The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has urged President Muhammed Buhari to stop the unnecessary grumbling and concentrate on how to redeem the economy.
President Buhari had earlier in his Eid-el-Kabir message blamed the previous administrations for the economic downturn saying “it is impossible to separate the present from the past”
“The present recession is as a result of cumulative effects of worldwide economic downturn and failure in the past to plan and save for difficult times.”
Responding, PDP in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye urged the president to channel his energy on building the economy rather than on complaining.
“We want to use this opportunity once again to celebrate and felicitate with all our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and across the world on this occasion of Eid-El-Kabir as instituted by Allah through Prophet Ibrahim.
“We want to also urge Nigerians to use this period and pray for the recovery of our ailing economy, the unity and oneness of this Country and continue making sacrifices for Nigeria to become great again.”
“Mr. President in his Salah Message today, again blamed the present Acute Economic Recession on the past administration and global economic downturn. Let Mr. President and his Party, the APC, be reminded that it took a smart and experienced world-class Economic Team in the Year 2010 to lead Nigerians through a cushioned global financial meltdown and beyond.
“The “Change” is really with them (APC) and their barrage of falsehood. They were elected to further better the lots of Nigerians, and not to dish out constant complaints on the situation which they mindlessly created with its attendant consequences on our collective destinies.
“It is therefore high time they stopped this unnecessary grumbling and concentrate on how to redeem our economy by providing good governance to the people.
