Prince Uche Secondus
The immediate past Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has charged All Progressives Congress APC federal Government led by President Muhammedu Buhari to stop causing
more problems for the country and set out to tackle the myriads it already created.
Prince Secondus noted that rather than strive to address the major socio-economic issues weighing down Nigerians due to the confusion and lack of direction of the government in the last one year, the APC is rather busy creating more battle fronts and compounding the challenges of the county.
“Today under APC leadership the country has become a whole theatre of acrimony with agitations here and there with no clear sign of solution in sight forcing political watchers to question if the country is disintegrating.
“Even the Boko haram issue that was supposed to be progressing well has run into troubled waters because of the confusion in the ruling party.
“Ditto the federal Government’s anti corruption fight is even skewed due to insincerity as Ministers already confirmed to be corrupt internationally continue to move untouched while Governors with immunity
are harassed daily.
“Rather than confront the various challenges overwhelming the country, APC is currently bleeding soaked in its own greed and the obvious consequence is that a house divided against itself is bound to fall and the party is already falling,” he said.
The former PDP boss said that the federal government under Buhari’s watch is gradually eroding all indices of democratic principles especially those anchored on the rule of law and separation of power as it has continued to violate all rules of free speech as enshrined in our status.
Unlike what the world is watching in Britain where democracy is being put into action and in America where President Barack Obama is being routinely criticized, Nigerians are leaving in fear, the press, judiciary, and politicians are in heavy apprehension because of the draconian system of our operatives who come after them for airing their views.
He advised the government to respect various organs of governance and stop seeing himself as the Lord Mayor of state Governors and the National Assembly as this will amount to dictatorship.
The on going attempt to humiliate and intimidate the National Assembly, Secondus is dangerous as the parliament remains the opium of democracy.
According to Secondus, while federal government creates more and more problems it leaves unattended to very critical projects, for example, after the hype created by his government on cleaning up Ogoniland, nothing is happening in the project while Governor Neysom Wike massive opening up of Ogoni roads neglected over the years is evident.
The PDP Chieftain said that APC should note that after one year in office deceit by propaganda and lies can no longer be sustained as Nigerians now know better that inside the noisy drum is nothing but confusion and lack of direction.
Secondus finally warns the APC disorganized team to gauge the pulse of their various actions and inactions and stop moving the ship of state dangerously to avoidable turmoil as Nigerians are still waiting for all the wonders they promised.
However, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on July 8, Wednesday, told the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) that it will fail at its plot to unseat Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
The PDP described the plot as “an enterprise in futility.”
