Blame Buhari for Nigeria’s hardship – PDP chair

President Muhammadu Buhari 504x336

People Democratic Party (PDP) Deputy National Chairman, Senator Babayo Garba Gamawa has taken a swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), accusing the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of inflicting hardship unnecessarily on the common people in the country.
Gamawa, who made the allegation yesterday in a chat with journalists in Gombe, blamed the failure of the APC federal government to initiate sound policies that would positively impact on the lives of the citizens as responsible for the prevailing hardship being experienced across the country.
“Personally, there are certain areas Nigerians are left in the dark. If you are presiding over the affairs of the government, you are expected to introduce policies that will impact positively on the lives of Nigerians. I mean the common man. People can’t even compare life during PDP and now because things are tough because of hardship, the prices of goods in the market have tripled,” he said.
He dismissed claims by the APC attributing the prevailing hardship to economic recession as result of alleged PDP mismanagement of funds, stressing that the recent economic recession was a global phenomenon and not peculiar to Nigeria.
“Recession is not only in Nigeria, and if you go through the economic books, recession is something that comes once a while; whether you apply something or not it will go but the issue is, what do you apply to reduce the pains which is not there?” Gamawa said.
Gamawa assured that if the PDP comes to back to power 2019, the party would adequately tackle the recession in order to soften the hardship on the citizens.
“We know government is not a profit making venture but a service provider. A serious government is always concerned about three fundamental things; Developing the country by executing projects, improving economy by engaging experts to apply measures which will boost the economy as well as providing security for life and property of citizens,” he said.
