……..accusing the APC of persistently enforcing policies that negatively impact the lives of citizens.
By Johnson Atoukudu:
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed concern over the significant rise in the prices of essential goods and services in Nigeria, particularly during the 2023 Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, attributed the current economic crisis to the policies implemented by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The PDP lamented the decline in the purchasing power of Nigerians due to the increased costs of commodities, accusing the APC of persistently enforcing policies that negatively impact the lives of citizens.
Part of the statement reads, “It is saddening that on an occasion like this, millions of Nigerians are observing the period in frustration as they cannot afford the basic necessities to celebrate with their loved ones.
“Many cannot express their affection by traveling to visit or even sharing with their family members and friends all because of hardship and insensitive policies imposed by the APC government”.
The opposition party, however, urged Nigerians not to despair but use the season of Eid-el-Kabir to further unite in love, support and care for one another.
