A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo state, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has described the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a scam.
Senator Anyanwu expressed bitterness that the party used her deceitful change mantra to defraud Nigerians.
Anyanwu regretted how the party came with the frivolous change agenda unknown to Nigerians that the phenomenon was targeted at destroying the country.
In a statement issued by his media aide, Anyanwu said, “In the last seven years of APC administration, Nigeria has lost over five million of her citizens across the six geopolitical zones in the country as a result of harsh and unreasonable policies.”
He noted that when PDP was in power, the cost of living was affordable and social amenities were available for Nigerians to access.
- According to him, the APC has succeeded in bringing poverty, penury and death to the masses.
He said, “Protection of lives and property is zero, pump price of petroleum, food items, tuition fees, healthcare services, and social amenities are beyond the reach of an average Nigerian. These were made available and affordable to Nigerians by the PDP government.”
Anyanwu, an erstwhile Senate Committee Chairman on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions admonished the people of the South East to resist any pressure to join APC.
He stated that joining the APC should be a taboo considering the fact that the party coordinated the arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and other unwarranted killing of Igbo youths.
Anyanwu said; “Insecurity has become the order of the day. The masses are presently sleeping with one eye for fear of the unknown. The situation has become incurable owing to the fact that APC is confused and lack direction. President Buhari does not have respect for the Igbo, no wonder he described them as a dot in a circle.”
He enjoined Nigerians to be prayerful that the current hunger shall soon pass by, while assuring of PDP’s willingness to usher in a new lease of life.
