THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA – People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party not to issue any New Year message to Nigerians since they have not met any of their previous promises to Nigerians.
This was mentioned in a statement signed by Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of PDP, on Friday, December 29, 2017.
The party described the ruling party’s promises as ‘litany of woes’ and explained that Nigerians were tired of the hardship imposed on them by the administration over the past two years, report says.
It said APC has been issuing out messages that are full of hope to Nigerians every New Year without any intention of fulfilling them.
The party also said that what is the purpose of the message when it would be full of lies.
PDP noted that the ruling party had promised massive employments only to leave increasing number of Nigerians jobless or underemployed between 2016 and September 2017.
The statement released by PDP read:
‘Nigerians have become overstretched by litany of woes visited on them in the last two years by the APC government, it would be the height of callousness for the party and its government to spew another round of propaganda and false hope in the name of New Year messages.
What else would they tell Nigerians apart from inventing new lies and propaganda as they have always done, particularly at the turn of each New Year.
Every New Year since 2016, the APC and its Federal Government have been reeling out heaps of promises which they have no intentions to fulfill.
Now, they are warming up to reel out fresh ones in January 2018.
What is the need of a New Year message from APC government when it would be replete with propaganda?
What is the need of their yearly assurances when the only thing we see is an arrogant and incompetent government plunging the nation into economic recession and visiting the citizens with the worst forms of untold hardship.
What seriousness should any Nigerian attach to a government that takes governance for granted, puts off Federal Executive meetings at the slightest whims and blame imaginary invasion of its offices by rats for the inability to meet required statutory functions?
What else should Nigerians expect from a government that promised massive employments, only to render 7.74 million Nigerians jobless between 2016 and September 2017; with combined unemployment and underemployment rate hitting 40.0 per cent as declared by the National Bureau of Statistics?’
