Dr. Iyochia Ayu, The National Chairman of The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has explained that Foreign loans incurred under the Buhari administration alongside economic woe has made Nigeria the poverty capital of Nigeria.
During an interview with BBC Hausa Dr Ayu stated although the PDP made some questionable decisions, The party consistently owned up to its shortfalls contrasting to the current administration which is full deception.
His words, “it is generally known that since the assumption of power of the incumbent government, it couldn’t fulfill promises made to Nigerians.
“We don’t lie, we don’t say we’ve done what others have done or are doing. Now, we are ever ready to make amends.”
He further stated that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) had organized a workshop for party members recently elected with the aim of enlightening them on strategic methods of curbing insecurity in Nigeria.
Furthermore, Ayu expressed his frustration on how the insecurity has increased to the extent that there is no guaranteed safety from Kaduna to Abuja, He assured Nigerians PDP are ready for the challenge to handicap insecurity.
“The situation in our country is so bad that anyone on a journey from Abuja to Kaduna, whether by road or by rail, would not have a peaceful mind.
“It is a must that we right the wrongs in our party, to get people’s support. Every side must be given the chance to comment so that together, we work in unison to achieve what the people desired.
“We shall discuss with people to hear their views, because we would not trust the Nigeria of today in which people are diverting official things for their interest, rather than for the people,” he said.
Ayu also criticized the number of foreign loans Nigeria attracted under Buhari, alleging that doing so had made Nigeria a beggar in the comity of nations.
