Following the declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari that the nation’s economy is in bad shape and Nigerians should brace up for more hard times, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has observed that this admittance has validated the rejection of the President by Nigerians.

The President made the assertion to state governors at a meeting in Abuja on Friday.

In a reaction, the main opposition party in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja said the president admitted before state governors that he has failed to fix the economy of the nation, in negation of his 2015 campaign promises.

The party said by asking Nigerians to tighten their belts, President Buhari has admitted that our economy has terribly worsened under his incompetent watch and that he has no solution to our economic realities.

It added: “Mr President by this statement has admitted that he is tired and that the task of running a competitive economy such as ours is way above his capacity.

“If President Buhari had heeded wise counsel from Nigerians and the international community to hands off critical sectors of our economy and allow competent hands to manage them, our economy would not have gone into a biting recession, for which he is now asking Nigerians to tighten their belts.

“Nigerians must hold President Buhari directly responsible for the official flops, harsh economic policies and humongous corruption in his regime, which led to the collapse of our once robust economy, turned our nation to the poverty capital of the world with the worse form of hunger and starvation to the extent compatriots now consider suicide mission and slavery as options.

“Most reprehensible is that Mr President wants Nigerians to tighten their belts at a time he, his officials and associates are swimming in very expensive lifestyles.

“Our party holds that Nigerians across the board have made enough sacrifices in accommodating the incompetent, insensitive and corrupt Buhari administration and must not be forced to carry this burden beyond May 29, 2019; the very reason they are now rallying behind the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, ahead of the February 2019 Presidential election.”
