National chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus at the weekend re-echoed a recent statement made by the lawmaker representing Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye, about PDP-led administrations being more circumspect about taking loans. Recall that Melaye had last week stated that whereas the PDP-led governments borrowed N6trn in its 16 years in power, the federal government led by his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has borrowed N11trn within three years.
Bringing this up during a thanksgiving and grand reception organised by Olorogun John Oguma, a chieftain of the PDP, in honour of Chief James Ibori at the Ibru Unity Square, Ovwor-Olomu in Delta state, Secondus said, “an APC senator, Dino Melaye, said that in three years, APC borrowed N11 trillion. PDP ruled for 16 years but only N6 trillion was borrowed. Who is more corrupt? Where is power?’’ The PDP national chairman called on Nigerians to support the PDP to rescue the country from what he described as the looming total collapse under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress government.
He noted that under the APC-led Federal Government, Nigerians had been subjected to hunger and insecurity as bloodletting pervaded almost all the states in the country with the government becoming helpless. Secondus averred that the lies and propaganda upon which the APC rode to power would not work for the 2019 general elections.
