PDP Condemns Planned Teachers’ Sack By APC Governors
The PDP has described as wicked the alleged plan by governors elected on the platform of the APC to sack school teachers and other workers after the 2019 general election.
The party in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said it is horrified by the revelation by Kaduna State governor, Nasir el-Rufai.
“It is more disheartening to know from Governor el-Rufai, as widely reported in the media, that President Muhammadu Buhari even supported the implementation of this treacherous policy in his state, while at the same time, parading himself before Nigerians as pro-people and seeking to be re-elected.
“The PDP rejects in its totality this plot by the APC governors to victimize the schoolteachers or cause any worker at any level to suffer.
“This atrocious scheme against our citizens has further portrayed the APC and its leaders as explicitly wicked and anti-people group that have no modicum of goodwill towards Nigerians, but delight in seeing Nigerians suffer, as evinced in the Presidency’s refusal to address the devastating nation-wide strike action by health workers.
The PDP also expressed shock at what it termed the failure of the Buhari government to create job opportunities for teeming Nigerians since its assumption of office.
“It is totally inexcusable that instead of seeking ways to create wealth and better the lives of Nigerians, as was the hallmark of the PDP in our 16 years in office, the APC is rather thinking of ways to further pauperize the people, while their officials continue to fritter billions of naira through sleaze in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Presidential Initiatives for the North East (PINE) and other government agencies,” the party further noted.
