UK lawmaker's verdict on Buhari vindicates us a PDP.

THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the verdict by the former United Kingdom Secretary of State for International Development and member of the UK Parliament, Priti Patel, that the corruption and recklessness of the President Muhammadu Buhari Presidency is responsible for the nation's economic woes, vindicates its position on this administration.

According to a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary in Abuja on Thursday, the verdict has also vindicated its stand that the nation cannot survive another four years under President Buhari, 'whose administration has a single agenda of ruining and running our economy aground.'

The PDP further asserted that the finding by the UK parliamentarian that Nigeria has become grossly unsafe for investment since President Buhari took over office, due to his lack of transparency and gross disrespect for obligations, court orders and terms of transactions with investors, explains why its economy has been grinding in the last three and half years.

The party insisted that Nigerians can now see that President Buhari and the APC are the real problems of our nation, adding that 'because of the corruption and recklessness of the Buhari Presidency, investors are pulling out of our nation in droves, our economy has continued to crash, businesses are folding, there is mass job losses, acute poverty, hunger, strange diseases and pressure on families.'

The main opposition party added: 'Moreover, the verdict also vindicates our stand that the Buhari administration's much-touted fight against corruption is only targeted at opposition members, who are subjected to media trials, while members of his All Progressives Congress (APC) and the cabal at his Presidency openly indicted are shielded from prosecution.'

The PDP, however, urged Nigerians not to despair as the 2019 general election presents them with the opportunity of ending 'this repressive, destructive, obstructive and anti-people administration and vote in a new President in Atiku Abubakar to reposition our economy and return our nation to the path of good governance and economic prosperity.'
