The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP ), Prince Uche Secondus has said that Nigerians never bargained for the hardship they are currently going through with the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
Accusing the administration of practicing “nuclear nepotism” in the running of the government, the party chair said that all hands must be on deck to save the country from what he described as a “monumental disaster” that the administration has become.
A statement on Wednesday by Ike Abonyi, media adviser to the party’s chairman, said this was part of the conclusions reached at a meeting the leadership of the PDP had with members of the party’s National Assembly caucus on Tuesday.
Secondus was quoted to describe the legislature as the centre of national politics, adding that only the PDP could save the country from implosion in the months ahead.
Lamenting the rate at which people are being killed on a daily basis, the party chair was also quoted to have criticised the lop-sided appointments in critical sectors at the federal level.
“Nuclear nepotism is in vogue, you have to come from Daura to be appointed into a federal position”
“This is the time for all to stand up to save this country and all eyes are on the PDP to lead the way. I am ready and determined, even to be arrested for us to regain our liberty in this land.
“What we have ruling Nigeria today at the Villa is a broken party and a broken government. Spiritually, the APC has already left the villa, what we must fine tune is the physical accomplishment”, Secondus was quoted as saying.
The party chairman was said to have charged PDP members at the National Assembly to brace up to the challenges ahead, stressing that they are the leaders of the party at the grassroots.
He was also quoted to have assured them that the PDP leadership under his watch determined to take the appropriate and right the decisions while consolidating the party at the grassroots.
