Uche Secondus, former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has described Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari as a theatre of acrimony.
He said this in a statement, while charging the Buhari government to “stop causing more problems for the country and to set out to tackle the ‘myriads’ it already created”.
Secondus said that “rather than strive to address the major socio-economic issues weighing down Nigeria due to the confusion and lack of direction of the government in the last one year, the APC is busy creating more battlefronts 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,” he said on Tuesday.
“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.”
According to Secondus, “while the federal government creates more problems it leaves unattended to 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’s massive opening up of Ogoni roads neglected over the years is evident”.
