The National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa, yesterday, blasted the All Progressives Congress (APC) saying the party rode to power on false and empty promises.
The former governor of Kaduna State, who spoke on the state of the nation at the 54th meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PRP, said in his opening remarks that the ruling APC which was enmeshed in internal crisis, offered Nigerians nothing in the last three years other than hardship.
He said none of the promises made by APC before coming to power in 2015 has been fulfilled, noting that hardship had overwhelmed the masses.
He said the economy has remained comatose, unemployment has assumed critical proportion, while insecurity among other issues have become life threatening and worrisome.
The former governor said his party would remedy the situation if voted into power in 2019.
“This APC administration, which rode to power on the back of false promises to this generation of hapless young men and women, seems to have no answers to this ticking time bomb beyond slogans such as N-Power.
“In fact, instead of creating jobs, the administration is busy cutting existing ones in the name of rightsizing or downsizing.
“This government, both at the centre and in the states that it controls, has proved that it has little or nothing else to provide Nigerians other than further mass impoverishment, frustration and hardships,” he said.
Balarabe Musa said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had not done better even in the area of security.
“In the almost three years that the APC has been in power, the reality has been otherwise. Yes, the Boko Haram camps in the Sambisa forest may have been wiped out, but the security menace that the group poses continues to manifest, with suicide bombs exploding almost on weekly basis, particularly in the north eastern part of the country,” he said.
He also berated the APC for lacking in internal cohesion, saying even in the fight against corruption, the government had been consistently assaulting due process and the rule of law.
