Ekiti PDP Blames Ruling Party for Hardship

… Says  nothing to celebrate on workers  day

The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party ,(PDP) has blamed the ruling All Progressive Congress, (APC) for economic hardships  in Ekiti  State and Nigeria in general .

The opposition party in a  statement made available to Newsmen by its State Publicity Secretary, Raphael Adeyanju in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, said that Ekiti state workers celebrated this year Workers Day in gloom because the ruling party has failed the masses both at the state and the national level.

” Yesterday was Workers Day, a day meant to celebrate workers all over the world, but here in Ekiti State, there was nothing to celebrate because  the government is not a workers friendly one.

“The condition of civil servants and the retirees is one of the worst in Nigeria.  Ekiti State pays a paltry sum of fifteen thousand Naira for civil servants and ten thousand Naira to retires as palliatives for the suffering inflicted on them . What can this achieve in this terrible economic situation? ”

Reacting to the current fuel scarcity and the general high cost of living in  the state, the PDP spokesman said that the situation has become unbearable.

” This terrible situation has reached a breaking point in Ekiti State. A liter of petrol now sells for two thousand Naira , the cost of transportation  is terrible with deplorable road network. Our people now battle with poverty, high cost of living and general state of insecurity”

The opposition party also accused  the state governor,  Biodun Oyebanji of misplaced priority, stating that while the ordinary citizen  is grasping for survival as a result of inhuman policies of the APC controlled federal  government.

Oyebanji is only interested in embarking on projects that have no direct positive impact on the lives  and wellbeing of Ekiti people.

” Recently, our party called the attention of the governor to his oversized cabinet, which we warned will lead to avoidable wastage, yet he has continued to make more appointments for political patronage.”

The PDP claimed that the  economic hardship currently faced by the people of Ekiti State is unprecedented in the history of Nigeria as a nation.

” It will not surprise anybody if Ekiti State government decides to shift all the blames on the clueless policies of the APC controlled Federal government because their party is only good at trading blames and making excuses .

” Since the inception of the APC government in Nigeria, the ordinary citizens have not experienced any respite. Immediately their party took over from President Good Luck Jonathan, it had been one excuse or another. President BolaTinubu has  also continued  to blame his own failure on his predecessor from the same party. ”

The opposition party stated that the present predicaments should serve as very good lessons to the Nigerian electorates .

“The APC is not a party to trust with people’s mandate .This is a party that has mastered the art of winning election with propaganda and vote buying. It is expected that by now, the electorates have become wiser with whom to trust with their future and never sell their future to vote buyers again .” Adeyanju said.
