The national chairman of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Prince Uche Secondus has described Nigeria as a country in distress, saying that it has collapsed under the watch of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
“Our country is in distress. Our economy has collapsed. Security has collapsed. Badeh was killed because there is no security; you can see where we are today.
“Buhari is not in charge. He is not worried about what Nigerians are suffering. He is passing the bulk. Atiku will not pass the bulk; he will take full responsibility of the economy and the country.
“We must weep for our country. In the last three years, we are lagging behind in virtually every sector.
“APC is dancing on the grave of farmers killed by herdsmen. Farmers no longer go to their farms. Atiku’s priority is to provide security and the next thing is to unlock the abundant potentials of the country”, Secondus assured.
Atiku promised to introduce reforms that would decongest the Lagos ports and make other ports in Calabar, Warri and Onne more functional to aid the ease of doing business in the country.
“I am giving you my words that whatever can be done to improve business in this country which is in the confinement of our laws, I’ll do it. If we really want to make Aba the hub of business in Africa, we must listen to people like you and the challenges you’ve enumerated for me are very evident.”
