The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised President Bola Tinunu’s nationwide broadcast on Monday, describing it as “bereft” of “concrete” plans to address Nigeria’s problems.
In a statement issued yesterday, PDP spokesperson, Debo Ologunagba, said Nigerians should not believe what he termed President Tinubu’s “staged address in feeble defence of badly planned and hurriedly-executed policies that have worsened economic hardship and uncertainty”.
The opposition party alleges that in the last administration, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) – which had the current President as a party leader – “never fulfilled any of the promises made to Nigerians.”
The PDP further accuses the ruling party of remaining unaccountable and turning a once prosperous nation into the poverty capital of the world.
The opposition Party asked Nigerians not to despair over the President’s speech, but to remain calm and continue to support one another, while hoping the judiciary will restore their mandate.
