue their individual personal gains.

“Therefore, they have no mission, they have no vision, they have no policies or programmes. And that’s why we’ve found ourselves where we are now.

“Actually, the greatest thing for any leader is to be humble enough to admit errors. But what we’ve found over the years, in the last nine years now, is seeing APC displaying arrogance in failure.

“Rather than listen to other people, they are pretending to know it all; the insensitivity that ‘we can do it’ and that what other people are saying does not matter.

“Nigerians are in scary times under this government and everybody is affected both the people in government and the ordinary man on the street.”
