Five years of APC in Nigeria is embarrassing and depressing -Kalu


A Chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP), Dr Emeka Kalu has described the five years of APC in Nigeria as “embarrassing and depressing” for allegedly not delivering the dividends of democracy to the Nigerians.

Kalu in a statement signed by him, frowned at the nation’s debt profile with no verifiable key infrastructures to justify the amount borrowed so far.

He said “Take a look, you will find out why we need to vote them out. APC should take their place in the dustbin of history for their unprecedented failure.

Now another fresh request
$3.4 billion loan from IMF

Remember, when this administration came to power our total debt was little above #7 trillion.

We merely hear of approvals of billions of naira with nothing on ground to show.”

Dr Kalu also condemned the use of state apparatus to silent opposition politicians

“The most ugly aspect of their era is the frequent use of force to silent critics using the DSS and police.”

“The APC led Federal Government has become unpopular and are now using force to intimidate opposition states, sponsor campaigns of calumny against them and generate political and economic tensions within their states.”
