Nigerians Celebrating Worst Christmas Ever – PDP
The PDP has given reasons why this year’s Christmas is the worst Nigerians have ever celebrated.
The party said it is disheartening that Nigerians could not merrily celebrate Christmas due to the policies, sheer incompetence and gross insensitivity of the All Progressives Congress- led Federal Government.
The party, however, called on Nigerians not to despair but to use the occasion to show love, care and encourage one another regardless of religious, ethnic and political inclinations.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, shared the party's views on the nation's economic situation in Abuja on Sunday.
“Indeed, this is the worst Yuletide ever. There is no way one can sugarcoat the fact that the anguish Nigerians face today is because of the incompetence of the APC Government, which has also amply demonstrated that it does not care about the welfare and happiness of the citizens.
“Our country’s economic situation has astronomically gone from bad to worse in the last two years and painfully, there is no hope in sight under this APC regime.
“As we speak, many families are completely stranded ; many more can no longer afford their basic needs.
“Nigerians have become ravaged by economic hardship because the APC-led Federal Government has abandoned them and refused to channel the abundant resources available in the nation for the good of the people.
"Instead, they are heartlessly diverting such resources for their selfish political purposes while the people suffer.
“These horrendous realities imposed on us by the APC notwithstanding, we must not become despondent", he said.
