Nigerians Are Anxiously Looking Forward To Dispensing With Buhari-Led APC – Secondus
The National Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has said that Democracy Day May 29, 2019, will mark the transition back to the PDP led Federal Government.
Secondus, in his message to commemorate this year’s democracy day celebration, signed by his Spokesperson, Ike Abonyi on Tuesday, described Buhari as a “non-democrat” who has put the country in “jeopardy”.
Secondus said the country “cannot afford him (Buhari) further if our democracy and nation are to survive”.
“Nigerians are anxiously looking forward to the opportunity to dispense with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the president,” the statement added.
Secondus said on a day Nigerians should be celebrating freedom and good governance, they are instead “groaning in the avoidable hardship”.
He said: “If democracy must survive in our country we must do away with APC and Nigerians are ready and willing to do just that because they cherish democracy as the best form of government.
“Going by their poor record of performance in the last 36 months, and the determination of Nigerians to put the country in the right footing, this is the last Democracy Day this president will mark as the president.
“The next Democracy Day May 29, 2019, which Nigerians and indeed all lovers of democracy are anxiously looking forward to would be the smooth transition from confusion and purposeless governance to real democracy which the PDP is returning to gift to the nation.”
NIGERIA NEWS had previously reported that Buhari in a national broadcast on Tuesday morning while reeling out the achievements of his administration in critical sectors of the Economy, praised Nigerians for the support they have offered his administration.
He said: “This administration came at a time that Nigerians needed Change, the Change we promised and the Change we continue to deliver. We have faced a lot of challenges on this journey and Nigerians have stood by us in achieving the three cardinal points of this administration namely; Security, Corruption and the Economy.
